DFTR has become BOC's signature song - it's their hit - despite never reaching higher than no 12 or whatever it was in the charts.This was the song that started to open doors for BOC but the jury is still out whether this was good or bad for BOC in the long run...Aided by a host of allies, including his wife Claire (Robin Wright); his Chief of Staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly); young Intrepid Reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara); and a host of other unwitting pawns, Frank begins a chess game of immense political importance. Taking revenge on those who wronged him, Underwood also positions himself to grab more power than he had ever previously planned. The most you'll ever make of yourself is blowing men like me. Although your site lists a Chicago Aragon date of as the original date for this show, I have a stub that seems to indicate it was actually scheduled for . The stub shows a date code of "102" and a partial date of "02 1976", so I believe that may be the actual originally scheduled date.Although roadie Rick Reyer had this cancelled gig down for 1st Jan, I think Ken's ticket evidence seems pretty clear. I've been telling friends about this concert for years.
I think Neal had been with the band less than a year.
I saw them 2 years later at the same venue (the Cap Centre was a fantastic place to see shows - incredible acoustics for a hockey rink) and I couldn't believe it was the same band - they cooked.
Back to 4 Jan 76 - REO was up next, followed by Ted.
But even if you didn't, that still wouldn't account for it being ripped. I remember all members coming out to the front of the stage playing guitars, awesome. However, for whatever reason they chose to have Leslie West close the show.
I suppose it's possible they honoured these tickets for the later gig on the 23rd? There was a mass exodus to the doors which was too bad, because Leslie gave us a pretty good set - Mississippi Queen and Nantucket Sleighride being the obvious highlights.
