Post by helicine »

got a heads up about this over email last night:

I got the impression from the email, that the dude just found the pic and wasn't at the show. The ticket clearly was printed for 3/6/89 and then changed. Quite possibly a printing error that was fixed before tix sold. Something to look into.

Nice find helicine! :cool:

Isn't it sweet when these goodies just land in your email?

Them playing this show on the 7th certainly goes a long way to explain why the following show was cancelled.

03/07/1989 - The Lost Horizon, Syracuse, New York

I'll see if I can find out anything else.

Although the above article doesn't explain the misprint on the ticket it does go a long way in firming up the 7th as the correct date of the show.

It also gives us the opener Kim Ryder.

I love the photo caption too!
All the way back in '89 people were getting this stuff screwed up. :lol:

While trolling the archive I found out that this show was indeed originally scheduled for March 6, 1989. It turns out it was postponed until March 7 because NBC was filming a movie in and around the venue.

As I mentioned earlier, this show was rescheduled because NBC was on location filming a movie. The name of the movie is “Stuck With Each Other“ and starred Tyne Daly and Richard Crenna. The movie featured ballroom dancing which was filmed at the venue.

I was able to grab the whole article but it looks like crap and you can barely read it. What I ended up having to do was zoom in on the pertinent stuff so you can read it.
