Very few unused tickets have surfaced so far for any of the Seattle concerts. Shown at the top of this page are two full tickets for the sold-out evening show, a full ticket for the afternoon show and stubs for both shows.

The green loge evening ticket surfaced in 2000, with an interesting story behind the discovery. The owner had originally purchased two tickets for the evening performance in early August of 1966. Treating them like gold, he hid them so they would not get lost or stolen. But on the day of the show he discovered he had forgotten where he had hidden them. In desperation to impress his new date, he rushed her to the coliseum early to see if they could find any tickets for the sold out concert. He was lucky enough to find someone wanting to sell a pair of tickets and they attended the show...

In 1997, some thirty one years later, he was going through some old books at home and to his astonishing surprise, stored between the pages of one of them was an envelope from the Bon MarChe ticket office with his two lost tickets inside! Needless to say, the tickets were in pristine condition, having been so perfectly stored since 1966.

For the concerts thirtieth anniversary in August of 1996, Seattle's KOMO-TV ran a 30 minute special called "The Beatles In Seattle". The show featured many rare clips from the Beatles' appearances in Seattle and Portland, as well as current interviews with fans that appeared in some of the original 1966 footage. As part of the promotional campaign, frisbees and videotapes (shown above)of the special were made in limited quantities. Below, fans buying souvenirs at the concert and the Beatles arriving at the airport.
