    The Beatles (Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr), perform on stage at Municipal Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri on September 17, 1964. When the itinerary for The Beatles' first full U.S. tour was announced, Kansas City fans were very disappointed that their city was not on the list. Charles O. Finley, owner of the Kansas City Athletics baseball team, swore that he would bring The Beatles to his home town. He met with Brian Epstein in San Francisco at the opening show of the tour and asked him to bring The Beatles to Kansas City, offering first $50,000 and then raising the offer to $100,000. Epstein refused. Then, a week later in Los Angeles, he tried again. Epstein told him that The Beatles had only one day open in their schedule and wanted to go sightseeing in New Orleans. Finley tore up his check for $100,000 and wrote a new one for $150,000. Astonished at the offer, Epstein said he would have to defer to the group. When asked if they would give up their day off, John Lennon, speaking for the group, replied "We'll do whatever you want." In return for giving up their day off, The Beatles earned the highest amount ever paid at that time for a musical concert, a staggering $4,838 dollars per minute of performance.

    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!

    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

    Each photograph is accompanied by a package that contains the following documents:

    • A hand-numbered and signed Certificate of Authenticity from The GRAMMY Museum attesting to the fact that each print is derived from the original negative or slide, and stating the size and print number you have purchased
    • A Congratulations letter from The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The story of The Bob Bonis Archive
    • The backstory of your specific photograph or event information
    • Suggestions on framing your Bob Bonis Photograph

    Watermarks: The Bob Bonis Archive logo that appears on the lower right corner of the photos pictured above is only a watermark and WILL NOT APPEAR on the actual print you receive.

    What Your Actual Prints Will Look Like: Your actual prints are custom printed on either 11" x 14", 16" x 20" or 20" x 24" professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper, depending on which size photograph you purchase. Each print has the image centered on the paper, with a white border, and is hand-numbered with your specific print number and the edition size directly below the image on the left bottom side as shown in the examples below. The official Bob Bonis Signature Seal is embossed in the lower right-hand corner of the paper.
