The Cavern Club is the venue where the The Beatles were first spotted by their music manager Brian Epstein.
In a statement on Facebook the music venue wrote: ‘We are appalled by an unprovoked attack on one of our entertainers yesterday. Nothing like this has ever occurred in our 28 year tenure and hopefully never will again.
‘Our excellent door staff apprehended the man and the police were called but our entertainer did not wish to press charges at the time and then went back on stage to continue his set.
‘Understandably shaken but fortunately with no major injuries.’
