Mark Matthew Freeman writes to BtP to clarify details about the exact venue of Procol Harum's concert on 22 May 1973.
You had a question regarding the May 1973 poster for the "Paramount Northwest Theatre". Daniel Crommie's comment (here) is not entirely correct.
In the early 1970s, some dim bulb got the idea to call the Paramount Theatre in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA the "Paramount Northwest". Local residents did not like this idea and still called both venues: Paramount Theatre.
Advertisements for both of these theatres gradually began to phase out the inclusion of "Northwest" in the title. By the early 1980s, the moniker had been dropped altogether. Some folks, probably not Northwest residents, still insist on calling these venues Paramount Northwest Theatre. However, it would be more correct to simply cite both venues as: Paramount Theatre.
What can complicate identification matters is that some posters make it hard for non-residents to tell the difference between Portland and Seattle posters for the "same" venue title. Once you know the names of the ticket outlets, however, it becomes easy to tell the difference. For example, Meier and Frank would be a Portland, OR ticket outlet. Fidelity Lane would be a Seattle, WA ticket outlet.
In 1984, the Paramount Theatre in Portland, OR was remodelled and renamed: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. (not Auditorium)
Hope this helps!
