Man, there were some great concerts there, along with the Aragon in Chicago, pre the days of "Arena" rock.
My main issue back then was not scraping together the $5 or $7.50 to see any of the big bands of the time .... it was traveling by bus and dealing with the under-18 11PM curfew that the Chicago Police were very 'concerned' with, especially after the 68' convention and if you had long hair. Fun times!

God playing Rock....nothing before....nothing since.
Emulated by many but never achieved by ANY in brilliance.
After 45 years on this planet,still my favorite tune.
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face, stars fill my dreams
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait, all will be revealed
Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, sounds caress my ears
But not a word I heard could I relay, the story was quite clear
Oooh, baby I've been flying...Mama, there ain't no denyin'
Oooh yeah, I've been flying, Mama ain't no denyin', no denyin'
All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
Tryin' to find....Tryin' to find where I've been.
Oh, pilot of the storm that leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again
Like the dust that lufts high in June, when moving through Kashmir.
Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years
With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear
When I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah
When I see, when I see the way they stay, yeah
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down...
Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down
Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there
