Tony Booth: Original poster artist passes away

The Beatles Story team are saddened to report that Tony Booth, original poster artist for The Beatles has passed away, aged 83.

Tony helped to promote The Beatles' gigs in Liverpool during the early 1960s, working just round the corner from The Cavern Club and close to The Beatles manager Brian Epstein’s office in Whitechapel.

 

 

He produced hand-painted gig posters for many promoters, including Brian Epstein, Sam Leach, Allan Williams and Cavern Club DJ, Bob Wooler.

Although very few of Tony’s iconic posters have survived over the years, The Beatles Story feel very privileged to be home to an original as part of the Merseybeat room.

 

Tony held his first ever exhibition last year in Liverpool’s View Two Gallery, featuring recreations of his favourite posters, using the same materials that he used over fifty years ago. He was recently commissioned by the famous Cavern Club to produce posters for their 60th anniversary which takes place later this month.

 

 

Martin King, of The Beatles Story, said: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tony Booth. Our thoughts go out to his family at this sad time.”
