Paul McCartney looks back away from the audience and sees Bob Bonis standing there, camera in hand, and gives him a beaming smile. This stunning photograph shows the great affection that The Beatles had for Bob Bonis.

On August 21, 1965 The Beatles performed at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota. It was The Beatles only concert in Minnesota of their 3 U.S. tours.

As was the norm for their stadium shows, the Beatles stage was set up at mid field. For this show no photographers were permitted near the stage so the only photographs previously know of this performance are long shots taken from quite a distance. These photographs by Bob Bonis are the only photographs taken at stage level and close-up of this historic performance in Bloomington,Minnesota.
