LDB Special Series #472
Out of my 17,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I’d like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won’t be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project.
DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3’s is the right way to make me stop sharing music here.
Here is something quite special: towards the end of the tour PG played five straight shows at the Olympia, making possibly the longest stand in a single venue ever. I do not recall Gabriel having played the same venue for five nights in a row!
These were exceptionally dense performances by a band that by then had reached a perfect synch and interaction, even if the bass player was not the same that had started the tour some six months earlier as Tony Levin was not available.
I was able to get almost all dates from french traders which probably shows that these are extremely low generation copies, even if I do not have the exact lineage. The setlist did change but not that much, except that here we have the very last performances of White Shadow which was never recorded in any other 1980 tour.
These dates circulate with some confusion in the dates, but I could reconstruct which date is which through the recollection of a couple of friends who did attend these shows. One of them even got Pete¥s tambourine which he used to throw to the audience at the and of Solsbury Hill! Hopefully I can shed some light on the exact dates.
To define each date, I have called them with the intro words to Solsbury Hill. Every night Peter would start his speech in a different way, so it is clear that all 5 dates are different. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to “Five Nights In Paris”!
