Could have been cancelled (no review)?
'I confirm that it took place as planned and was the highlight of my term. I was a student there at the time and was amazed that a band with their reputation would visit. I've just checked my diary and I note that it was a terrific concert and met my expectations. I recall waiting and hoping for Whiter Shade of Pale throughout the evening. With the second encore we were treated and this was their final number. Happy Memories. Six years later my future wife walked down the aisle to meet me at the altar accompanied by Whiter Shade of Pale played on the church organ. Yes, the 18 March 1977 concert at Hatfield Poly definitely went ahead!' (Tony Harbottle)

 

About this point, Dee Murray replaced Chris Copping as Procol Harum's bass-player.
