8. Mr. Big Baboon
Live in Atlantic City this was a televised show for SRO. The hour long special captures eight songs has the band is on tour to support the "Zig Zag" Tour. The band likes top play long musical interludes in their songs which make for some interesting arrangments as heard in "Mr. Big Baboon", but it also takes away from the potential of more songs being played. The quality is a B- because it has been transfered a few times before ending up on DVD in order to preserve it.

The complete show can be found over on the audio page. This is the MTV broadcast. Unfortunately, MTV had a "blackout" problem and some songs were not televised. Another note is that this is the first time the Hooters headlined the Spectrum. In fact an interesting note is that during Bryan Adams 1987 East Coast Tour, the Hooters opened for him on all the East Coast Dates except for June 23, 1987, the night he played the Spectrum. The trivia answer is another Philly based group, Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumberls (featuring former Hooter Rob Miller) was the opening act that night.

Thanksgiving concert at Spectrum, Philadelphia. Patty Smyth guest on "Where Do The Children Go". She actually sang the wrong lyrics. This is a mix of the radio broadcast and the TV broadcast. Songs from #11 onwards is from the TV broadcast and the rest is from the radio. This means that all songs are not in the original order. Fairly good sound. "Fightin' On the Same Side" is faded out. Available on 1 CD-R. A treat as always is Washington's Day. Eric mentioned in an interview that Bob Dylan called him and told him that this was the best song Eric ever wrote and that Dylan wanted to cover it. Another show I was fortunate to be at. The crowd was very loud. The band also had to play Karla twice as footage from the concert would be in the video.

A Conspiracy of Hope was a short tour of six benefit concerts on behalf of Amnesty International that took place in the United States during June 1986. Held not to raise funds but to increase awareness of Amnesty on the 25th anniversary of its work for human rights. The final show at Giants Stadium show was a sold-out, all-day event, running from noon until 11 p.m., broadcast on MTV, and at an outdoor stadium rather than the indoor arenas used for the first five stops

Recorded directly from the television broadcast and transfered to dvd. This package features "Who's That Girl" an older song that can be found in some of the earlier recordings on this site, but this is one of the final times the song will be performed live as the bands library of somgs grows with the release of "One Way Home" in about another year and a half.
