On This Day (January 25)…Rainbow Come Down to Saarbrücken

Rainbow performed on this day in 1980 at Saarlandhalle in Saarbrücken, Germany.

Ad 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. Despite the above ad strongly hinting at an American tie-in, the Down to Earth lineup was the first in Rainbow’s history to include only natives of Great Britain. This concert came comparatively early in the European leg of the tour.

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