Program for the Beatles' 1963 UK tour with Roy Orbison, 7.75 x 10.25, signed inside by the top-billed performers next to their images in bold fountain pen, "Paul McCartney," "John Lennon," "George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr," and on the following page, "Sincerely, Roy Orbison." In very good condition, with overall creasing and handling wear. Consignor notes that the autographs were obtained in person at the Brighton Hippodrome on June 2, 1963. Although Orbison was originally scheduled to be the headline act, the public's reaction to the Beatles tour resulted in them being co-headliners, with the Beatles closing the set in the traditional headlining spot. A hugely desirable, early piece of Beatlemania.
