- Sunday Break II The best part of the show was the music. But two babies being born, 2,030 sun- burned spectators being treated and almost 75,000 ticket holders hiking to the concert provided some pretty good sideshow enter- tainment. The area surrounding Steiner Ranch on Lake Austin was the main amuse- ment. Cars inched toward the ranch with constant nudging by state troopers. Parking lot overflow stretched down the road for 1 5 miles, and the drivers lined the street on foot, armed with ice chests and blankets as they migrated toward the music in 95 degree-plus heat on the Sunday before Labor Day, September 5. Inside the concert area, Middle Earth health authorities distributed water, while it lasted, and salt tablets to control the epi- demic of heat stroke. England Dan/John Ford Coley, the Steve Miller Band, The Band, Chicago, Fleetwood Mac and some Austin locals provided music for 12 hours longer than most of the spectators remained at the concert. Relief from the roasting sun finally came, just in time for the appearance of Fleetwood Mac and the wind-up of the day-long festival. The biggest surprise of all came the next day when the concert ' s promoter, Mayday Productions, claimed that they were the vic- tims of the concert tragedy. Gate receipts showed a $700,000 shortage and Mayday ' s president, Win Anderson, blamed the loss on a massive ticket fraud. Suddenly Austin ' s " goodbye to summer " celebration turned into a major issue. Mayday was faced with four lawsuits, including one from angry ticket holders who were denied entrance due to traffic congestion. Unpaid Mayday employes also filed suit as did Steiner Ranch area residents who claimed their security had been threatened by the concert crowd. The court responded with a temporary restraining order against future concerts at Steiner Ranch. So the long, hot summer drew to a close with the heated issue of Sunday Break II. Whether on the head or in the mouth, water helped soothe listeners during the all-day outdoor event. Sunday Break II 91
