GD: January 31, 1971, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA (CANCELED)

Not much to say here, just another monkey wrench in the early '71 touring works for the GD.

A student committee agreed in November 1970 to try to bring the GD out for January 31, 1971. Somewhere along the line a Jefferson Airplane concert took place that offended the University administration's sensibilities. It seems that the administration pocket-vetoed the show by just never working to get the contract signed. No show.
