Also on the bill were, in order of appearance, The Bill Black Combo, The Exciters, Clarence'Frogman' Henry, and Jackie DeShannon.At the Public Auditorium a police line of over 100 people attempted to keep the fans from the stage, but was slowly pushed back by the crowds. Eventually a handful broke through the cordon and climbed onto the stage. Concerned for The Beatles safety, Inspector Michael Blackwell and Deputy Inspector Carl Bare decided to stop the concert.
Bare walked onto the stage and took a microphone, telling the crowd that the show was over and to sit down. At the time The Beatles were performing All My Loving, and continued to play despite the police wishes.
Blackwell also arrived onstage and gestured to The Beatles to stop performing. They reluctantly put down their instruments and temporarily left the stage, amid the sound of booing fans.
In their dressing room backstage, John Lennon told Art Schreiber from local radio station KYW: This has never happened to us before. We have never had a show stopped. These policemen are a bunch of amateurs. " An angry Brian Epstein nonetheless put up a diplomatic front, saying "The police were absolutely right. This has never happened before, but it was clear to me from the start that there was something very wrong.The enthusiasm of the crowd was building much too early. After a 10-minute delay Blackwell told the crowd the concert would continue if they remained in their seats. The morning hosts from KYW, Specs Howard and Harry Martin, were brought onstage to tell the audience to remain sitting, and shortly afterwards the show continued. When the concert eventually finished, The Beatles escaped through a rear door while the police once more drove the decoy riot bus at high speed from the venue. They were taken to Cleveland Hopkins Airport, from where they flew to New Orleans.
