1963 The Beatles concert poster (Adelphi Cinema, Slough). The Beatles third UK tour began at the Adelphi Cinema in Slough, Buckinghamshire on May 18, 1963. Also on the tour were Roy Orbison, Gerry and the Pacemakers, David Macbeth, Louise Cordet, Tony Marsh, Terry Young Six, Erkey Grant and Ian Crawford. Although Orbison had originally been top of the bill, he was soon demoted to second place on the back of the extraordinary audience reaction to The Beatles. Offered here is a rare original concert poster from the Adelphi, measuring 10 x 12.75 inches. Printed by Hastings Printing Company, the card poster has two holes punched along the top border (as issued) from which string was used to hang it. Fabulous, bright colors and super cool graphics, including head shots of Gerry Marsden, Roy Orbison and most importantly, George, John, Paul and Ringo! The poster is in VG-EX condition with minor edge and corner creases, and a 2 cm tear running from the top edge, down through one of the holes. The poster has safely kept in the possession of a former employee of the Adelphi Cinema, until they recently decided to part with it. A wonderful Beatles display piece, that would light up any wall.
