    Well, yes, I was one of those old timers....Returned back to campus on Sunday afternoon to an empty frathouse and walked across the street and found they had moved some sound equipment at the last minute which opened up a few tickets to sold out W&M Hall...I was in the right place at the right time, 13th row on the floor...Don't believe this was actually his last show, but he did stop performing a year and a half later. This concert was actually filmed for "In Concert" which was a popular hour long, late Friday/Saturday night TV show back then. Stevens got upset with one of the close-up cameramen midway through the show and chased him offstage because he felt like it was an unnecessary distraction. Thanks for sharing the link!! Brings back alot of memories.....Phi Beta Kappa Hall was the venue for the presidential debate between Ford and Carter that year...

    The Hall was a magnet back then for many, many great concerts...Crosby, Stills & Nash, Springsteen, Buffett, Sly & the Family Stone, on and on. Someone made the great decision to book the Grateful Dead on Family Weekend. What a sight that was for parents :-)
    I had the good fortune to get to work dinners in the Hall basement for bands before many concerts, including Springsteen, Jackson Browne, and John Denver...Even got to play ping pong with Denver before his concert. Have often thought that students these days don't get to have the same experiences we were blessed with at the Hall back then......
