BBy the summer of 1966, the Beatles could no longer stand the emotional, physical, and creative strain of the lengthy tours that they had been on for the previous three years. On August 29, 1966, the Beatles played their last concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.
Designed by Wes Wilson, this is the only Beatles poster done in a psychedelic fashion. The print run was small - 300 according to Wes Wilson and most of the surviving copies have been well used. It is doubtful that more than 50 originals of this poster exist in any condition and anything approaching Near Mint is quite rare. In top condition, they command prices in the high four figures. Authentication of this poster by an expert is a must if you are considering purcahsing one.
Due to the popularity of this poster, it has been reprinted once and bootlegged several times. Beware and only purchase this poster from a reputable source.
The original poster is printed on white stock and measures approximately 17" x 24 1/8".
