The night The Beatles played Shrewsbury Music Hall

David Wiseman, bass guitarist with The Deltas, didn’t think that much of the Liverpool foursome on the bill with them at the Music Hall in Shrewsbury on December 14, 1962.

That Liverpool group were The Beatles, performing at the county town for the first time.

They had had a minor hit a few weeks beforehand with Love Me Do and, although nobody knew it that Shrewsbury night, were about to explode on the music scene as a global phenomenon.

David, 76, lives these days in West Sussex, but at the time was living in Oakfield Road in Copthorne and worked at Shrewsbury’s big Maddox department store, doing window dressing and helping in the shop.

The Deltas were a Shrewsbury band with a strong local following and were one of the supporting acts for The Beatles, who topped the bill.
