Peter Tosh: New Orleans tour dates updated!

Based on our research, we at the MIDNIGHT RAVER BLOG can conclude that Peter Tosh played the New Orleans, Louisiana area a total of4 times between 1979 and 1983.  Three of these shows have never been documented in any Tosh tour dates listing and one of the shows has been mis-dated for years.
On FEBRUARY 18, 1979 he plays the Ole Man River at 2125 Highway 90 in Avondale, Louisiana which is located in Jefferson Parish on the west bank of the Mississippi River.
On AUGUST 7, 1981, Tosh plays the Saenger Performing Arts Center at 143 N. Rampart Street, an historic landmark located in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana.  This show has been dated August 1, 1981 for many years by collectors, however, the included articles from the New Orleans Times-Picayune clearly indicate that the show was actually on August 7, 1981.
On Sunday, OCTOBER 24, 1982 Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff play the Saenger Performing Arts Center at 143 N. Rampart Street, an historic landmark located in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana.
On JULY 27, 1983, Tosh plays the President Riverboat concert-cruise at the Canal Street Wharf, New Orleans, Louisiana.  Reggae/rap group Tidal Wave open the show.
