No, no, no - I'm not gonna share it, don't expect too much from the subject :)

I have one question for Mr Scully or someone else who'll be able to answer: '1984' played at Olympia Theatre at 23/12/1967 and as it states on Queenconcerts.com: "Supporting: Jimi Hendrix, Traffic, Pink Floyd", but to my knowledge Pink Floyd played there at 22/12/1967... Nothing serious, but it'd be great to know for sure when this show happened.

According to In The Flesh: Pink Floyd Live, the Christmas On Earth special started on the 22nd but Pink Floyd took the stage at 5am, presumably on the 23rd. So 1984 was probably on some time between 12am and 5am on the 23rd, though the show actually started on the 22nd.
