An exhibition featuring previously unseen photographs of The Beatles by David Magnus will go on display this week at Proud Chelsea gallery. Shot at EMI Studio 1 in Abbey Road in 1967 when the band performed All You Need is Love for the BBC in the world’s first live global TV broadcast, the photos give a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse to an iconic moment of cultural history.
The series includes a mixture of posed and candid shots, showing George Harrison and John Lennon backstage waiting for a cup of tea; Paul McCartney painting signs; Ringo Starr having a cigarette break at his drum kit; and all four sitting in the canteen with a policeman guarding them close by.
David was granted exclusive access to the band for the historical broadcast on 24 June 1967, which reached over 400 million people globally. The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of this event.
The Beatles Unseen: Photographs by David Magnus opens at Proud Chelsea, London from 16 March – 14 May 2017.
