The pride of Spartanburg. S C. proved why it is one of the most popular performing groups among Indianapolis con-certgoers with a standout performance at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Stepping on stage to a standing. Stomping, clapping and cheering throng of near-capacity, the six-man band cranked through more than 90 minutes of sizzling Southern boogie and left the stage with the same thundering ovations still ringing from the outdoor arena. WHAT MADE the band's performance so good was hard to single out. It could have been Toy Caldwell's incredible picking on lead guitar, or Jerry Eubanks whining saxophone and haunting flute solos, or Doug Gray's full-bodied vocals; all were outstanding. But it was probably the combination of all those things, plus the precision drumming of Paul Riddle and the steady rhythym work of George McCorkle and Franklin Wilkie which produced the highly polished show Caldwell, who lost brother Tommy sfjPJIT"- 47 r M .. 1. II .1 M 1 MARSHALL TUCKER BAND Caldwell this year in an automobile accident, was simply amazing on various nimble-fingered solos throughout the show Particularly effective was his playing on "Take the Highway." in which, Caldwell would rip off a string of quickly-picked notes and drummer Paul Riddle would answer with machine-gun like drumming TO ITS CREDIT, Mashall Tucker was able to introduce new material from its "Tenth" album early in the show without losing the crowd. The new songs, "It Takes Time," "On The Cattle Drive," and "See You One More Time" were well-done and indicate the band's sound has not changed. Unlike many other bands, the Spartanburg group came on stage and played driving, steady music for the entire concert, using only three scenic backdrops during the show as visual aids. , The scenes started off with the white stallion head depicted on the cover of the "Running Like The Wind" album as the band played the title track The scene was switched to the Marshall Tucker logo as the new material was introduced and then a western scene featuring rocky buttes was featured as the band began "Take The Highway." And for the fans who came for the old songs, the Tucker boys delivered there, too. Following the introduction of the new material, the band ran through "Heard It In A Love Song," "Ramblin" On My Mind," "Fire On The Mountain," and "Hiding In The Desert Skies." . Toy Caldwell then made his only mention of his brother during the show, commenting that "Tommy" would have wanted the band to play on. That interlude led into the show-stopping "24 Hours At A Time," which the band has turned into a concert classic. After a thundering ovation. Marshall Tucker returned and played the haunting "Can't You See." And, as with any good performance the time the band spent on stage went all too quickly. Nashville. Tenn.

London's Longest-Running Musical To Close By ANDREW WARSHAW London 1AP1 "Jesus Christ Superstar," the musical whose worldw ide success surprised even its two young British creators, finally comes to a close in London's West End after a money-spinning run of eight years. The show will end Saturday at the Palace Theater after 3,357 performances, making it the longest-running musical ever on the London stage. "In theory. I suppose we could have let it run for another five years," said the show's lyricist, Tim Rice. "BUT AFTER A while, you don't score many points for running indefinitely." he said in an interview. "Be sides, last winter the show had a rough time by its own standards," with too many empty seats Because of a contract between the Palace Theater and the Robert Stigwood Organization, the show's producers, "Superstar" could not play elsewhere in the British Isles as long as it remained at the Palace. "We have been inundated with requests over the years," Rice said from his home outside the university town of Oxford. "We felt we just had to take the show into the provinces where it will gain a whole new audience." An extensive British tour is planned for next March. THE SHOW FIRST opened on Broadway, then was launched in London on Aug 9. 1972. When Rice was just 27 years old and the composer, Andrew Lloyd-Webber, three years younger. Since then it has grossed more than $237 million worldwide. Only one other musical has run longer in London "The Black and White Minstrel Show," which opened in 1962' and ran for 10 years. But as Rice pointed out. that was a revue, not a dramatic musical. " "Superstar" has a definite plot." he stressed Two million people have seen it in London alone, and box-office takings total more than $16.6 million. News of the closing has brought a surge in bookings. "Superstar" has been translated into 11 languages and performed in 22 countries. Its success is all the more remarkable because of the trouble Rice and Lloyd-Webber had selling the original idea., IMPRESSARIOS WERE nervous about such a grandiose production with a religious subject. Rice explained. In the end, the show's popularity and acceptance by Roman Catholics and other denominations went well beyond Rice's expectations. Rice would not disclose how much he has earned in royalties, other than saying the income "could not keep me going indefinitely." BTARTt 00 Ail-. AAA $3 00. Ovtsren tl 00 NOW THtU THUtS..
