Beatles’ 1965 Cow Palace contract sells for $23,000

imageA year before the Beatles played the Cow Palace in 1965 there was a big hullabaloo in which they threatened to cancel a date at Florida’s Gator Bowl stadium after finding out that the audience would be segregated. So to be on the safe side, they had the contract for the Cow Palace show include a non-segregation clause. The contract, which a Santa Monica auction house just sold for $23,000, also stipulated that there be at least 150 police officers brought in to provide security, AP says.
