DescriptionBeatles Hong Kong Princess Theatre Concert Ticket Stub (1964). A 4.125" x 3.375" white paper stub for a June 10, 1964, concert at 9:30 PM (one of two performances), presented by "Associated Artistes International in Cooperation with Harry Odell Productions Ltd." A "Stalls" ticket with "A22" written in pencil and bearing a Harry Odell rubber stamp. This was the lowest priced seat at $20.60 HKD; the highest priced ticket was $75 HKD. These outlandish prices prevented most young Beatle fans from attending and the promoters didn't come close to selling out, thus giving free passes to military personnel whose khaki uniforms were dominant in the sparse crowds. Sponsored by Omega Watches which has an advertisement on the verso. Rare, the first Heritage has offered. Very Fine condition.
This date was on the first Beatles World Tour, sandwiched between European dates and their trip to Australia and New Zealand. As Ringo was in the hospital with tonsillitis, Jimmy Nichol was the drummer for this date and several others. In The Beatles Anthology, Paul commented on this concert: "As for the show, Hong Kong was a slightly flat performance in a smallish place. They behaved themselves, and it looked like a khaki audience. We played but I don't think we enjoyed the show too much - although at least we could be heard." (page 139).
