Barcelona!

Poster for the event
In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of The Beatles' concert at the bullring Plaza de Toros Monumental in Barcelona, Spain, the Barcelona Beatles fans are hosting a Beatlesweekend from 26. to 28. June, 2015. The Beatles ended their 1965 European Tour here on 3 July, 1965 after having played 14 previous concerts spread over eight dates in various European countries.

Special guest for the weekend is a Beatle who was fired from the group a long time before that tour, Pete Best.

With this celebration, the arrangers are hoping to establish a tradition that becomes an annual event on the last weekend of every June, with repercussions over all Barcelona.


A trading card album of The Beatles has been published by Barcelona Beatles Weekend. The album has 32 pages and 86 stickers.
