1960's history of Mersey Ferries and The Beatles

The Beatles performed four times on-board the ‘The Royal Iris Ferry’ during the 1960's.

These performances were quite the unique set of shows because they span three distinct periods in the development of The Beatles:

  • Riverboat Shuffle Cruise 25th August 1961 – Pre-Epstein when The Beatles were still wearing leather suits!
  • Riverboat Shuffle Cruise August 1962 – Epstein was their manager by which time he had changed their image and changed the leathers for suits, shirts, and ties! Four days after their 10th August appearance on the Ferry, Pete Best was sacked and replaced by Ringo Starr.
  • Their final show on the ferry on 28th September 1962 featured Ringo on drums. By this time they had completed recording their first single ‘Love Me Do’ at Abbey Road studios. One week after the show ‘Love Me Do’ was released.
