We left Montreal where it was cool and rainy landing in Boston where it was cool and rainy. Getting to the airport in Montreal was strange. There are usually three vehicles always at the ready but only two were on hand. I stayed back with Jim, Paul and Tim for about 15 minutes until a long stretch limo arrived. About half way to the airport we were pulled over by the Montreal police for some infraction that I still don’t know what it was about, the whole thing was in French. I do know we weren’t speeding. Everyone had been on the plane for a while when we finally arrived. On landing in Boston passport control was fairly straight ahead of us Yanks however it was quite a delay getting the Brits through.
We did make it to The Orpheum Theatre a little after 5 for a quick soundcheck and dinner. It was a 7:30 show for a sold-out crowd of 2,755 people, a warmer and more appreciative audience would be hard to find. A great gig in the old Orpheum, one of the oldest theatres in the United States built in 1852 as the Boston Music Hall.
