Unpublished color photographs of The Beatles during their first tour of the US are to be auctioned, the BBC reports.

The 65 slides include several stage shots, including George Harrison with his red Rickenbacker guitar, according to the report.

The photos were taken by award-winning physicist Dr Robert “Bob” Beck.

Beck was a researcher and inventor who died in 2002, leaving a huge archive of photographs and slides in his home in Hollywood.

Omega Auctions said Sunday the images will be sold March 22 — exactly 50 years after the Beatles released their first album.
