Note on the corrections or additions :
There was 2 gigs in Dallas on the 3th of June 1973. June 23, the gig was in Atlanta, Georgia and not California November 8, the gig was in Saarbrücken, Germany and not Saarbruegen, France as printed in the "Frame by Frame" booklet. The bootleg which is supposed to have been recorded in Mainz on 30th of March 1974 was actually recorded in Heidelberg the day before. KC did not play in Mainz at that date.
Total number of dates : 156 (55 in Europe / 101 in North America)

Cumulative number of dates : 367 (195 in Europe / 172 in North America)
The number given by Robert Fripp is 368. His number includes 1 BBC recording and the Top of the Pop appearance on TV in 1970 (where the band was mimicking and did not play live). I do not count these dates. So one have 368-2=366 dates, on which one have to add the missing San Francisco gig in March 1972. And then one get 367. Well, this is forgetting the Norwich or Ipswich gig in 1971 and the Leicester of Worcester gig in 1972 :-).
