There has been a lot of confusion surrounding the 8/30/72 & 8/31/72 shows. Gaelic Park is (was?) actually the name of the venue which is located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx in NYC. I believe there was only 1 gig played over the course of those 2 days, probably on 8/31/72? You can actually hear Ian Gillan apologize for being late or not showing up the previous evening or something to that effect on the audience tape of the show that's been in circulation. I've seen the same tape listed under both dates but I believe it's actually from 8/31/72 with no gig on the 30th. I seem to recall John Lennon's "One to One" concert took place on 8/30/72 at Madison Square Garden so maybe the boys took the night off to catch the show?
