Vintage tour program photo from the band’s 1963 tour with Chris Montez and Tommy Roe, 8 x 10.25, signed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, “George Harrison,” “Ringo Starr,” “Paul McCartney,” and” John Lennon.” Program is also signed by other artists on the tour, including Chris Montez, Tommy Roe, Debbie Lee, and the Viscounts. In very good to fine condition, with a central vertical fold, scattered creases to covers, and Harrison signing over a previously unsuccessful first attempt. Accompanied by letters of authenticity and appraisal from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, dating the signatures to March of 1963. Also accompanied by letters of authenticity from Perry Cox and Tracks. This tour was originally to be headlined by Montez and Roe, as indicated by the Beatles being listed 5th in the program. However after the first night of the tour on March 9, 1963, the Beatles became the headliners. This was due to ‘Please Please Me’ spending its third week at number one and though the release of the debut album of the same name was still two weeks away, it was clear that Beatlemania had taken hold. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
