As part of his Good Evening Europe tour, the star played in the city with back-to-back shows which pushed him, and the three other Beatles, to their limits in the band's early days.
''Starting the tour here was actually suggested to me by my promoter," the Telegraph quoted him as saying. ''I like the idea very much of opening in Hamburg as it echoes the opening of my career with The Beatles.
“I like the idea of going back to a city that I have such fond memories of. This is my chance to bring our current show home to where it all began,'' he added.
