The tickets shown are from the final show of their 1964 tour, a "benefit" show performed on September 20th at New York's Paramount Theater. The white ticket is rather ironic in that the admission price on the ticket, $1.50, is the lowest of all Beatles U.S. concerts. The reality, however, was quite the opposite, as tickets were sold for $5.00 to $100 per seat since it was a 'benefit show' for The United Cerebral Palsey & The Retarded Infants Services charities. 380 $50 seats were sold and 225 more went for for $100.00. In all, the concert raised $75,000.
The Beatles performed for free and all proceeds went to the causes. This was their only U.S. benefit show of their 3 tours. A capacity crowd of 3,682 people attended the show and these tickets are among the rarest around. A custom program was also printed.
