PIL - 15th May 1981, The Ritz, NY aka The Riot Show





This is the only PIL performance in 1981. Every fan knows the story of this famous show where the band played hidden behind a screen so that the audience couldn't see them....of course all those paying customers were not happy & so took out their frustrations by smashing up the venue & having a riot of their own.


There are 2 slightly different versions of this bootleg - I give them both to you


version 1 in FLAC is here


version 2 in MP3 format is HERE



PIL - 23rd October 1982, Granada Theater, Chicago, USA
