  • Location / Lausanne, Switzerland
  • Venue / Palais de Beaulieu

The first show by the band in this city since June 1981 on the first 'High 'n' Dry' European tour with Rainbow.

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in the centre of the city and part of the Lausanne convention and exhibition center.

It was opened in 1921.

The venue was renovated in 2016.

This show and it's audience recording have in the past been incorrectly listed as Lassanna, Italy (which does not exist).

It turns out that the five songs on the LP "Young & Wild" were actually from this show.

They are better quality than the full recording which was also an audience recording done in a different part of the venue.

These five songs are marked on the right. The full audience recording "Lausanne 81" has all the songs but is of less quality.
