The band were at this time on their Down to Earth Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. The group had by this point nearly come to the end of their British dates; after this only a single date remained on this leg. They later returned for a one-off for the the Monsters of Rock Festival in August.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
