Saville Riots Row
uncredited writer, Record Mirror, 25 February 1967
OVER 1,000 Teddy Boys wearing their 1950 zoot suits, winkle pickers and beetle crushers (we are told) rioted last Sunday at the Saville Theatre in London's West End, in protest to the safety curtains being brought down only 25 minutes after the start of CHUCK BERRY'S 40 minute act. Light fittings were ripped off the walls, rows of seats were torn down and the safety curtains were ripped as crowds refused to leave.
