This super early, Original Handbill was produced for The Rolling Stones, along with the Righteous Brothers, performing at the Memorial Auditorium in Sacramento on Monday, October 26, 1964. This is the FIRST TIME we’ve offered this rare specimen in our auction!


The concert was the first stop on the Rolling Stones Second US tour, and was actually re-scheduled (and occurred) on October 30th. The tour was supporting their 2nd studio album “12 x 5”, which was released a week prior on October 17th. 


The Stones "Now . . . No. 1 in England" and The Righteous Brothers “Just back from US Tour with The Beatles” are some of the historic quotes printed on this early Sacramento handbill. Vintage Rolling Stones material from their early days are highly sought after.


Visiting the United States in 1964 was a big deal for the Stones, and had a lasting impact on the start of their career. They recorded for two days at Chess Studios in Chicago. While there, they met many of their most important influences, including Muddy Waters. 


Those Chess sessions included their cover version of Bobby and Shirley Womack's "It's All Over Now" which would become their first No. 1 hit in the UK. By the end of the year, the Jagger/Richards original "Heart of Stone", with "What a Shame" as the B-side, single went to No. 19 on the US charts.
