Images of legendary band The Beatles spanning from 1963 to 1970 including candid behind-the-scenes pictures of the 'Fab Four' on tour are on display at a four-month-long exhibition in London.
The launch of Getty Images Gallery's collection at the Movieum of London in County Hall on Thursday marks the 40th Anniversary since The Beatles played their last live performance on the rooftop of the Apple Building at 3 Savile Row.
The images span from 1963 to 1970 and include shots from the filming of 'Help' and 'A Hard Day's Night'. The exhibition features rare and unseen images of the 'Fab Four' from famous photographers including Robert Whitaker, who accompanied John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr on their 1966 Far Eastern Tour.
"The opening of this new exhibition space is an exciting development for the Gallery and we could not imagine a better way to mark the occasion than with an exhibition featuring one of the world's greatest bands.
"The images in this exhibition showcase the 'Fab Four' at their dizzying best, capturing a selection of their oddest, funniest and loudest moments over the course of 10 electrifying years," said Louise Garczewska, director of the Getty Images Gallery.
