A guaranteed original licensed poster from the 1970's of The Beatles, (inadvertently) celebrating their London Palladium show AND their Royal Command Performance, both in 1963.
Val Parnell's 'Sunday Night At The Palladium' TV show regularly attracted audiences of over 15 million. On Sunday, 13th October 1963, The Beatles topped the bill and were catapulted in to the national consciousness.
A few weeks later, on 4th November, the band made their only Royal Command Performance, not at the Palladium, but at London's Prince of Wales Theatre. It was during this gig that Lennon quipped "For our last number I’d like to ask your help. The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands. And the rest of you, if you’d just rattle your jewellery. We’d like to sing a song called ‘Twist And Shout’."
This poster was officially licensed by NEMS International (owned by the group's manager Brian Epstein) and it carries 'in plate' (so printed, not original) signatures from the band.
So, where was the photo taken, The Palladium or The Prince of Wales? The answer, neither. There is some conjecture. It may have been in Paris, perhaps Washington and was most likely taken in early 1964.
So, this is a poster with a few stories hidden behind the young faces of the fab four. As our photos show, it is in super condition and will look incredible framed and on the wall of any Beatles fan. We love it!
