Description

    Beatles New York Paramount Theatre Charity Benefit Concert Program (1964). An Evening With The Beatles is the title on this 6" x 10" four page program. On September 20, 1964, the Beatles waived their fees and played this concert benefiting United Cerebral Palsy of New York City, Inc. and Retarded Infants Services, Inc. Ed Sullivan, Steve Lawrence, and Eydie Gorme were the hosts. Tickets sold for as much as $100 but there were only 3682 seats in the theatre. It was a sellout, of course, and there are reports of 100,000 fans outside with 200 of New York's finest keeping them under control. This was the last concert date of their first full American tour. Programs are rare. Flattened folds and light uneven toning, overall very good.

    PROVENANCE:
    This lot was consigned directly to Heritage Auctions by the former Emily Cole who was a production secretary on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in New York City throughout the 1960s. In this capacity, she had a varied job both "behind the scenes" during the week as well as in front of the camera before taping began, being a "color girl" - a duty that required her to stand in front of the camera so that the colors could be adjusted before the show. Emily was present at the now-historic taping of the Beatles on "The Sullivan Show" in February, 1964, and she also attended this function -- talk about being in the right place at the right time!
