Program from the Beatles’ six-night engagement at the Winter Gardens Margate, 5.75 x 9, two pages, featuring a charming cover image of the band looking out an open door. Signed on the cover in blue ballpoint next to their images, “Paul McCartney,” and “John Lennon,” and in black ballpoint “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr.” In fine condition, with old tape remnants to two corners of cover, Harrison’s signature just a shade light due to decreased ink flow, and expected light handling wear. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who states, “Beatles tour programs signed on the front by the band are quite rare and desirable.” The band played twelve shows over six consecutive nights at the Winter Gardens, with opening acts including the Dakotas, Billy J. Kramer, and comedian Derek Roy. Their nine-song setlist included ‘Please Please Me,’ ‘I Saw Her Standing There,’ and the energetic closing track, ‘Twist and Shout.’ Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
