First and foremost, the Average White Band were a band of music fans - they would meet as ex-pat soul brothers frequenting the clubs of London; nodding their acquaintance, glad of each other's musical love.

They had toured the US with equipment borrowed from the Who. They had signed to MCA and although their debut album, Show Your Hand had been warmly received, it sold next to nothing. It resulted in the label rejecting their new demos, cut at Clover Studios in L.A.

This may be temporary, e.g. between shows, or it may be semi-permanent, e.g. when it is closed for refurbishment (sometimes it is uncertain when this happens whether it will actually open again) and sometimes it means that the theatre is completely out to action, lost or gone!
