« Crimson in the Park: The Flaming Pablum Photo Quiz | Main | Upping the Ante »

brick wall in the gallery photo triggered vague memories of the central park south area. then i remembered taking my son ice skating and voila! concerts at wollman were way before my time, sadly. must've stopped in the 70s? clips of that crimson show are dynamite.


Rheingold was the original sponsor, then Schaefer until 1977, then Dr. Pepper. The venue moved in the very late 1970's or early 80's to a pier on the Hudson River, just south of the Intrepid. Don't know when the shows ended.
(Ticket prices were great. I bet King Crimson tickets were $3 or less.)

wondered if there was a connection to the Pier concerts. I saw the Clash, Elvis C and more there. Pier shows ended 85/86 iirc
