Description

Exceedingly rare 1965 poster for the Beatles at Shea Stadium

Fantastic original concert poster advertising the Beatles concert at Shea Stadium on August 15, 1965, 11 x 17, billing other shows throughout the summer featuring artists such as Herman's Hermits, the Dave Clark 5, The Kinks and Moody Blues, Phil Ochs, Chuck Berry, and Johnny Cash. The simple poster is printed with bold black lettering on heavyweight cardstock. In very good to fine condition, with light spotting and dampstaining to the upper right. Designed as generic 'throwaway' posters, these are extremely rare today. The legendary Beatles show at Shea Stadium went on to break records for attendance and revenue, and today is still considered one of the greatest concerts of all time.
