History hasn't always been easy on us. But pressure can create diamonds. Come check out our gems.
During its inception in the 1940s, rock and roll was the ultimate boundary-breaker and the antithesis of what the world viewed as socially acceptable. Even today, its varied sounds are still laced with rebellion and its lyrics unafraid to highlight the taboo. Heck, that’s why we love it.
That being said, when you’re the city that birthed rock and roll—trust us—you’re no stranger to controversy.
In 1964, The Beatles, who were experiencing the height of their extreme stardom, performed for the first time in Cleveland.
Before the show, local law enforcement were overcome by fans seeking to break a police barricade, as well as other fans who creatively attempted to break in to the hotel where the band slumbered.
The concert, which was held inside Cleveland’s historic Public Auditorium, became so chaotic that police were forced to take the band off stage until the crowds settled.
Wrought with hysterically screaming girls and overzealous followers, it was eventually cut short on account of fans rushing the stage.
The group was quickly banned by local law enforcement from playing in Cleveland ever again (which of course, they ignored, being the rebels that they are, and performed here two years later).
Imagine that. The Beatles were banned. Doesn’t even seem plausible in this day in age.
Thankfully, the city evolved. And, so did the life of The Beatles.
In 2015, The Beatles—or at least one half of them—performed in the same space where they made their boisterous Cleveland debut 51 years earlier.
It was there that legend Paul McCartney inducted his pal and celebrated drummer Ringo Starr into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The pair (along with other famous rockers) then closed out the evening performing “With a Little Help From My Friends” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.”
Much to the delight of Clevelanders near and far, Paul McCartney returns to Cleveland for his “One on One” tour this August.
The concert stop was met with such fervent popularity that concert promoters added an additional night. He’ll now perform at Quicken Loans Arena Aug. 17 and 18 at 8 p.m.
McCartney, who last performed solo in Cleveland in 2002, is set to deliver an already lauded set list that contains a mash-up of both his own songs, as well as a few Beatles classics like "Can't Buy Me Love," "Eleanor Rigby," "Something" and "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da."
