In this magnificent photograph, taken by the band’s U.S. Tour Manager Bob Bonis, John Lennon and Paul McCartney seem to be singing to each other, while performing an afternoon concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on August 21, 1966. The Beatles were originally scheduled to perform at Crosley Field on the evening of August 20th, but while the opening acts were performing a huge storm rolled in forcing the concert to be canceled before The Beatles took the stage. The Fab Four already had a show on deck for the next evening in St. Louis so the show was rescheduled for the afternoon of August 21, 1966. Directly following the show the band boarded a plane to St. Louis, where they performed the same night. It marks the only time The Beatles would play two different American cities on the same day. Bonis’ rare, exclusive and artistic photographs from this show are the only color photographs that exist of the afternoon concert in Cincinnati.
