“When the Beatles toured Asia in ’66, celebrated photographer Bob Whitaker was given access-all-areas coverage of the event. Capturing the whole iconic atmosphere, from the backstage buzz to the roar of the crowd, the resulting images encapsulate what it must have been like to be part of the world’s most famous band at the height of their fame,” Artcoustic representatives stated.
The images are on display at the new Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street, London, UK through August 21, 2004.
