Thanks for the great posts...I don't suppose that you'd have the actual date of the krokus performance by any chance ? I like to try and keep the information as complete and accurate as possible. Thanks.

Thanks for posting this show. Their studio LPs may have left a little to be desired (Hardware and Metal Rendezvous are the best) but live, these guys were a force of nature. I saw them in 1983 in Baton Rouge, LA where they were 2nd on a bill that included The Jon Butcher Axis (1st on) and Def Leppard (the headliners).

When Krokus came out, myself and only a handful of other people got on our feet but by the time they finished their set the entire place was going nuts. When Def Lep took the stage it was clear that there was no competiton. Me, my friends and good bit of other folks left about 3 songs into their set. To this day it was the most pitiful case of being blown-off-the-stage-by-an-opening-act I've ever witnessed.

A few weeks later I read (in Circus I do believe) that Krokus was tossed off the tour. HHhhmmmm...I wonder why....
