Harry performed a solo concert at the opening ceremonies of the Uni-Dome at Northern Iowa University in Cedar Falls, Iowa.[1] The next day the Uni-Dome hosted it's first football game. As the primary use was for football, there was concern at the time by university leaders as to whether the venue should be used for rock concerts. Chapin's solo acoustic openned the door for music performances. A month later they booked Chicago and the arena went on to host many of the largest acts of the era.[2]
