Estimate: $200+

Description

Original program for a concert featuring Donovan and The Who at Britannia Pier in Great Yarmouth, England, in August 1965, eight pages, 8 x 10.75, listing other acts like Peter and the Spectres, Chris Carlsen, and Dana Gillespie. The program contains images of all of the groups, including two for The Who, and mentions their “top ten smash hit ‘Anyway Anyhow Anywhere.’” The front cover bears an erroneous date notation of July 1965. In very good condition, with creasing and handling wear. The Who played two shows on Sunday nights at the Britannia Pier in August of 1965, including dates on the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd. On the 1st, Donovan didn’t show up for the evening's first show, and The Who refused to play longer, ultimately forcing the support acts to fill the time.
