London, March 25 (ANI): Pictures of The Beatles' 1965 Shea Stadium concert, which were taken by an amateur photographer, have been sold out for 48,000 dollars.

Shea Stadium was The Beatles' biggest concert - and the biggest ever pop concert by any group up to that date.

The photographer-Marc Weinstein bluffed his way backstage by using a fake press pass to get next to the stage for the historic New York gig, the BBC reported.

Omega Auctions said that Weinstein's 61 black and white images with copyright fetched 30,680 pounds compared with a pre-sale estimate of 15,000 pounds - 20,000 pounds.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said the successful bidder was a South American gentleman currently living in Washington and is a huge collector of Beatles memorabilia.

A further collection of 65 unpublished colour slides of the rock band, taken by physicist Dr Robert "Bob" Beck in 1964, were sold for 27,140 pounds. (ANI)
