681008 ? Capitol Theatre in Ottawa, with The Hollies? Did it happen? We gleaned that concert date from this newspaper article ... but brilliant sleuthing by a valued contributor strongly suggests it didn't actually take place (click link to read).


Grande Ballroom, Detroit, MI

'I attended one [Grande Ballroom gig]. The original line-up of course, ending with a 10-minute long Repent. One thing that stuck was the absolutely gorgeous, one could only say juicy, sound of BJ Wilson's drumset. Very, very carefully tuned and miked - I've never heard a drumset sound that well live anywhere in over 30 years.' (Karl Moeller)

Cocoa Beach

Procol Harum played St Louis, Mo, USA the Kiel Opera House, which was in the same building as the Kiel Auditorium but a much smaller space in either late 1968 or early 1969. The opening act was 'Nazz'. All my friends that were at that show still say that was the best concert they have ever attended.
