Boz Scaggs concerts 1967-2011 (incomplete)

Boz_Scaggs_SpotlightI had this need to find out if I had ever seen Boz Scaggs, and what the venue was. As I suspected, I had, in 1972, according to the Boz Scaggs Music Community website at, though it had expired; I retrieved the information from the Wayback Machine. The Facebook page associated with it hasn’t been updated since 2010.

I didn’t put the info together, it’s not mine, and I can’t verify the entries. But it seemed a shame that the listing was inaccessible. So if anyone wants to take and expand this roster, it’d be fine with me. And if the BSMC objects, please let me know.
