    Description

    The Beatles 1964 Forest Hills Music Festival Poster. A one-of-a-kind poster advertising the Beatles' August 28 and 29, 1964 performances at the Forest Hills Music Festival held in New York. To date, the only other known poster for their 1964 summer tour of North America is one promoting the band's September 2 performance at the Philadelphia Convention Hall.
    The shows touted on this poster marked the Beatles' return to for the first time since their historic appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Both performances sold out, packing an impressive 16,000 fans into the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium.
    Also featured at the festival (and on the poster) were Barbara Streisand (appearing on Broadway in Funny Girl at the time), Joan Baez (who was accompanied on stage by a rising young star named Bob Dylan), Johnny Mathis, Harry Belafonte, and Trini Lopez and Count Basie (whose opening act was none other than Woody Allen).
    The 14" x 22" cardboard poster -- the first we've ever had the chance to offer -- is in Very Fine condition with some mild toning and surface wear, mild wear to the edges and corners, and some areas of water staining.
