I found an extremely interesting story here. I will try to give you the "Reader's Digest" version if you will.
In October of 1964 a 13 year old girl from Newton, Massachusetts saw the band, The Animals in concert in Boston. Not just that, Elizabeth Freedman actually got to meet a few members the band. This meeting with the British band and her love of the Beatles, sparked a curiosity in Elizabeth about London and the music scene there. Her Grandmother lived in Britain and she figured that she would meet up with her.
So she took $400 out of the bank, got a passport and a smallpox shot and then told her friend that she was going on an exciting adventure. On October 17, 1964, dressed in black, Elizabeth left a note for her mother saying that she was going to the movies and then took a plane from Boston to London.
Once she made it to London, she found herself in a world of music. She saw all sorts of concerts including Cilla Black, Petula Clark and Cliff Richards. She was hoping to get to see her favorite group, the Beatles in the concert. This would have been an exciting adventure had Elizabeth been five years older. However, she was a 13 year old runaway with a widowed mother back home in Boston that was worried sick about her little girl. This mother figured that her daughter had ran off to England and began a search for her. She flew over to England and worked with the Scotland Yard to locate the teenager. George Martin saw the news in the paper and announced that if Elizabeth came forward or was found, he would see to it that she could meet the Beatles. Meanwhile Elizabeth was enjoying dances and shopping and tourist attractions in and around London. She was living with an older girl at a boarding house. But her photo and name were in the papers and finally one of the people she had gone out with turned her in.
George Martin kept his word and on November 1, 1964 Elizabeth Freedman met all four Beatles backstage at the Finbury Park Astoria. They signed two albums for her: With the Beatles and A Hard Day's Night. She also got a ticket to see them in concert..
After it was all over with, the press wanted to speak with her. She did not directly answer their questions. Just simply yes and no answers. Although when she was asked what the Beatles were like, she said "terrific" She did admit that running away from home was a selfish thing for her to do. She said that she was glad to see her mother, but at no point during her time in England did she feel scared. Her mother told the press that she was going to be grounded for a long time.
The autograph's album, photographs, ticket stub and newspaper articles are being sold for $60,000.
