To further mark the occasion, islanders will forever be able to remember the day the band performed in Guernsey, after a plaque was unveiled at Candie Gardens yesterday.
At the afternoon event, Deputy Darren Duquemin made a speech before the plaque was revealed by Gill Girard, née Pontin, whose father, Baron Pontin, was a promoter who brought the band to the island.
Deputy Duquemin, a member of the Culture and Leisure Department, said that 50 years on from the concert, he thought The Beatles were still one of the biggest bands in the world.
