The David Anthony Fine Art gallery displayed some spectacular photos from the Beatles' very first concert on American soil at the Washington Coliseum in Washington, D.C. The rare photos were taken by then-18-year-old photographer Mike Mitchell, who was given an all-access pass to the historic concert on February 11, 1964. Mitchell’s portraits of the Beatles are the centerpiece of a month-long photography exhibition at the gallery. This marks the first time the images have been shown since their unveiling in 2011 at a Christie’s auction in New York City.
