Description

    Beatles/Roy Orbison Ticket Group. An almost complete run of tickets dating from May 24-June 3, 1963 (only a stub from the May 29 performance at the Rialto Theatre in York is missing) from the Boys' package tour with Roy Orbison. Orbison headlined the tour and became lifelong friends with the band, particularly with John Lennon and George Harrison (the latter of whom he would record with as part of the Traveling Wilburys 25 years later). During the tour, Orbison encouraged the Beatles to come to the United States; when they finally decided to give it a go, they asked Orbison to manage their first U.S. tour, but his own schedule forced him to turn down what was to become an astounding success. This set of 13 used tickets includes stubs from such performances as their May 26 show at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool, at the time their first home-town appearance in several weeks; and their May 30 show at the Odeon, which was reviewed by future Apple Records press officer Derek Taylor; as well as tickets for each of the May 27, 31, and June 3 "two House" performances. Overall condition ranges from Very Good with moderate wear to Excellent, with most falling in the Very Fine category. It's rare for such a run to be offered as one item, and this is an opportunity not to be missed.
