Rainbow were at this time on their Down to Earth Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. The group were currently working their way across the continent of Europe. Just over a week later, they would reach England, the home country for all five members (for the first time, as prior to the Down to Earth lineup Rainbow had always had at least one American member).

This concert is known to have been recorded and is in circulation online.
