The performances included, "I Saw Her Standing There", "You Can't Do That", "All My Loving", "She Loves You", "Till There Was You", Roll Over Beethoven", Can't Buy Me Love", Twist And Shout" and "Long Tall Sally".
There were chaotic scenes outside the Southern Cross Hotel (on the corner of Bourke and Exhibition Streets) when the Beatles appeared on the balcony just above street level. Exhibition Street was blocked by an estimated 20, 000 screaming fans. John allegedly gave Nazi salutes to the crowd.
Inside the hotel the Beatles were reunited with Ringo who had flown in with Brian Epstein that morning.
Jimmy Nicol packed his bag and left the next day.
The Southern Cross then, is the ONLY hotel to play host to ALL FIVE Beatles . so it plays an interesting part in their history.
