Tull's last show at the Garden, their fifteenth. A number of journalists have quoted the bogus statistic that Tull's 14 (wrong!) appearences earned them the record of most performances at the (now demolished) venue. However, the Grateful Dead played there 25 times.
The correct statistic is that Tull hold the record for the most times headlining there.
