    Beatles Tower Ballroom Show Ticket, 1961. After a successful stint in Germany in 1960, the Beatles returned to the U.K. and were heavily promoted by Sam Leach, playing 49 occasions on various Liverpool stages over the subsequent year and a half, including the famed "Operation Big Beat in 1961," at which 3,000 people saw them perform along with Rory Storm and The Hurricanes, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and others. This is a ticket to one of those shows, a December 15, 1961, performance at the Tower Ballroom in New Brighton, where the group performed with Storm, Derry and the Seniors, and Cass and the Cassanovas. Storm's drummer at the time was none other than Ringo Starr, who would replace Pete Best and become a Beatle just a few months down the road. The ticket is in Very Good condition, with light wear to the edges, blunted corners, and moderate surface creasing.
