Does anyone know if, when, and where Roxy Music might have opened for FZ?

Eddie Jobson: "Roxy supported Frank in Milwaukee, which is where
I got to meet him. I expressed interest in his music and his band,
and the next day both bands went to Chicago. We had a day off and
Frank was playing so I went to the gig and jammed with him in
the dressing room. He was suitably impressed to invite me to
Canada at the end of the Roxy tour to tour around with him for
a week. I just played with them in dressing rooms, working things
out, so he could see if I could play his stuff and remember it.
A couple of nights I ended up on stage, guesting on violin."

So, the answer to your question: Mecca Auditorium, Milwaukee,
11/28/75.

Yes, the Canadian leg of the late '75 tour (early Dec.).

The two nights on which Jobson guested on violin were 12/7/75 Hamilton and
12/8/75 Montreal. A tape of the Hamilton show is in circulation.
