'
THE BEATLES & ROY ORBISON' ORIGINAL 16 PAGE TOUR PROGRAMME,
AUTOGRAPHED ON PHOTO SPREAD BIO PAGE BY THE BEATLES.
SIGNED DURING THE DURATION OF THE TOUR, MAY 18 TO JUNE 9, 1963.

ACCOMPANIED BY LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY FROM FRANK CAIAZZO.

SATURDAY MAY 18, 1963 WAS THE OPENING NIGHT OF THE BEATLES' THIRD NATIONWIDE PACKAGE TOUR IN AS MANY MONTHS. THIS TIME IT WAS WITH AMERICAN SENSATION ROY ORBISON, WHOM THE BEATLES MUCH ADMIRED. ROY INITIALLY BEGAN AS THE BILL-TOPPER, BUT THE BEATLES VERY QUICKLY, BY AUDIENCE DEMAND, ASSUMED THAT POSITION THROUGHOUT THE TOUR WHICH CONCLUDED ON JUNE 9. GEORGE HARRISON REMEMBERS: “WE SOON TOOK OVER AS TOP OF THE BILL. WE HAD TO COME ON AFTER ROY. THEY HAD A TRICK IN THOSE THEATRES WHERE THEY WOULD CLOSE SOME OF THE CURTAINS ON THE STAGE SO WE COULD SET UP BEHIND THEM WHILE THE OTHER BLOKE WAS STILL OUT THERE DOING HIS TUNES. I CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE HIS BACKING GROUP WAS, BUT ROY WOULD BE OUT THERE EVERY NIGHT AND AT THE END HE'D BE SINGING, 'SHE'S WALKING BACK TO ME, DO DO DO DO DA DO DO-DO...' AND THE AUDIENCE WOULD GO WILD. WE'D BE WAITING THERE AND HE'D DO ANOTHER BIG ENCORE AND WE'D BE THINKING, 'HOW ARE WE GOING TO FOLLOW THIS?' IT WAS REALLY SERIOUS STUFF.”

THE BEATLES' REPERTOIRE ON THIS TOUR COMPRISED ‘SOME OTHER GUY’, ‘DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A SECRET’, ‘LOVE ME DO’, ‘FROM ME TO YOU’, ‘PLEASE PLEASE ME’, ‘I SAW HER STANDING THERE’ AND ‘TWIST AND SHOUT’. GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS ANOTHER GROUP MANAGED BY BRIAN EPSTEIN ALSO PERFORMED ON THIS TOUR, WHO WOULD GO ON TO HAVE MANY HITS INCLUDING ‘DON'T LET THE SUN CATCH YOU CRYING’.
