Rainbow were at this time on their Down to Earth Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. This concert, the third-to-last on the UK leg of their tour, was the first concert of the whole tour to have taken place in Wales. It was originally set for the twenty-fourth of February. However, on that date, the group instead performed in Stafford.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
