I could be mistaken, but I saw Trapeze in the summer of 1976. They played at Texas Hall on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. I have been down stairs and looked at the dressing rooms at Texas Hall and they look this picture looks the same. The bill for the show was : First up was trio with Bob Welch as front man (can't recall what they were called?) Second up was a trio called The Leslie West band (Mountain) and finally Trapeze with Mel, Dave, Glenn with I believe Terry playing keyboards but off to the right of the stage. An excellent show!!!!!

Trapeze Flashback..Summer of 1976

Charlie,
I was there too for that concert! Thanks to Shirean and the song snippets and other stuff my memory has come back a little.That IS UTA backstage in this picture ..( what I would't do to get my hands on a copy of that!)
It sounds like you hit some of the same clubs we used to play..Cardi's Sneaky Pete's Mother Blues.
I saw Trapeze in Austin and Houston a lot..with and without Glenn..
Those were the days,man!

rockinhouston.com offers some delightful Trapeze goodies, including memorabilia and photos of the gig at Sam Houston Coliseum on 11th September 1976

http://rockinhouston.com/performers/trapeze/264?page=1&groupBy=Years

(Chuck, check out the Led Zep link under Performers, it'll make your heart sing).

This site shows several cities and venues of the 1976 tour, unfortunately without detailed dates. Support were Paris and Leslie West.

My search found nothing about a ticket from Lubbock, TX, 1976 so this one might be a good addition for the Tourography.

Did you track down the actual dates for these shows or just the venues?

Excerpt from The Odessa American, dated Sunday, August 29, 1976, Page 53

Quote:
Trapeze Will Perform Here

The original Trapeze will make a return visit to Odessa Sept 9, with an R p m concert at Mu* Ector County Coliseum The band will be accompanied by the Leslie West Band. Tickets are $5 in advance and $b at the door. They may be purchased at Endless Horizons and Tape Town in Odessa, Music Haul in Midland and Head Post in Hig Spring. Trapeze recently reformed after splitting up. Members include Glenn Hughes, Mel Galley and Dave Holland. West used to be guitarist with Mountain. Trapeze appeared in Odessa about a year and one half ago The current tour is promoted by Stone City Attractions of San Antonio.

This enough downtracking?

Just the venues for now. I forget where I found these shows listed, but they didn't have the dates.
