Rainbow: 7/23/1982

Here is my ticket stub from when I went to see Rainbow on the “Straight Between the Eyes” tour. I don’t remember much from this show, which was post Ronnie James Dio. What I do remember is that Ritchie Blackmore was as fast as ever on the Strat. I also recall them playing “Long Live Rock n’ Roll” and finishing up with “Smoke on the Water.” I could not find the setlist from this particular show online, but I did locate a setlist from Madison Square Garden on the same tour, which is probably similar to the show I saw.

Here’s the MSG setlist:

  • Spotlight Kid
  • Miss Mistreated
  • I Surrender
  • Can’t Happen Here
  • Tearin’ Out My Heart
  • All Night Long
  • Stone Cold
  • Power
  • Difficult to Cure
  • Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll
  • Smoke on the Water
