    That's the real photo, the one at the top of this thread is another rendering. A guy in Houston named Chris did all those 3D renderings, some of his work was used on the PBS/BBC program "Soundbreaking".

    Gotta say that would be a great vantage point to witness a good concert. Not sure how the sound would be though.

    I want to have one of the spots peeping through the stage curtain behind Ringo!

    As the Op says, it's Palais des Sports, June 20, 1965. A CG re-creation (done on a laptop) of a famous shot - famous I guess if you're a Beatlemaniac. :)

    The photo is by then 28 yr old photographer Patrice Habans. Quite a prolific body of work. He climbed up on the catwalk , on the catwalk , yeah on the catwalk , for the shot.

    The funny effect you see is simple barrel distortion from the wide angle. I believe it was a 48 to 50 mm lens.

    thanks db

    And here's pictures from the Hollywood Bowl with the opening act's Fender amps.

    Here we see Vox amps for the guitars while Paul is playing through a BF Showman amp, which can be discerned by the number of knobs and that single JBL speaker.


    My error....David Barnett saw what I neglected to look at!!!

    Paul's playing through an AC100 head and T60 cabinet. Doesn't look like there's a cord plugged into the Fender amp.

    No idea who the amp might have been with/for but I'd say.... Sack the road crew.

    Anyone fancy picking up that Ric' and not tripping over a cable!

    From perusing Fender schematics/layouts and having owned a BlackFace Showman (non reverb) it appears that only all non reverb models have only three knobs for the NORMAL channel whereas all the "Reverb" models (Showman or Dual) had four knobs on that channel. Identical layout to a Twin Reverb! The pic in the first post and last pic in post #46 (on a good zoom) have four pots on NORMAL and seven pots on VIBRATO.

    As Best I Can See?

    Yes, I agree. I was stipulating Showman/Dual Showan versus the DSR amp. The reverb adds that knob and so a new chassis...the size of the TR chassis rather than the non-verb’s chassis that is shared with the BF/early SF non-verb Bandmaster and BF 1X15 Pro. The Normal channel in the DSR gets the mid control that was in the TR from the beginning in 1963.

    No mics and possibly nothing plugged into the Fender probably means it wasn't used.

    But like someone mentioned...the road crew!

    To think that this was the absolute top act globally in 1965, and this mess was their stage setup. I mean, who would accept that today from the soundman at a cover gig down at the local bar?

    I saw them in 1966 in Detroit, sitting behind the stage up high. So I sorta had this kind of a view. They would occasionally turn around and perform facing the back. Opening acts were Bobbie Heb, The Cyrkle, and the Ronnettes. I think I paid $4.50. Great but brief show.

    If I have I’ve forgotten , I don’t think I’ve ever seen a guitar stand in any studio session photos. Among the holy grail of guitars.

    And they painted their guitars with day glo , nail polish spray paint and who knows what else.
