Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city/country. They had landed in the USA for the first time at LAX airport on 18th May (Pete Willis was carried off the plane drunk - a sign of things to come). 'Hello America' was used as the opening song. Pat Traver's Band included Pat Travers - Vocals/Guitar, Peter 'Mars' Cowling - Bass, Pat Thrall - Lead Guitar, Tommy Aldridge - Drums. As part of Girl future Lep guitarist Phil Collen had supported Pat in the UK in March. Joe mentioned in 2012 that singer Glenn Hughes had attended this show (as a guest of Pat Thrall) and hung out with him backstage.
