Touring Dates 1972
Permalink   

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about where Rare Earth toured in 1972.  I saw them in a concert in 1971-1972 (I think) in West Virginia.  Does anyone have any info about where they appeared?

John-In 1971 Rare Earth played quite a few shows as special guest with Sly+The Family Stone. They played at NYC's Madison Square Garden as well as many other venues in the northeast U.S. Off the top of my head I couldn't tell you the dates, however, I can ad one definite date for 1972. 12/11/72 at what is now called Avery Fisher Hall in NYC's Lincoln Center and Rare Earth was headlining. I still have the program page with the date and a photo of the band. At this show the band was presented with a gold record for Rare Earth In Concert by record company execs onstage during a short break between songs. I might have something with the garden date on it, I will take a look next time I have a chance. They also did some shows during this era with Deep Purple if that's any help. Up until a few years ago I still had numerous copies of Circus rock+roll mags which contained a concert section that listed concert dates with the venue, city and state for many acts and Rare Earth was among them. I now regret getting rid of them. JockoD

I recall a Chicago concert on Friday, April 7, 1972, the day after a blizzard. They also came to Chicago July 8 & November 7. I think all dates were at the Arie Crown.

My bad. RE did not perform on Nov 7, got dates mixed up somewhere. They did come to town in Jan 1973, on Super Bowl Sunday.
