Tucked into paragraph three of the following review of the December 16, 1988 show is confirmation of the December 17, 1988 show being canceled due to illness. :eric:

I know we already have this show listed as canceled but this is the first proof of its cancellation I’ve ever come across. It also proves that the February date was the make up date for this show. It turns out it was all Eric‘s fault! :eric: :lol:
