    The Beatles Hippodrome Theatre, Ohio Telecast Concert Ticket (March 14, 1964). The Beatles played their first American full concert February 11th,1964. About a month later, in March, the CBS filming of the Beatles live D.C. show together with separate footage of performances by the Beach Boys and Lesley Gore was shown in selected movie theaters in the U.S. and Canada as a closed circuit concert. Billed as "The Beatles Direct From Their First American Concert" The total audience for the closed circuit broad casts was expected to exceed 500,000. This is a detached ticket from the telecast in Cleveland, OH. In plastic and measuring approx: 4" by 2 ¼" if it were a complete ticket. This broadcast was apparently the first use of closed circuit broadcasting for a rock concert. Before this show it is believed that this technology was used only for championship boxing. Both parts of the ticket show some wear, tears on the back and writing on the front with the date underlined in pen. Not many survived so get this rare example here. From The Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
