Bambi Kino set list

I had the pleasure of being present at the Indra Club in Hamburg for the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first concert there. The band “Bambi Kino” had the honour of trying to recreate a typical Beatles gig from the Hamburg days.

They did a great job and had lots of energy on stage despite the damp and sweaty environment. All the guys played well and had great voices. Here’s some of the songs they played:

Some Other Guy

Lend Me Your Comb

I’m Talking About You

Soldier of Love

Bad Boy

To Know Her Is to Love Her

Red Sails in the Sunset


Cry for a Shadow

Nothin Shakin’ but the Leaves on the Trees

The Sheik of Araby

Lonesome Tears in My Eyes

Bésame Mucho

Mr. Moonlight

Anna (Go To Him)

Falling in Love Again

A Shot of Rhythm and Blues

Ask Me Why

Slow Down

Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey Hey

Everybody’s Trying to Be My Baby

So How Come (No One Loves Me)

Sure to Fall (In Love with You)

Ain’t She Sweet

‘Till There Was You

Shakin’ All Over

Memphis, Tennessee

Take Good Care of My Baby

A Taste of Honey





Shimmy Like Kate

I Saw Her Standing There

3.30 Blues

Keep Your Hands Off My Baby

Honey Don’t

Long Tall Sally

They also did “Rock’n’Roll Music”, backing the ukulele playing Stefanie Hempel. Horst Fascher was going to reprise his “Hallelujah I Love Her So”, but chickened out. He was replaced by someone called Dirk who gave a good interpretation of the song.

    Been there, too. What a night. Thanks very much for the setlist! But didn't they end the show with a second version of "Some Other Guy"? I remember that clearly. And can you say exactly when "Rock'n'Roll Music" and "Hallelujah I Love Her So" were played?

    I'm afraid I didn't take notes during the concert, and this list has been compiled later on. I think this concert was broadcast by "Arte" yesterday, so a more correct set list may be forthcoming..
