    Rolling Stones / Yardbirds w/Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck 1966 U.K. Handbill.
    Original paper "tour blank" concert flyer for the Stones' 1966 tour of Britain with a very strong undercard. This particular sample is from the ABC Theatre in Ardwick, England on Wednesday, September 28, 1966.

    This was a fairly short jaunt for the Stones, a 12-date, big-city tour that spanned just a little over two weeks. And boy, what support they had on the tour: Ike & Tina Turner at their incendiary best, and the Yardbirds at a time when both Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck were in the band. Nice!

    The Stones were touring off their Aftermath album and most recent hit, "Mother's Little Helper." During the tour, Decca released their brand new single: "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?"

    In fact, according to bassist Bill Wyman's coffee-table book Rolling With The Stones, the exact set list for this tour: "Paint It, Black," "Under My Thumb," "Get Off of My Cloud," "Lady Jane," "Not Fade Away," "The Last Time," "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby," "Satisfaction," "19th Nervous Breakdown," "Mother's Little Helper," "Stupid Girl," "Flight 505," "Out of Time," "It's Not Easy," "I'm Alright" and "Time Is On My Side." Thank you, Bill!

    As for the Yardbirds, it was a great time to see them, and not just for the presence of the two guitar gods. Their last five hits, at least in America, had been: "For Your Love," "Heart Full of Soul," "I'm a Man," "Shapes of Things" and "Over Under Sideways Down."

    Peter Jay & the Jaywalkers (by now called the New Jay Walkers) were a British instrumental beat group that toured with both the Beatles and the Stones, and appeared on the TV shows Ready Steady Go! and Thank Your Lucky Stars. But after this very tour, the band called it a day for good.

    And don't be fooled by all those "opening acts" on the undercard after Peter Jay... four of the names were just part of Ike & Tina's revue, and the fifth, Ray Cameron, was the MC/comedian.

    The main portion of this handbill, giving all the talent, was printed ahead of time in a fairly large amount. Then the far-right-hand 'booking form' was developed for each stop on the tour, printed on both sides (see pictures), and distributed to that local promoter for dissemination throughout the town. It's a nice bonus when you see this type of flyer with the booking form still intact and not written on. Item measures 8.9" x 5.7" and is graded in beautiful, crisp Mint condition, printed before the show by the Hastings Printing Company. COA from Heritage Auctions.
