The Beatles A cablegram from Pat Boone to Brian Epstein regarding the Beatles attendance at a party in Las Vegas organised by the singer,
Boone had organised a party at which some lucky contest winners would meet the group. He had purchased 100 tickets to their show in Las Vegas during their summer US tour to give away as prizes and Epstein had obviously initially refused to let the Beatles participate. Boone's message points out that the group might earn as much as $50,000 from merchandise sales and would they not be able to spare just an hour? Epstein's note seems to indicate a change of mind.
