This venue and location for this concert is sometimes given as Ludwigshalle, Ludwigsburg, but according to a critical review in the Mannheimer Morgen (the newspaper for Mannheim and Ludwigshafen), the Davis group performed one show at 8:00 pm on November 2 to a small audience at the Ebert Halle in Ludwigshafen. Thanks to Alexander Keth for this information.
