Rainbow: Monsters of Rock 1980; 30 Min Concert

Rainbow headlined the first Monsters Of Rock festival with the new line-up in August 1980 (a live compilation album from the show was issued). However Cozy Powell didn't like the poppy direction of tracks such as "Since You Been Gone" and the festival was his last show with the band. Anyways, it was a great way to end their "Down to Earth" tour.

The film below is not the complete concert, but still a great half an hour of Rainbow performance.

Other names on the bill that night was Judas Priest, Scorpions, April Wine, Saxon, Riot and Touch.

Ritchie Blackmore - guitar
Roger Glover - Bass
Cozy Powell - drums
Graham Bonnet - vocals
Don Airey - organ
