Rainbow DORTMUND Januar 1983 XL 1546/8





plus two more labels showing the same design as above: 1547 and 1548 A







(Completely incorrect) Claim from the back cover. Points for keeping up the German spelling of the month – that doesn’t make it any more true though. The real final date of this tour happened on December 1st 1982 at Pabellon De Deportes in Madrid,  Spain. Although the band performed 11 concerts in Germany that November, none of them were in Dortmund. The correct date is likely – as usual – from one of the Japan shows – in this case, likely the final one at the Budokan from 22 October ’82.
