Other Information:
My diary entry from 12/27/72 says this was at the "Speedway"...which may have also been the Sportatorium or part of it.
It started in the early afternoon and went into the night...and I remember it was unusually cold for South Florida (it was outdoors).
Other acts on the bill: the Elvin Bishop Group, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, and Commander Cody.

My older brother and I were visiting relatives over Christmas and I got to tag along with him to this show. I was 13 at the time and this was my first rock concert. As I recall, it started about noon and ended with AB closing the show about 2:30 am. By sundown, it was freezing and I remember the cops having a cow because there were several "campfires" being lit. Wet Willie and John Hammond also performed. John McLaughlin was amazing and Edgar/Johnny had everyone rocking. Truly an awesome first concert - became hooked on blues and fusion everafter.
