On This Day (May 14)…Difficult to End in North America

Rainbow performed on this day in 1981 at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.

This was the last confirmed date at which Rainbow played on this leg of their Difficult To Cure Tour. A ticket for next day’s concert only has Pat Travers, their co-headliner since early March, listed. It would also be difficult for the band from a personnel standpoint; guitarist Ritchie Blackmore got married just two days after this date.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
