I was at this show. The venue was across the street from a crack house in a ghetto. It was the first time I met Rory and the last time I ever saw him perform. There were only 42 fans in attendance due to it being a late addition to the tour. I counted the "crowd." Rory still played like it was a national stadium packed with people.

If there was a crack house across the street, I didn't know about it. The neighborhood where The Omni was located was a bit sketchy, and scarier after a show was over, but I wouldn't say it was in the Ghetto (you could get to the real Ghetto by walking a few blocks away though). I saw several excellent shows there [Jack Bruce w/Ginger Baker 1989, Neil Young & The Blue Notes {the early version with Talbot + Molina before Neil replaced them}, Leslie West, Blackthorne w/Bob Kulick, Hot Tuna w/Pete Sears] in addition to Gallagher.

Yes, a very small crowd that night, but a good show. I had won tickets on the radio by being to the first to call up when the DJ played some Rory (actually, not one of Gallagher's own records, but a session he did for someone else, but as soon as I heard the slide guitar...). Two nights later in SF the house was a jam-packed sweatbox.
