Beatles Wouldn't Play For Segregated Crowds

Beatles Wouldn't Play For Segregated Crowds

After reporting last week that The Beatles knocked Lil Wayne out of the iTunes top spot, we're learning today that the Fab Four refused to play for segregated crowds back in the '60s. According to Spinner, a contract and concert rider were recently revealed from a show at the Cow Palace in San Francisco in 1965. And on the documents alongside notes of needed security and stuff like cots and a portable TV set, there's the guideline that they would "not be required to perform in front of a segregated audience."

If you're interested in owning the contract, you can bid on it at Nate D Sanders in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sept. 20. It's expected to go forward upwards of $5,000, so good luck!
