English Beat Live - The Palace Theatre, Hollywood, CA 3/8/83

My band Bigger Thomas is opening for The English Beat tomorrow night at the Sellersville Theatre in Sellersville, PA. Its always a thrill to play with them and I always enjoy getting a chance to talk and hang out with Dave Wakeling and the members of the band (Wayne Lothian on bass, Rythym Epkins on drums and Fernando Jativa on Saxophone). In honor of the show I've posted a great live show by The English Beat from The Palace Theatre in Hollywood, CA from March 8, 1983.

The set list and performance is absolutely brilliant and shows off the band when they were really at the top of their game and on the cusp on breaking big in the US. This bootleg features 23 songs pulling heavily from the first and third albums with three songs from the often overlooked 2nd album "Whappen".

Enjoy and if you happen to near Sellersville, PA tomorrow then be sure to stop by.

The show seems to be deleted. Can we get it from another link possibly?
