  DESCRIPTION
(ACTUAL SCANS)

THE BEATLES’ MOST MOMENTOUS LIVE PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE AT SHEA STADIUM, THE HOME OF THE NEW YORK METS BASEBALL TEAM. SEEN BY 55,600 FANS, IT CREATED A NEW WORLD RECORD FOR A POP CONCERT IN TERMS OF ATTENDANCE AND GROSS REVENUE. THE BEATLES’ SHARE OF THE $304,000 BOX OFFICE TAKINGS WAS ALSO A RECORD - $160,000.

THE GROUP TRAVELED BY LIMOUSINE FROM THE WARWICK HOTEL TO A WATERFRONT HELIPORT, FLEW FROM THERE OVER NEW YORK CITY TO THE ROOF OF THE WORLD’S FAIR BUILDING AND MADE THE FINAL 100-YARD JOURNEY INTO SHEA STADIUM IN A WELLS FARGO ARMORED TRUCK. THEY SPRINTED THROUGH A TUNNEL, OUT INTO A DEAFENING WALL OF SCREAMS AND ONTO THE STAGE POSITIONED AT SECOND BASE AT 9:16PM. THE OPENING SUPPORTING ACTS IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE WERE BRENDA HOLLOWAY AND THE KING CURTIS BAND, CANNIBAL & THE HEADHUNTERS, SOUNDS INCORPORATED, AND THE YOUNG RASCALS.

FROM THIS INFAMOUS VERY FIRST BEATLES' OPEN-AIR STADIUM SOLD-OUT SHOW, WE ARE PROUD TO OFFER A GORGEOUS ORIGINAL FULL, UNUSED CONCERT TICKET.

THE "MEZZANINE RESERVED" TICKET IS BLUE IN COLOR, WITH THE FAMOUS BLUE PRINT INCLUDING THE BEATLES GRAPHIC 1965 PHOTO, SECTION 19, ROW K, SEAT 5, $5.65 PRICE LOCATION. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY rare VARIANT OF THE TICKET BEING THE MEZZANINE RESERVED VERSION. As of this date, there are less than 20 known (18 to be exact) full unused tickets from the 1965 Shea concert. Of those that exist, there are ONLY 5 known blue full Mezzanine tickets . The "upper reserved" version has about 4 known examples. The yellow Field Level Box is the most common with 8 known.
