On the Road to Dreams

TwistedWheel

Although most sources report that Cream's "warm up" show at the Twisted Wheel took place on Friday, July 29, their itinerary shows that they
actually played the club on Saturday, the 30th, just one night prior to their Windsor "debut".

Itinerary

The band was paid £75 to play two thirty minute shows, but it clearly was a long night!

Oh, yes, Good Luck!
