Video: Beatlemania in Belfast - New photos released from 1964 King's Hall concert


A selection of previously unreleased photographs from a concert the Beatles played in Belfast can be viewed for the first time.

The Fab Four performed two shows at the King's Hall, on 2 November 1964, in front of more than 16,000 screaming fans.

The pictures were taken by photographer Nick Newbery, who was working for his student newspaper in Belfast at the time, and "was sent to cover a story on a band coming to town called The Beatles".

The four pictures have been released by the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI).

PRONI's Iain Fleming said: "I'm sure there are people out there who attended the concert and who would love to see the images."
