I will say that I'm not too sure to start with, but if you're reffering to the one that still had Dianno in the band then it probably was just a shorter show, they didn't have much of a back catalogue with only 2 albums at the time. (possibly one and another on the way?).

So it's likely that it was a short show.

Yes, this was in 1980 and EMI wanted to film a "concert video" to promote the band, so the full show that was performed and recorded is 7 songs. However, given that it was a show specifically designed to be filmed and used for promotion, it does not necessarily mean this was a standard setlist for them at the time. In fact, it wasn't. I have a bootleg of them from Scotland that same year in which their full set consisted of 11 songs, but one of the songs was "Transylvania" and it was played twice -- in the middle of the set and again as the encore. :mrgreen:

thanks rickhawk. it was really only 6 songs because ides of march is just an intro that last 30 seconds.

i miss transylvania. they should bring it back. they used to play it all the time. i love how on the Ruskin charity show Paul tells the crowd they are playing an instumental (transylvania) and they cheer loud and he goes "thanks alot" or something. :lol:
