The concert took place at the recently-refurbished outdoor amphitheatre holding 1,241 persons. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, it's owned and operated by the County of Los Angeles and located in a county regional park.

BtP's Palers' Festival in Los Angeles starts on 25 July (Friday). Entitled 'Leaving for the Coast', it will consist of three days of music-making, largely at BB King's Blues Club. There will be two parties there on Monday 28 July, one including a full meal and live music in the afternoon, and one after the Procol Harum concert ... of course, BtP has invited Procol to both parties.
