9/16/18: Tad Gormley Stadium, City Park
54 years ago today the Beatles played their only New Orleans concert. New Orleans was the 22nd stop on their historic 25 city North American tour in 1964.
12,000 fans paid the $5 to enter the venue, then called City Park Stadium. As several warm up bands, including local musician Clarence 'Frogman' Henry took the stage, backstage the Beatles fulfilled their only New Orleans request- meeting Fats Domino! Paul McCartney and the band serenaded him with "I'm in Love Again."
When the Beatles took the stage, the screams of fans drowned out the music. Halfway through their 12-song set fans pushed through barricades and rushed the field in front of the stage. In what has been described as 'a riot,' the incident took over 200 police officers and security personnel 20 minutes to quell. The Beatles continued playing as fans suffered injuries and 200 fainting girls were revived with ammonia spirits. Later McCartney would say, "That's the closest we've been, really, to getting worried."
The next day (9/17) was supposed to be a 'down day' for the band, with plans to visit the French Quarter and local clubs to soak up some New Orleans music, but a last minute booking saw the Beatles leave on a chartered flight at 11:30pm- less than 24 hours after arriving. The next day at a press conference in Kansas City, the band was asked if there was any place in the United States they hadn't seen, but would like to. John Lennon responded, "New Orleans is one of them."
