Overview

For teenagers, the world changed when Ed Sullivan introduced The Beatles. The 1964 Beatles’ tour filled auditoriums with screams of delight, excitement, and full-blown fan hysteria. This was the case in Cleveland, Ohio, where police stopped the show, ordered the Beatles off the stage, and banned them from the city. In August 1966, the group launched their final tour, but the innocence from two years earlier was missing as controversy over John Lennon's remarks about Christianity made safety more of a concern than ever before. A scheduling change brought them to Cleveland Stadium where thousands of fans crashed through police. It was obvious The Beatles could no longer be protected. The Beatles In Cleveland brings to life two of the wildest concerts in Beatles history. Catch the excitement through eyewitness accounts and never-before published photos.
