A Beatles contract for a 1965 California concert that reveals that the Fab Four refused to play before a segregated audience has sold for $23,033 — more than four times its estimated price.
The contract, which was signed by the Liverpool group’s manager, Brian Epstein, specified that they “not be required to perform in front of a segregated audience” for their August 31, 1965, show at the Cow Palace in Daly City, California.
