(This collection of Beatles photos from the Bob Bonis Archive have never been published nor seen by the public. Bonis, a highly skilled and passionate photographer, also served as the U.S. tour manager for both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones during the Beatles only U.S. tours in 1964, 1965 and 1966 and the Stones’ first three U.S. tours. A treasure trove of his never-before-seen Beatles and Rolling Stones images was recently discovered and will soon begin to be released.)
