Tour program page, 8 x 10.25, from their Spring 1963 tour of England with Roy Orbison, featuring individual portraits of all four band members. Signed in fountain pen, “Paul McCartney,” and “Ringo Starr,” and in blue ballpoint, “John Lennon,” and “George Harrison.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo dating the signatures to circa May 1963, and stating, in part: “These signatures date precisely from the period of their time on the road with Roy Orbison, and this very tour represents a tangible and critical turning point for The Beatles in 1963, and by the end of the year they would be the biggest things in Great Britain.” In fine condition, with expected light wrinkling. Originally the headliner, Orbison was quickly reduced to number two on the bill, as the Beatles—and their fans—completely dominated the show. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
