Baltimore was “one of the few fortunate cities” to host The Beatles.

According to the Beatles Bible (http://www.beatlesbible.com), “During the day, two girls attempted to have themselves delivered to the venue in a large box labelled ‘Beatles fan mail’. Their efforts were thwarted by a guard in charge of checking all deliveries.

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

The next day, the Beatles headed north to play at Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena.
