The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: September 13, 1964 (Sunday)

Civic Center, West Baltimore St. Baltimore, Maryland, USA

This was The Beatles’ only visit to Baltimore. They performed two shows at the Civic Center, to a total of 28,000 fans. The support acts were The Bill Black Combo, The Exciters, Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, and Jackie DeShannon.

The Beatles stayed at the Holiday Inn after the second show. Police officers on horseback restrained the fans from storming the building.

John Lennon was interviewed by Larry Kane as part of an on-going series of interviews with the group. Kane was the only American reporter allowed to travel with the Beatles during their 1964 North American tour, and also accompanied them on their 1965 tour.
