Exhibit Featuring Rare Beatles Concert Photos from 1964 Opening in New Mexico
-- On February 11, 1964, two days after appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Beatles performed their first U.S. concert, headlining the Washington Coliseum in Washington, D.C. Photographer Mike Mitchell was there -- and images he snapped of the Fab Four that historic night will be part of an exhibit that opens August 2 at the David Anthony Fine Art gallery in Taos, New Mexico.
Mitchell, 18 years old at the time of the concert, worked without a flash, so his black-and-white photos have an extra graininess to them. One especially striking image shows John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr from behind, with their heads outlined by the light shining in front of them.
This Mitchell photo and eight others from the forthcoming Beatles exhibit in New Mexico can be previewed now at HuffingtonPost.com.
