Item 5015 - Beatles 1965 Ed Sullivan Show Handwritten Set List Catalog 571 (Dec 2019)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $3,745.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Handwritten set list by Brian Epstein's personal assistant Wendy Hanson for the Beatles' Ed Sullivan Show appearance recorded on August 14, 1965, one page, 4.25 x 6, Waldorf Astoria stationery, in full: "I feel fine, I'm down, Ringo - Act Naturally / Ticket to ride, Yesterday, Help, Ed Sullivan." The set list would have been written down by Wendy Hanson during a phone conversation between a member of The Beatles—who were staying at the Warwick Hotel in New York—so that the information could be given to a member of the production for the Ed Sullivan Show. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter from Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn, in part: "I have been asked to authenticate this original 1965 note handwritten on the stationery of the Hotel Waldorf-Astoria, New York City. It was written by Wendy Hanson - PA to Beatles manager Brian Epstein - who was accompanying them on the Beatles’ August 1965 North American concert tour. The first engagement - on August 14 1965, the night before the Beatles played at Shea Stadium - was a video recording for The Ed Sullivan Show, and this document gives their six-song set-list, dictated by the Beatles and taken down by Wendy as their aide-memoire."
