George Harrison and Ringo Starr signed original concert programme from the Chris Montez and Tommy Roe tour on March 10th, 1963.

An original concert programme from the Chris Montez and Tommy Roe tour which also featured The Beatles. The programme has been signed in a blue pen on the reverse by George Harrison and Ringo Starr. George has added ‘To Josephine Love From’ and ‘xxx’ before and after his signature. The signatures were obtained in Birmingham on the 10th March 1963. It comes with a detailed letter from the original recipient detailing how the signatures were obtained. The programme measures 20cm x 26cm (8 inches x 10.25 inches)

The 10th of March 1963 was the second date of The Beatles' UK tour with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez and took them to the Hippodrome Theatre in Birmingham.

Although The Beatles hadn't been placed on the top of the bill prior to the tour, the audience reaction after the first night in London ensured that the group closed the show on this and all subsequent tour dates.

The Beatles performed a six-song setlist throughout this tour: Love Me Do, Misery, A Taste Of Honey, Do You Want To Know A Secret, Please Please Me and I Saw Her Standing There.

I just got the Tracks loa in the mail along with the original letter from the lady who obtained them and it was really amazing to read her experience of talking to The Beatles. Apparently Paul had also signed the programme too, but has faded off. I believe I can still see pen indentations on the reverse side of his image where he signed. That is super cool to me that it was touched by the the three of them!

And you are young enough that it should be a good investment over time !
