The 8.5 x 11 contract for the Beatles was sent back and forth from NY to England to make sure that all the provisions were correct.  Some corrections needed to be made in regards to the Beatles “Billing” for the show, so they had to VOID this contract once the provisions were corrected.  Hence, the reason for the word “Void” writtein in the right hand corner in blue ball point.

The Beatles were paid $3,500 to be divided among the four band members, plus airfare.  Not a bad deal for the Fab Four performance.
