“For our last number I’d like to ask your help. The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands. And the rest of you, if you’d just rattle your jewellery. We’d like to sing a song called Twist And Shout.” John Lennon

On November 4, 1963, at Prince of Wales Theatre in London, the Beatles performed at a Royal Command Performance for the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowden.   Their short four-song set included “From Me To You,” “She Loves You,” “Till There Was You,” and “Twist And Shout.” The Beatles were one of 19 acts appearing at the concert which was taped and broadcast on ATV in the UK six days later.
