    20" x 24" print (the image size is 15" x 20" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 50 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

    With many of the Beatles' second US tour dates being grueling double-headers, the boys often found strange ways to entertain themselves between shows, as this photo of John Lennon dressed as Lawrence of Arabia showcases. The Beatles' back-to-back shows at the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, on August 22, 1965, drew 19,936 combined fans. And "Lennon of Arabia" wasn't the only esteemed visitor. Mike Love and Carl Wilson of rival group The Beach Boys popped up from California for the show, and they all met backstage for the first time, talking shop about girls and cars. Post-tour, the Beatles recorded Rubber Soul, an album Brian Wilson would applaud as the only one where every song "went together like no album ever made before." It even inspired Wilson to "do my own thing [Pet Sounds], and so the next morning I went to the piano and wrote God Only Knows." Apparently the feeling was mutual - Paul McCartney would later gush that the Beach Boys' album Pet Sounds "blew me out of the water" and is still an all-time favorite.

    ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHS:
    This photograph was taken by Bob Bonis, who was the U.S. Tour Manager for both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966. This is a Limited Edition fine art photograph, derived from the original negative or slide, and is printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in New York. Thanks to his unequaled access and gifted eye for composition, Bob Bonis captured thousands of unguarded, candid and iconic photographs of the two most important groups in the history of popular music. The majority of these images have never been seen or published and most are available here as Limited Edition fine art prints for the FIRST TIME!

    SHIPPING TIME:
    These fine art photographs are custom printed to order and require a high level of expertise and intense attention to detail, all delivered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York City. As these are not "off-the-shelf" items an order may take up to 10 business days to print and ship. Once printed each photograph is inspected to ensure a perfect print it is then hand-numbered and is embossed with the official Bob Bonis signature seal, as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate. It is then placed in a rigid acid-free acrylic sleeve to protect it from fingerprints and other damage
