Oh, I take no offense at all. Putting in the dates and venues for each stop on a big tour is very time consuming and there is so much else to do. Especially time consuming if you want to be sure to get it right as dates that were announced fairly often ended up changing so you can't necessarily trust everything you find. Reconstructing these things can be very tough.

Another difficulty is that many venues are now gone or have changed names, and sometimes I just can't find info (or info that seems trustworthy) about whether there has been a name change or the venue has been torn down or the building is there but no longer a theatre. You might (or might not) be surprised by how often I find conflicting info on different sites. Even finding the right name that was used at the time is sometimes tough if I cannot find a program scan somewhere. Sometimes I leave out venues and dates because I cannot find any info anywhere about some venue at which a tour played beyond Variety listing the tour as having played at the venue on certain dates, or at least no info with the name listed by Variety.

I will try to get around to adding the O'Keefe dates shortly.

Actually, given how much time I sometimes spend on adding dates and venues, it's good to know that someone is actually looking at that info. :)
