A glance at the BtP gigs page for 2017 will convince you to dismiss this question instantly

 

Q09b  

Incredibly no gig on the Fiftieth Anniversary tour included a song from every official album the band has released a high proportion had IV albums missing (meaning there were IV albums from which no song was played at that show) and, interestingly [according to the groovy tabulated summaries at the foot of the relevant BtP setlists] no II venues on the list given above heard the same number of albums represented.
Judging by the tabulated summaries, it's true that no gigs listed above heard the same number of albums represented. One of the tabulated summaries is actually wrong, but that doesn't alter the fact that this is the correct question for the answer above

 

Q09c  


Procol Harum, during the course of their MMXVII tour, visited each one of the concert venues in the above list, in this order
A glance at the BtP gigs page for 2017 will convince you to dismiss this question instantly

 

Q09d

All Procol gigs feature Gary Brooker MBE on piano ... but the Roman numeral here is chaotic and nonsensical ... which rules out the question

 

Q09e  


The Procol Harum concerts in the venues listed above all took place in different countries; that is to say, no II concerts on the list above took place in the same country
Demonstrable nonsense: London and Nottingham are in the same country, territory, realm ... call it what you will
