CONCERT EPHEMERA

SEEING THE BEATLES PERFORM LIVE IN PERSON WAS UNDOUBTEDLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF ANY FAN'S INVOLVEMENT WITH THE GROUP DURING THE YEARS THEY WERE TOURING. MEMENTOS OF THE BEATLES' CONCERTS ARE A CHALLENGE FOR THE COLLECTOR TO OBTAIN, DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY WERE OF A FRAGILE NATURE (USUALLY PAPER) AVAILABLE FOR ONLY A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, AND USUALLY AVAILABLE ONLY IN THE LOCALITY WHERE THE CONCERT TOOK PLACE. THESE ITEMS CAN MAKE FOR A VERY INTERESTING COLLECTION IN A MINIMUM OF SPACE. THE BEATLES PERFORMED HUNDREDS OF TIMES BEFORE AUDIENCES, SO THE VARIETY OF MATERIAL AVAILABLE IS ENDLESS AND CAN BE A LIFETIME PURSUIT.

OF INTEREST TO MOST NORTH AMERICAN COLLECTORS ARE THE MANY VARIED TICKETS PRODUCED FOR THE BEATLES' TOURS HERE WHERE THE BEATLES PLAYED 72 SHOWS AT 52 DIFFERENT SITES BETWEEN FEBRUARY 11, 1964 AND AUGUST 29, 1966.
