Cavern Club: the final concert ticket

A rare concert ticket from The Beatles’ final appearance at Liverpool’s Cavern Club goes on display today at the award-winning ‘The Beatles Story’.

The ticket is dated 3rd August 1963, marking the band’s 292nd and final performance at the world-famous venue since making their debut at the club on 9th February 1961.

 

The Cavern Club played an important role during the band’s early development, but by the time they played their final show, just one month after they recorded She Loves You, The Beatles had outgrown the setting. From here on in, the Fab Four’s popularity could only be served by bigger venues.

Diane Glover of The Beatles Story said: "We are delighted to introduce this exciting piece of Cavern Club history into our exhibition. The ticket represents an important time in The Beatles’ career and recognises the crucial role that The Cavern Club played in the success of the band."

 

Tickets for the final show went on sale exclusively to Cavern Club members at 1:30pm on 21st July and sold out within just 30 minutes. The Beatles were joined on the bill that evening by The Mersey Beats, The Escorts, The Road Runners, The Sapphires and Johnny Ringo & The Colts.

The ticket joins a collection of other rare Cavern Club memorabilia from the early 60s, as well as the guitar which was used by George Harrison during the performance. The rare Australian Maton Mastersound guitar has been on display at The Beatles Story since July 2015 and was only on loan to George at the time due to his usual guitar, a Gibson Country Gentleman, being repaired.

 

The ticket will be on display within the attraction's Main Exhibition for the next three years. To buy tickets, please click here.
