1964 Caravan of Stars - Winter Tour

The Winter Tour of the 1964 Caravan began in mid-November and continued through 23 cities.  This itinerary was the only one published in advance.  These listings were taken from Billboard magazine.  Of note was the second appearance by the Supremes on the Caravan, this time as the headliners.  Brian Hyland is also aboard for his fourth leg, making him the veteran among Caravan talent.
