Beatles concert list is auctioned in Derbyshire

Beatles set list
The Beatles often changed the songs they played at concerts

A Beatles set list, handwritten by John Lennon, and Gandhi's signature have been auctioned in Derby.

The note of eight song titles from the 1964 World Tour concert fetched £4,200, which rises to more than £5,000 with commission, at Bamfords Auctioneers.

The list includes the songs Saw Her Stand, Beethoven, All My Loving, She Loves You and From Me To You.

The autograph, which was given to the driver who took Gandhi to address MPs in the House of Commons, made £1,350.

Sheila Anderson picked up Gandhi and assistant Madeleine Slade in 1931 and asked for his signature, which he gave her on House of Commons notepaper.

A spokesman for Bamfords said the track list was typical of the Beatles, who would often change the songs they played from venue to venue.
