July 1963, a contract is signed between Brian Epstein (The Beatles manager) and Bruno Coquatrix, owner of the mythical theater in Paris (France) : The Olympia. Unique fact in the Beatles career, this contrat was for a 3 weeks residence at The Olympia from January 16th to February 4th, 1964. By contract they had to play 2 shows per day with a 2 days break in the middle of the residence.
Having already some audience in U.K, they were almost unknown in France and as it was not sure they would fill the venue by themselves, they had to share the show with two other artists : Sylvie Vartan (young Fench pop singer) and Trini Lopez (at the top of his career at this time). Both artists had their names the same size and same time of show.
At the beginning, the Beatles were ending the first part of the show. The first 2 days, it was polite applause at the end of each song, but the crowd was totally quiet while they were playing. After 3 days, organizers had to change completly the order as the Beatles were stealing the show and the artists having to come after them were not feeling very well about that.
When I had the opportunity to go see the Beatles for an afternoon show (I was a very young teenager and not allowed to go at night), they were definately ending the whole show with a crowd clapping hands and standing up to dance while they were singing. Their conquest of France was accomplished.
During their stay in Paris, they got the news that the song "I Want To Hold Your Hand" reached #1 in USA. They were ready to conquier the world. :)
As far as I remember, they had a small show around 20 minutes long. Here is what they played :
