A seldom-offered sixteen page book measuring approx: 10.5" x 7" for their sixth (and final) British tour with the Moody Blues and the Paramounts the forerunner to Procol Harum, December 3-12, 1965.

Most tour programs were signed on the inside cover. The combination of these signatures and the Famous Cartoon images Wow! what more could you want?

    According to the handwritten note accompanied with this lot, the original owner received these signatures on Saturday, December 4, 1965 backstage at the show in Newcastle City Hall. "My dad's uncle by marriage, Bob King, was working for Arthur Howes. My grandma gave him my ticket number and he took me back stage to meet the Beatles. They signed the autographs in front of me while watching television." Paul McCartney and George Harrison signed in blue ink. John Lennon and Ringo Starr signed in purple ink.

    Stunning and Beautiful clean signatures. The appeal of this rarity is obvious so do not let this item get away. In Very Good condition with spine wear, creasing and fold marks, along with corner and edge creasing.
