Artifact: Beatles New York Paramount Theatre charity benefit Concert Program 1964

Up for big at Heritage Auctions.

Details:

An Evening With The Beatles is the title on this 6" x 10" four page program. On September 20, 1964, the Beatles waived their fees and played this concert benefiting United Cerebral Palsy of New York City, Inc. and Retarded Infants Services, Inc. Ed Sullivan, Steve Lawrence, and Eydie Gorme were the hosts. Tickets sold for as much as $100 but there were only 3682 seats in the theatre. It was a sellout, of course, and there are reports of 100,000 fans outside with 200 of New York's finest keeping them under control. This was the last concert date of their first full American tour. Programs are rare. Flattened folds and light uneven toning, overall Very Good.
