Unpublished early color photographs of The Beatles' first U.S. tour will be sold at a U.K. auction.


The photos were taken during the rock band's 1964 visit to the U.S., when colour film was expensive and most images of the group were in black and white.


The collection of 65 slides contains many stage shots, including George Harrison with his legendary red Ricken-backer guitar and close-up portraits from a Las Vegas Sahara Hotel press conference and Las Vegas Convention Centre gig.
