The Beatles played a 15-minute set which included five songs: I Feel Fine, Nowhere Man, Day Tripper, If I Needed Someone and I’m Down.

May 1, 1972: Judge Bernard J. Lasker signed a temporary order in Federal Court restraining the Immigration and Naturalization Service from holding a deportation hearing for John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Lennon’s motion asks that they be classified as “aliens of distinguished merit and ability.” (next Beatles, see May 11; see Lennon for expanded story)
