On This Day (December 9)…Rainbow Come Down to Albany

Rainbow performed on this day in 1979 at the Palace Theater in Albany, New York.

Ticket for the show. Retrieved from here.

Rainbow were at this time on their Down To Earth Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. The group were just days away from finishing with their North American leg of the tour; the remainder of the dates they performed with this lineup occurred in Europe or Asia.

At this gig, Rainbow were supported by the Scorpions, presumably the “special guest” alluded to on the ticket.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
