That was back in 1984 for Vangelis, I believe. Correct? He rarely performs, so that must have been special, especially with Jon Anderson there. I'm jealous.

I'm in New Hampshire, an hour north of Boston, so I understand the significance of the show, as Vangelis hardly ever came to the U.S.

It must have been. Lila was there also. I'm not sure if he performed anywhere else. I would imagine he would have somewhere.

I saw that the Strawbs electric were touring east Canada and U.S. Just looked, maybe not close enought for you. GibsonGirl, maybe your nearby? They're pretty good live.

Yeah I remember seeing the show. We had front row on the right hand side of the venue. When Vangelis called out for Jon Anderson to come up to the stage, he had to walk right in front of us. We could have tripped him, LOL. Only problem with the seating was that Vangelis was on the left hand of the stage.

Now that you mention 1984, I'm wondering....... when was Chariots of Fire released. Maybe it had something to do with the Academy Awards?

This is Lil Pal's dad by the way.

Yes, Chariots Of Fire was 1981, but he never performed live in the U.S. that year.

It actually wasn't 1984 that he made the appearance in L.A. - it was 1986. I just checked. I see that he performed one of my favorite songs of his there, To The Unknown Man.
