These enigmatic doors appear on every floor..curious. 


Just time for a quick bite before sound check..

Num num Pizza sandwich mumbles Bo.


Traffic played here back in 1970 and quite recently the venue has been refurbished with  not only a really cool lighting rig but also a projectionist to provide animated visuals within the auditorium itself.


Miss Lilly gives the thumbs up as the eager fans make a bee line to fill up with merchandise.


Look it's a top down view of the stage , all is finally apparent with the myserious 'shaftway' doors.. 


And the sound of Steve Winwood fills the theater after 45 years..

You can bet the kids went wild!

Dear Mr. Fantasy!! Aided and abetted by Bo's lights and Scott's fabulous projections..
