    Although, on 10 May, The Silver Beatles did not impress Larry Parnes enough to hire them for Billy Fury, they were ultimately hired as backing band for Johnny Gentle on an upcomming tour of Scotland. The tour lasted just over a week (20 - 28 May)

    The band consisted of the same members as the Parnes audition (John, Paul, George, Stu Sutcliffe and Tommy Moore).

    The first photo featured here has been around, publicly, since it was taken but no other photos showing any of The Beatles have surfaced. Surely, being the scruffy lot that they were, The Beatles were probably of little interest to any photographer.

    According to a notation on the backside of a copy of this photo,the photo was taken at Glasgow Theater. However, that venuewas not played on the Johnny Gentle tour.

    This appears to be from the same show. However, that has yet to be verified.
