    Beatles Unused Memphis Concert Ticket (1966). A 4" x 1.5" black and red on off-white printed ticket, issued for the Beatles 8:30 PM concert at the Mid-South Coliseum on August 19, 1966, their only appearance in Elvis Presley's hometown. The two performances that day were almost cancelled due to controversy over Lennon's "more popular than Jesus" comments. The Memphis city council actually voted to cancel the shows, the Ku Klux Klan promised vengeance, and several groups staged Beatle record-burnings. The shows did go on, though, with only one scare when someone threw a lit firecracker on stage during the afternoon show. Their set started with "Rock and Roll Music" and ended with "Long Tall Sally". Light cellophane tape stains on the verso, otherwise near mint.
