2:30 & 6 p.m., Sunday, September 13, 1964
The Beatles’ only visit to Baltimore was on Sunday, September 13, 1964. They performed two shows at the Civic Center, to a total of 28,000 fans. The best seat in the house cost a mere $3.75. The support acts were The Bill Black Combo, The Exciters, Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, and Jackie DeShannon.
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.
