Lincoln High School auditorium
Yonkers, New York, U.S.A.

I was at the Badfinger show at Lincoln High School in Yonkers, N.Y.  I was 13 at the time (56 now).  Aside from two local bands opening: Gravis & East,  David Bromberg was also an opening act.  Unfortunately for him, he was booed off the stage. In defense of the audience (mostly teens), Bromberg was a bad choice for the show as he was more of an acoustic/folkie act.  Promo Beatles 45s were handed out as you entered (Dialogue from the 'Let It Be' film), many of which wound up being flung like frisbees at Bromberg!

Lastly, WNEW-FM DJ Scott Muni was not there, although Apple promo man & Yonkers resident Pete Bennett said a few words before the show.
