It's possible, but I've not seen any mention of that anywhere.

Hi Glen

Great work from you and everyone else who's helped, man. You know, there are great stories that we band members still marvel at or laugh about that go along with many of those shows.

In the amazingly extensive Concertography you've compiled, I saw some tour dates in early '81 that are missing. I saved a lot of the original schedule sheets from those days, so... here's a small contribution:

03/03/1981 - Mississippi Queen - La Crosse, IL
03/04/1981 - Market Square Arena - Indianapolis, IN (w/April Wine & Nazareth)
03/05/1981 - Point East - Linwood, IL
03/06/1981 - Haymaker's - Wheeling, IL
03/08/1981 - Harpo's - Detroit, MI
03/09/1981 - Dooley's - East Lansing, MI
03/11/1981 - Metro Center - Rockford, IL (w/The Romantics & UFO)
03/14/1981 - Hill Auditorium - Ann Arbor, MI (w/The Romantics)
03/18/1981 - Uncle Sam's - Buffalo, NY
03/21/1981 - Emerald City - Cherry Hill, NJ
03/22/1981 - Louie's Rock City - East Lansing, MI
03/24/1981 - North Main Forum Arena - Presque Isle, ME (w/Ted Nugent)
03/25/1981 - The Auditorium - Bangor, ME (w/Ted Nugent)
03/27/1981 - Cumberland County Civic Center - Portland, ME (w/Ted Nugent)
03/28/1981 - Cape Cod Coliseum - South Yarmouth, MA (w/Ted Nugent)
03/29/1981 - Stabler Arena - Bethlehem, PA (w/Ted Nugent)
03/30/1981 - Civic Center - Hartford, CT (w/Ted Nugent)

04/03/1981 - Hullabaloo - Rensselaer, NY

Great Marty! I will add those into the listing. Thanks.

The early dates are especially interesting. I imagine the stories are too!

If you come across any more dates, please don't hesitate to share them.
