Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city. A decent audience recording exists of this show. The first circulated show from the 1981 tour and the first live recordings of 'Another Hit And Run' and 'Let It Go'. The band played a small intro part before kicking into "Rocks Off". Joe mentioned the the crowd that the new album 'High 'n' Dry' had just been recorded and would be released soon. An audience recording exists of Rainbow's headline set.
