Lots of music appears to be emerging from the world’s windows and balconies, in some cases recalling The Beatles’ famous rooftop concert from 1969. Now some enterprising fan out there might be able to replicate the band’s very first concert—from almost a decade earlier—on the actual stage where they played.
On April 10, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the band’s breakup, California-based Julien’s Auctions will offer a slew of Beatles memorabilia (with live online bidding available), from the handwritten lyrics for “Hey Jude” to corduroy trousers worn by John Lennon himself. While it may not look so illustrious, this set of wooden planks pulled straight out of the floor are in fact witnesses to history, and a marquee item that could fetch as much as $20,000.
