The Finest Beatles Signed 1963 "The Beatles & Roy Orbison" Tour Program with Incredible Provenance & Signatures!

1963 would be a crucial transitional year for the boys from Liverpool. With The Beatles gaining momentum in the U.K., Brian Epstein would sign the band up for the largest gig to date, a sixteen-day tour around England with one of the largest stars at that time, Roy Orbison. To put into context how important this tour was for The Beatles, Orbison would actually start out as the headline act, but due to overwhelming demand for the audience, The Beatles would finish the tour as the lead act. For many in the U.K., this would be the first time they paid any attention to the band that quickly became a national phenomenon by year's end, largely due to the Orbison tour.

Given the importance of this tour in music history, having a Beatles-signed Roy Orbison tour program alone - let alone one signed by the Beatles AND Orbison himself - is similar to the "Holy grail" of signed Beatles albums, "Sgt. Pepper". This is an unbelievably rare collectible, and the autographs of The Beatles have rendered a stellar MINT 9 and Roy Orbison's autograph checks in with a perfect GEM MINT 10 grade from PSA/DNA! The Beatles all signed on the same page of the program next to their picture, while Orbison signed on the next page, adjacent to his own picture.

The program itself is exceptionally well preserved, and according to Tracks UK, it's the finest example that they've ever seen. It is extremely rare to find this program signed by all four Beatles as well as Roy Orbison. A combination of the importance of this tour, external & internal condition of the program & the quality of the signatures makes this a true gem for any music collector/historian. A full letter of authenticity & grading has been provided by PSA/DNA along with a detailed Letter of Authenticity from Tracks Ltd.
