    Beatles and Roy Orbison UK Tour Concert Ticket Stubs (Three) with Tour Book (UK, May-June, 1963). From this landmark tour, we offer three rare ticket stubs, as follows:
    May 30 Manchester Odeon Theatre: A 1.5" x 2.5" pink paper stub for the 8:45 second performance in the Rear Stalls, BB20, price 7/6. Interestingly, future press officer was tasked with reviewing this night's concert for the Daily Express. He was expected to write a critical review of this teen fad but instead, wrote glowing praise of the band and concert. Shortly thereafter, he was invited to meet the lads thus beginning a long, important relationship. Stub somewhat crinkled, Good condition.
    June 1 Tooting (London) Granada Cinema: A 2.5" x 2.625" green paper stub for the 9:00 second performance in the Stalls, No AA17, price 6/6. This was their only performance at this ornate theatre. Top right corner torn off, fold, overall Fair condition.
    June 9 Blackburn King George's Hall: A 2" x 3.25" yellow paper stub for the 8:00 second house in the Stalls, S4, price 7/6. This was the last night of this tour. Even though they played in East Lancashire several times, this was their only Blackburn appearance. One's thoughts are likely drawn to the famous line in "A Day in the Life": "Four thousand holes in Blackburn Lancashire." One light fold at center and lower right corner, Fine condition.
    Tour Programme: Also included is an original 8" x 10.25" sixteen-page tour programme printed on slick paper and containing photos and biographies of the tour's acts. This series of shows in England and Scotland started on May 18 with Roy Orbison the planned headliner but due to the Beatles soaring popularity, Orbison consented to share top billing. Wear and light crinkling, Very Good.
