Statue From Historic Beatles Concert To Be Auctioned Off!
A piece of Beatles history – and TV history – is going up for auction. It’s a five-foot-tall fiberglass statue of Aphrodite, which was part of the Beatles’ stage set during the Our World concert – the first live satellite broadcast in TV history. You may remember, The Beatles performed “All You Need Is Love” along with Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, and members of The Rolling Stones. The Our World gig included performers from 19 different countries and was seen by more than 700 million viewers worldwide. The statue is expected to fetch up to £20,000 – or $27,000 dollars.
Can you remember the first televised concert you saw?
