The Beatles perform before the Queen Mother

Scarce original program for the infamous appearance of the Beatles at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London on November 4, 1963, for a royal variety performance before Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, 8.25 x 11.75, 52 pages, with the band listed as the seventh act in the program. The program also contains attractive images of Queen Elizabeth II and The Queen Mother, as well as pictures of the other acts and musicians. In fine condition, with some tiny stains, and light wear, to the covers. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. This was the event where John Lennon took a jab at the Crown with his famous bit of stage banter: 'For our last number I'd like to ask your help. The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands. And the rest of you, if you'd just rattle your jewelry.'
