Cleveland Rocks! The defining moment that makes Cleveland “the birthplace” of rock started back in the early 1950s, with help from radio disc jockey Alan Freed. His radio show on WJW in Cleveland was gaining popularity because of the kind of music he was playing for his mostly white audience. On March 21, 1952, Freed hosted the world’s first rock and roll concert – The Moondog Coronation Ball – in Cleveland. The show, oversold by more than 10,000 tickets, caused an overflow of crowds that broke down doors and stormed the arena, resulting in a full-scale riot and, wouldn’t you know it, the first-ever rock and roll concert cancellation. Now rock music was making headlines across the country and, surprise, controversy ensued.
