Omega Auctions' next big Beatles auction on March 22, which happens to be the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles “Please Please Me” album, will include a wealth of memorabilia including rare photos of the Beatles' Shea Stadium concert, the UK Daily Mail reported Sunday.
The auction house said the sale will include a large collection of rare vinyl and memorabilia. Omega says the auction will include items “to suit all budgets, so Beatles collectors everywhere can get involved.”
The Daily Mail reported the auction will include a collection of photos taken at the Beatles' Shea Stadium by Marc Weinstein, who managed to get a close view of the show without photo credentials. Weinstein told us in a 2009 interview that only one of the Beatles paid any attention to what he was doing.
"In going over the pictures, George was the only one looking into the camera. I kind of wondered if he was wondering who I was. But he was always looking into the camera. ... I didn’t know whether he was questioning what was going on or what," he said.
