Issue Details: 

Because this concert took place after midnight, there is confusion around the date. Some sources list Saturday April 18th, while others list Sunday April 19th. The concert took place on Saturday night/Sunday morning. The issued CD also includes "So Long, Eric," from that evening, though the original release had an edited take including material recorded the previous night (adding to the confusion around dates). -CD
