LIVE IN BRUSSELS, BELGIUM 1982
Superb quality from FM broadcast tho' nobody seems to know who aired it!
from Fight This Sickness Find a Cure blog! A relatively new site for me . . . . . . they feature quite a few fine albums and links to ROIOs and came across them through the other guys at Floppy Boot Stomp and Voodoo Wagon that I support here and especially as they had featured a couple of XTC recordings lately. This show starts with perhaps the best live version of Runaways I have heard!
This is a show from the final XTC tour (this concert was broadcast on FM radio), from a gig at L'Ancienne Belgique, Brussels, Belgium, on the 7th March 1982.
The last major hit of XTC's touring phase was "Senses Working Overtime," the first single from their double album English Settlement and a top 10 hit in 1982.
At the peak of their popularity, the band embarked on a major tour, but Andy Partridge suffered a mental breakdown on stage during one of the first concerts of the tour in Paris on March 18th, 1982. The European and British dates were cancelled and after completing only one show in San Diego the whole US leg was also abandoned.
