I read in a Cher bio that the group appeared there in late April or early May 66 with Sonny and Cher, Otis Redding and Bob (Eliusive Butterfly) Lind.

Also I didn't know that the group appreared at Carnegie Hall twice. Pls clarify and thanks. Very interesting.



Will have to look into the Hollywood Bowl thing.

As for Carnegie Hall, this seems to suggest that they did indeed play there twice...

Not sure if you saw my post above. Are you talking about Forest Hills? Can you give any more details on the setlist or any other info?

I don't think that there was a second Carnegie Hall show but not every thing that I say can be deemed at law.

Only remember 'Straight Shooter' at Forest Hills. Too short a set and they did not seem too thrilled to be up there.

Yeah, I've seen this, but did they actually play this show? This would have been three days before Michelle rejoined the group...

My source is the Saturday Evening Post from march 1.967. They talk about two shows: Berkley and Sacramento.

Did they really play the Palladium?? How do you know it? I thought they they never play in Europe! :D

Ignasi,

You're right. The group never did play in Europe. They were slated to but Cass' frumped up legal trouble in England put a damper on that.
