On This Day (November 15)…Rainbow Come Down to Salt Lake City

Rainbow performed on this day in 1979 at the Terrace Ballroom in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Rainbow were at this time on their Down To Earth Tour, undertaken to support the album of the same name. The dates the group performed in early November began in the westernmost United States, slowly moving back east. In these dates, Rainbow finally performed as the headlining act rather than as an opening act, as they had earlier in the tour when acting as the openers for Blue Öyster Cult. John Cougar and the Zone served as their supporting act for this and other concerts.

There is no known recording of this particular concert.
