The Beatles – The Artist
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the group were integral to pop music’s evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s. They often incorporated classical elements, older pop forms and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways, and later experimented with several musical styles ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock. As the members continued to draw influences from a variety of cultural sources, their musical and lyrical sophistication grew, and they were seen as an embodiment of the era’s sociocultural movements. The Beatles are the best-selling band in history, with estimated sales of over 800 million records worldwide. They disbanded in 1970 and embarked on successful solo projects.
Ticket To Ride – The Song
Ticket To Ride is a song by the English rock group the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Issued as a single in April 1965, it became the Beatles’ seventh consecutive number 1 hit in the United Kingdom and their third consecutive number 1 hit in the United States, and similarly topped national charts in Canada, Australia and Ireland. The song was included on their 1965 album Help! Recorded at EMI Studios in London in February that year, the track marked a progression in the Beatles’ work through the incorporation of drone and harder-sounding instrumentation relative to their previous releases. “Ticket to Ride” appears in a sequence in the Beatles’ second feature film, Help!, directed by Richard Lester. The song loosely tells the story of a grieving man, whose girlfriend has purchased a ticket to go away and leave him and he doesn’t want her to go.
Vintage Transportation Ticket – The Shape
Vintage admission and fare tickets were originally wound on a roll and dispensed at the time of purchase and torn off the roll. Some tickets had an additional perforated edge that was torn off when entering the event or vehicle allowing the holder to retain proof of purchase and the vendor to keep tally of who had entered or was on board.
