From the time The Beatles arrived in America in February 1964, their lives were everything but their own. Amazingly, with what seemed to be an endless string of appearances, press conferences, interviews, and other engagements, their craft didn’t suffer. Their lyrics continued to improve, becoming more sophisticated, while their music became more inventive and complicated. Their recording techniques pushed the technology of the time, far beyond its bounds. However, the complexity of their sound became problematic if they hoped to continue playing before live audiences. For one, the audience did so much screaming while they were on stage that at some shows they were inaudible. Secondly, by 1966 they were employing session musicians to accompany them on certain tracks. Also, with the amount of overdubs used on each track, they couldn’t effectively reproduce the sounds that appeared on their records. These issues came to a head at the completion of “Revolver.” One of John’s best songs on that album was “I’m Only Sleeping.” The key element to that particular song was the backward guitar parts, a real limitation that was impossible to reproduce in a live performance. Paul’s “Eleanor Rigby” would require a string quartet, another limitation. “Yellow Submarine” would require a sound effects bank, which didn’t exist at the time. “Tomorrow Never Knows” was completely out of the question. All of these limitations were more than frustrating for The Beatles. After producing their most progressive album to date, they embarked on another world tour. The 1966 tour was grueling for them. They were under such tight security in Japan, they felt like prisoners in a foreign land. In the Philippines, they snubbed the president and his wife and were physically removed from the country. After this, The Beatles decided that they were going to stop performing live and concentrate on their music. Since they were committed to complete the tour, they continued on to America. The final stop for the tour was San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, on August 29, 1966. The Beatles performed the following songs on that cold night: “Rock and Roll Music”, “She’s A Woman”, “If I Needed Someone”, “Day Tripper”, “Baby’s In Black”, “I Feel Fine”, “Yesterday”, “I Wanna Be Your Man”, “Nowhere Man”, “Paperback Writer”, and “Long Tall Sally.” After they finished playing, they took one last bow, and were whisked away in an armored car, which had been standing by throughout the concert. Little did anyone suspect they had just witnessed an end of an era! Our offering here is a beauty of an actual unused ticket from that historic night. The ticket is not the more common “green bar” ticket. It is, in fact, the rarer “red bar” issued to the lower level at Candlestick. This fine full ticket received PSA grade NM 7.
