I feel like there hasn't been a post about any of the tour booklets. I reckon I haven't had enough to start a thread on til now, when I saw the BB perform in NJ, I bought the autographed one, well worth it! But I felt that there should have been some essays or something to go along with it. I also have the BWPS tour book which has GREAT essays and a great timeline and some of the best color pictures of the Smile era. I also recently picked up a tour booklet from the 15 Big Ones era (which is pictured in the newest booklet with two girls and the 15BO album on the beach, wow, that'll never happen again, two girls, sitting with the 15 Big Ones album between them). With it also being an anniversary tour, it contained some pics from the past. And finally, I have my priced first treasure, the tour booklet from 1966, it is also pictured in the recent tour booklet (white background/blue lettering/pic of the guys without Brian). My parents picked it up at a yardsale/flee market type thing and the label just said "Beach Boys Magazine $10.00"....so glad they picked it up. A lot of great pics and an ad for the "new" Best of the Beach Boys album (that released right after Pet Sounds). Some of the pics, I've not seen in any other books, one with Mike in a bathtub reading Playboy and some other single portraits I've not seen anywhere. If I had a camera, I'd take a pic of them, but being as I don't have one, sorry.

So, are they worth alot?

This is how much I paid for mine:

50th Anniversery (autographed)- $100
BWPS-20$
15 Big Ones- 25$
1966-10$

I'd love to get my hands on any others, when did they start putting tour books on sale?

I got one for the Australia Tour in 93 and have never bought any for any artist since. The same pictures available elsewhere and nowdays online, advertising for upcoming artists, hotels, airlines etc.

I'd pay $100 for a signed one this year but only for the signatures, not the content.

My favorite has always been the 25th Anniversay book from 1987, the one with the big Sunkist logo on the back. I got that one at my first Beach Boys concert. I can't believe I have been a fan for 27 years now, since I first heard Getcha Back in 1985.  I can't be that old...
