Rare photos of Beatles first ever US tour fetch £223,600

Never-before seen photographs of Liverpool legends the Beatles’ first US concert in Washington DC have been sold in New York for more than 360,000 dollars (£223,600).

The Fab Four played their first US concert on February 11 1964, at the Washington Coliseum, two days after their debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Mike Mitchell, 65, who now works as an art photographer in Washington, was 18 at the time and took photographs just feet away.

Fifty silver gelatin prints he made from negatives were sold individually at Christie’s auction house.

The images, plus photos from another Beatles concert, had been estimated to fetch a total of just 100,000 dollars.

What would you think if I sang out of tune

Would you stand up and walk out on me

Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song

And I’ll try not to sing out  of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends

Mm, I get high  with a little help from my friends

Mm, gonna try with a little help from my  friends

And YES, my folks gave me the album for Christmas; and YES, it was my favorite present that year.
