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 only $3.75.
The support acts were The Bill Black Combo, The Exciters, Clarence 'Frogman' Henry, and Jackie DeShannon.
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.
