40 Year Itch : Where Are My Boys?

On February 18, 1974 10cc opened their US Tour at The Club Richard's in Atlanta GA. Promoted as "the  most highly acclaimed group to appear on the American music scene in years", this Manchester band played songs from the debut album, as well as their yet to be released Sheet Music, including "Wall Street Shuffle" , "Old Wild Men" and "Oh Effendi".

Some of the songs played:

Speed Kills
Sand In My Face
Oh Effendi
Old Wild Men
Ships Don't Disappear in the Night ( Do They)
Fresh Air for My Mama
Silly Love
Headline Hustler
The Wall Street Shuffle
 Rubber Bullets

According to 10cc's own website on March 14,  bearded drummer Kevin Godley took ill and the rest of the tour had to be postponed until May. 10cc were scheduled to make appearances on "The Midnight Special" and "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" which did air a video 10cc filmed for "Headline Hustler".
