yea, a god damn rip off! but the entrance was rather cheap: one chicken and 5 grams of tobacco!

That was for a pit ticket, you could still get a lucky dip back then for just the chicken

Today, you might still be able to get a Lucky Dip for 5 grams. In some areas...

yeh things are mega-fkt these days but no one wants to admit to the level of greed.
I hauled a dozen sqwakers in a rack on the back of my mule
and all I got was beat up by a seamstress for some feather-suit that funk-boy thought
would wave and flutter when his bottom wiggled. I never saw those chickens again either. A LOT of kids saw this too. Disgraceful.

Plus the only one we actually got to meet was Bill who stared at my wife like a cougar does a rabbit, and didn't even talk to me.

This was a great tour. The way they cleared the peasants out of the way so the horse and carriage can make it to the stage was incredible.

It wasn’t all fun and games on that tour. Times were pretty tough back then and security was non-existent. If somebody tall was standing in front of you then you could just whack their head off without drawing too much attention. No muss, no fuss. A lot of fans went home headless on that tour. I was one of them. I never saw them again after that one time. Wasn’t much point without any head.

If I understood correctly from old manuscripts, the famous "ancient art of weaving" was born during that tour.



It still goes on today and will be on the 2092 tour on Mars !
That is more than real and beyond !

Weaving processes created millennia ago are part of the most cutting-edge technology on NASA’s Orion spaceship that may one day shield humans from heat as they ride all the way to Mars and back.:

The 5 grams are still a currency but it changed through the years. During the 1972 tour it was 5 grams of a powder... To attend a Cher concert today it is 5 grams of Botox.

i didn't see them till 1795; they had changed guitarists but were still pretty good.
They had a taylor for awhile; very cool clothes the entire time he was with them. They named the new guy 'wood' some kind of joke about where they got the guitars from i think.

Ithink that due to the massive amount of venerial diseases in circulation at the time it wasn't called "lucky dip" but "lucky drip".

I’m glad I listened to those warnings about the brown jugs of moonshine. Folks got real sick and the nurse ran out of leeches.
