ZZ Top ,Earth Wind and Fire and Uriah Heep concert on 9/7 /73 was not in Rochester NY but at the Floyd Maines Arena in Binghamton N.Y. I am positive on this since I was there and it was one of my all time favorite shows.

You missed one. ZZ Top played the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson, MS on April 18, 1991. I remember it well, cause we were really bummed. The Black Crowes were hot and new, and were supposed to open for ZZ Top, but for some reason they didn't. Can't remember why, but it turned out to be a good concert anyway. Sure did want to see the Black Crowes tho, lol.
