I dunno if anyone here is old enough to rememeber 1981.  I know I'm not. :?

But....if I had to pick I'd say it's a toss up between: Vlissingen,June 26 and Sydney, August 17. 

Why those two?  Cos those are the only shows from that year I got! :P

Bloodflower

Either Sydney or Palais St. Sauveur, both of which have soundboard recordings. I think Sydney's version of Faith is better, though, so if you've got to choose one, go with Sydney.
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

Here's my top three from '81

1981-06-03 Berlin

Hmmm...not entirely sure why I like this one so much.  Sometimes it can be just one or two songs that stand out or the vibe one feels while listening.

1981-08-17 Los Angeles
I do enjoy a really nice sounding audience recording and J.C. did one fantastic job on this one.   :smth020

1981-11-27 Glasgow
Great show with early versions of songs that would later appear on Pornography.  One of my favorite concerts.  :rocker

with hope
...nothing would ever be the same again...

Palais St. Sauveur


Date please¿?

I have 13 shows from this tour, and my 2 favorites are:

1981.07.28 I Beam Festival in San Francisco, fairly good FM/Soundboard, but the best part is the interview at the beginning.

1981..05.16 Odeon Edinburgh simply because they played I'm cold that night...

You are correct.  8-17 is Sydney.  Another excellent show from 1981.
