Photos Of Beatles You’ve Never Seen

On Feb 11, 1964, Beatles played their first U.S.concert at the Washington Coliseum, just two days after their debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

An enterprising 18-year-old photographervMike Mitchell was there to capture every moment of the concert, from just feet away or even jumping onto the stage for the group’s pre-concert press call.

These photographs have never been published before.

Today (July 20), after nearly 50 years, Christie’s auction house will sell 50 silver gelatin prints that the photographer, Mike Mitchell, made from the negatives. The images, plus photos from another Beatles’ concert, are estimated to fetch a total of $100,000.
