A note from Mark Schoifet, New York City:
Thanks for putting together the excellent Music Circus Web site. Thought I would pass along some trivia. If you look at the 1969 concerts, you'll see that there is no act listed for July 20. That's because the Spiral Starecase (the one-hit-wonders of "I Love You More Today Than Yesterday" fame) canceled the show because Neil Armstrong was going to walk on the moon that night. I told my father that the show would be canceled but for some reason he didn't think a man walking on the moon was that big a deal. So we drove down from Highland Park and of course the show was canceled. I did, however, get to see the Four Seasons, Fifth Dimension, Lovin' Spoonful, Ramsey Lewis and Gary Puckett and the Union Gap at the Circus. It was a special place.
