Details:

Max Webster's first UK headlining shows were at the famous Marquee in London.

Kim plays a bit of Rush's Xanadu in Coming Off The Moon, and later the band do an impromptu bit of Del Shannon's Runaway near the end of Toronto Tontos. By this point in the tour, fans were throwing cigarettes onto the stage during Toronto Tontos at the "no cigarettes, no a-matches" part.

Even though Max's first two albums weren't released in the UK, the crowd still knows the tunes very well. Even though the band had chopped off the last chorus of Toronto Tontos for well over a year, they bring it back for these dates for their newfound fans to enjoy.

Let Go The Line is released as a single in the UK today, but they opt not to play it at the Marquee gigs.
