Minimum Bid: $1,000.00

Program for the Beatles' 1963 UK tour with Roy Orbison, 8.25 x 10.5, signed inside by the top-billed performers next to their images in ballpoint and fountain pen, "Paul McCartney," "John Lennon," "George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr," and on the following page, "Sincerely, Roy Orbison." The program is also signed inside by Gerry and Freddy Marsden, Louise Cordet, David Macbeth, Ian Crawford, Erkey Grant, and Tony Marsh. In very good to fine condition, with overall light creasing, and a central vertical fold. Consignor notes that the autographs were obtained backstage at the Gaumont Cinema in Southampton on May 20, 1963. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the original recipient who explains that he “was lucky enough to be invited backstage by a friend Erkey Grant who was also on the bill and got the autographs.” 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 Fab Four closing the set in the traditional headlining spot.
