Offered is a pristine FULL ticket for The Beatles August 20, 1965 concert at Chicago's White Sox Park. The ticket is priced $4.50 and is for a seat in the "Upper Deck Loge" section. The Beatles performed two shows at 3pm and 8pm. The first concert was seen by 25,000, and the second, for which this ticket was made, drew a crowd of 37,000. They arrived at Chicago’s Midway Airport at 3am, having flown from Houston, Texas. Local police, wary of the trouble caused by crowds in Houston, had refused to allow them to land at O’Hare International Airport. The Beatles’ setlist featured 12 songs: the group’s short version of ‘Twist And Shout’, followed by ‘She’s A Woman’, ‘I Feel Fine’, ‘Dizzy Miss Lizzy’, ‘Ticket To Ride’, ‘Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby’, ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘Baby’s In Black’, ‘Act Naturally’, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’, ‘Help!’ and ‘I’m Down’. The Beatles were paid $155,000 for the two performances. The other acts on the bill were Brenda Holloway and the King Curtis Band, Cannibal & The Headhunters, and Sounds Incorporated. The ticket measures 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches and presents with absolutely no wear. Only the most mild corner wear and a few small chips in a few letters in the printing keep this from a MINT rating. Conservatively grades Near Mint to Mint.
