During shows for the Big Beat tour at the Boston Arena on May 3, 1958, a Navy sailor is stabbed, others are injured, and arrests are made outside of the concert hall. Alan Freed, the tour's promoter, is charged with inciting a riot, but the charges are later dropped. The incident, which becomes know as the "Boston riot", results in the cancellation of scheduled shows in Troy, New York; Providence, Rhode Island; New Haven, Connecticut; and Newark, New Jersey.
