Show Notes

The first show by the band in this city/country. An audience recording (video) exists of Rainbow's headline set. Rainbow had played two shows before this one in Isstadion, Stockholm (4th) with EF Band opening and Brondby-Hallen, Copenhagen (5th) with Dynamoe opening. The Rainbow fan club suggests Lep played this and the Gothenburg show. 'Animal Instinct' says the first show with Rainbow was in Essen, the first of 22 dates. These two shows could make up the 22 or that number may include the 22 scheduled dates from Essen onwards (the last two in France were cancelled). If you attended either the Gothenburg/Helsinki shows please confirm. It does seem strange to play a date in Sweden, go back to England and then Helsinki but Joe was back in London on the day of the Essen show recording the last vocals for 'High 'n' Dry' so it's possible they may have missed two shows for more recording time.
