    • No prob 🙂
      Collector’s Hell says it was actually first played in Feb 1987 – so you know…gotta decide which source to go with. CH or…Nick. It’s a toss up!
      I have a bootleg of the 87 show CH mentions but it doesn’t contain all the tracks played, and no 500 Miles.

  1. Yep, 4-15-89 is when Nick announces it’s the first time they’ve played 500 miles live, and indeed the whole show was recorded and broadcast on Brazilian TV, with brief Nick interview segments intercut between the live songs. It was followed by an interview special with a Brazilian TV host on the same date.
