The Beatles on the River Boat Iris

The Beatles have appeared 4 times on the Royal Iris River Boat for concerts. Some were called "A Riverboat Shuffle", others just "A Grand River Cruise"

They appeared on the following dates:

- 25 August 1961
- 6 July 1962
- 10 August 1962
- 28 September 1962

Some sources also talk of a fifth performance on 24 August 1962, and (fake?) tickets exist with a wrong day (Saturday instead of Friday).

On July 6th 1962 The Beatles shared the bill with Acker Bilk's Jazz Band. Acker Bilk is sometimes called the "Great Master of the clarinet".
