I did start to notice, long 'bout the mid '70's, the opening acts DID start to be "genre specific" and more "genre-label specific". Like----

A '76 concert that had JAN HAMMER opening for Mahavishnu Orchestra(their "Inner Worlds" promo...) and then the SHAKTI line-up of John McLaughlin opening for WEATHER REPORT('76--"Black Market" promo). All on the same label, or at least one or the other on a label's subsidiary.( Mahavishnu on Columbia, a CBS records label, and Hammer on Nemperor, both Sony music arms... and Weather Report too, on Columbia).
