This souvenir booklet was sold for $1.25 during the Beatles's second US tour, 15-31 August 1965. The tour opened with their largest ever live concert, to an audience of 55,000 at New York's Shea Stadium, and closed in San Francisco. The highlight for the band came on 27 August when, on one of their few nights off, they met Elvis Presley at his home in Bel Air.
