Louis Armstrong

Hier ist seine Aufstellung zu Armstrongs Europa-Tournee im Jahre 1962:

When I look at your very nice autographed program I notice you say that you got it at a concert at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund in 1962. Frankly I have very few dates from Louis' 1962 European tour. This is it so far:

1962.05.29          Köbenhavn (Copenhagen), Denmark, departure for New York and Chile (Stratemann p.478)

As you can see many dates are misssing, among them the Dortmund concert. I would be much obliged if you could tell me what date Louis played the Westfalenhalle in 1962. - And if you also have knowledge of any of the other missing dates - superb!

Best wishes



Hakan fehlten also die entsprechenden Daten.

Der Veranstalter könnte eventuell noch Dokumente besitzen, war meine Überlegung.

Folglich nahm ich Kontakt zur Westfalenhalle Dortmund auf.
