Cream, James Gang, Poor Girls, The Brambles, Penny Arcade – Akron Civic Theatre – May 11, 1968

48 years ago today in Northeast Ohio music history, Cream performed a sold out show at the Akron Civic Theatre. The James Gang, The Poor Girls, The Brambles and Penny Arcade were the opening acts. This was the first of two concerts Cream played in Northeast Ohio on back to back nights and the only time they ever played in the Cleveland/Akron area.
