I was the second high bidder to the current owner when this was on Ebay a number of years ago.  I know the owner.  Set looks much nicer than the first time around.

Yes it is.  It has been cleaned up, re-furbed and a lot of period correct parts added.

The holy grail for diehard fans........Neil bought this just before going out on his first shows  ...US/ Canada.

Not knowing the current owners situation......but man,if I owned it ......it would be a very painful sell

Yes..........that kit was used from FBN up to ATWAS............Neil towered over the kit in that promo.......eventually Neil would be consumed by his kit


Does anyone know where the Fly by Night promo was filmed....?....Background Looks like whatever was available they used

Well yesterday it said current bid $80K and today there is no bid?  I have to say as an aside, I follow a lot of auctions, and the Bonham's site is the most tedious, slow and hard to figure out site I have ever been on!!  Not sure i would have chosen them to sell my stuff.

I agree.  For one thing starting at $80,000 is just dumb.  Start it low and get some bidding going.  there is nothing like the psychology of not wanting your bid topped by someone else.

According to WTFOTE, it was filmed in a school in Atlanta Georgia while they were doing a short residency at Alex Cooley's Electric Ballroom in January 75.
The castle backdrop was already in place on the stage for another production.
