ROCK AND ROLL ACQUIRES RINGO´S DRUMSTICKS FROM 1964 BEATLES PERFORMANCE IN CLEVELAND









Beatles fans have yet another reason to stop by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
The museum has added a few new artifacts to its collection, including something from a momentous Cleveland performance by the Beatles.

Ringo in Cleaveland, 1964
The Rock Hall has acquired the drumsticks Ringo Starr used during the Beatles Sept. 15, 1964, concert at Cleveland's Public Auditorium.
The show came at the height of Beatlemania, as police had to build a barrier around the Sheraton-Clevleand hotel, where the band stayed. However, fans managed to push the barrier down after the bandmembers waved to the street from their window.
The Beatles famously left out a back door of Public Auditorium (aka Public Hall) after the show, while police drove a decoy bus to keep fans off the band's trail.
Ringo made his return to the venue more than a half century later, during this past April's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where he was inducted by Paul.
