Goin’ to Kansas City…

Rare Beatles film of ’64 Kansas gig sells for $6,600

The two-minute silent, color 8mm film was uncovered by American Drew Dimmel who attended the concert as a young boy in Kansas City in September 1964 but had forgotten about the footage until he was clearing out his parents’ home.

The stadium referred to in this story is in Kansas City, MISSOURI, not Kansas City, Kansas.

Several readers pointed this out. Our headline was wrong. We corrected:
