Rare photos of Beatle’s first world tour visit to Seattle

In August 1964, The Beatles had been playing together for four years and were embarking on their first official world tour. Seattle’s KeyArena, then called the Seattle Coliseum, was the third stop on their tour.

Timothy Eagan, a 19-year-old photographer from Queen Anne, was able to score a press pass from a family friend.

His photographs are now managed by MOHAI, who describes the scene: “The fearless teen elbowed his way up to the front of the stage to shoot three rolls of film.”
