Today’s Find: The Beatles Last Concert Ticket

August 29th, 1966. Beatles Last Concert Ticket

Very Excited about this! What you see here is the ticket to the final rock concert the Beatles ever performed in America, August 29th, 1966 (Candlestick Park San Francisco). I’m a big Beatles fan so I’m not sure I want to sell it!

This little ticket represents the end of one era in Beatles lore and the start of another. Their music was getting too sophisticated to play in a live concert arena and they decided they had enough of the Beatlemania craziness.  The lads wanted to spend more time in the studio to hone their craft and become better musicians. Their decision paid off. The very next double single the Beatles released was Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane.

From the Beatles Bible, last recording of the Beatles performing in America

Coincidentally, the woman who sold us this ticket found it while rummaging through some old books left outside of a house destined for the local landfill. With a little help from us, she got the ticket authenticated by PSA/DNA. It is in beautiful condition and a real keeper.
