Haven't heard this yet as I'm just in the process of downloading the files, but I'm a huge Tubes fan and I'm sure, along with the quality of the rest of your stuff, this will be up to your usual superb standard.
Thanks again for this and all you've done with this site.

Thanks a lot! i'm very grateful for this Tube concert. so rare to see The Tubes on a blog!
searching for years, the 1981 BBC concert who saw the light on CD in 2000 under the title:
"Infomercial: How To Become Tubular". have you got this one & can you upload it please?

I don't have that Tubes Cd but being an official release I wouldn't post it here, sorry.

What a DOOZER, mainly stuff from my 2 fav Tubes albums i.e.Completion Backward Principle and Outside Inside.
Hope you had a good break,glad your back but Titus and I plus entourage are coming over to your beautiful country on Sunday.
Many Cheers!

Many Cheers!

Thanks for this Tubes show, especially since i never got to see this one on MTV!
IMO, this show can't really compare to their more heavy & harder-edged progressive mid-70s stuff, but if you are a fan of the poppier-sounding 80s "hits" Tubes tunes then this must have been a real fun gig!
thanks for letting us all hear it!

Thanks for this notable post. I recorded the concert when it originally aired on MTV. I watched it over and over. But sadly, I had bought into the whole BETA thing, thus I have nothing now to play it on. So thanks again very much.

AtticRock said...

I'm very happy everybody enjoyed The Tubes:)
I'm disappointed you don't like Rush Titus, another band I had never had the pleasure to see live!

The Tubes, Excellent stuff. But are there any good quality Roy Harper bootlegs about? I`ve searched everywhere. No joy.
TBM`s Younger and more Handsommer brother.

AtticRock said...

That's true TBM's brother, I haven't seen any Roy Harper around...

If only this was a video comments input then people would be able to judge for themselves,and see that previous claims are just not true!

Where are the files? RS is just an error screen. :(

AtticRock said...

You realize you are asking for files shared about 4 years ago?
I will try to upload them again in the next week and when it's done you'll see it here.

I wish I can find a copy of them at the Greek Theater during the 1979 Remote Control tour. MTV played it once (way back once upon a time when MTV was worth watching) and havent seen it or heard it sense, except for snippets on youtube. Another great show from Fee and the boys. Cant get enough of The Tubes
