Rare Signed Ticket

By the time of our auction this rare ticket will be just over 50 years old! 

In 1962, a few months before the release of Love Me Do, The Beatles appeared on the bill in Southport with Joe Brown as the headline act. Tickets for Beatles shows early in their career are very rare and few and far between. Tickets tended to be thrown away or collected on the door. This ticket is used, as it has had a corner torn off, probably on entry to the venue.

The ticket is also signed on the reverse by Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Both have added the dedication to Jo.
