Hey guys,
   Can anyone provide some info regarding two different 1984 TV appearances?

   -Rock Rolls    (2 songs)
   -Rock Palace  (4 songs)

 I just need to know the month of the tapings and if these are American TV shows or international.

Thanks in advance, more questions coming soon!

Cheers,
    Robert.
The info I found on YouTube says the 2 songs are from "Rock Rolls On". A Dick Clark special from 7.21.84.
Not sure if that's the air date or the day of the recording though.
It's lip synced so I would guess it was done in a studio somewhere in CA or NY.

I think the 4 songs are from "The Palace, Hollywood CA, May 17th 1984".
I don't know what show they appeared on though.

 Thank you! That's a big help.

And the clip of them doing "Ain't That A Shame" on an awards show is from The Grammy's Feb 27 1980, correct?

Doing a bit more digging and it looks like these four songs are not from The Palace, Hollywood CA, May 17th 1984.

At the beginning of "She's Tight" Rick & Roy Thomas Baker (yes, that does seem to be him!) mention that after the filming the band is going overseas on a USO Tour. This places the TV taping within the first week of January 1984.

The only date they played in 1984 before leaving for the USO tour was Jan. 1st at the Roxy in Ft Worth TX.
They played Baton Rouge, LA on Dec. 29th at a place called 2001.

My only other guess is that it was recorded in 1983 and aired at this time, 1st week of Jan., and the comment was there because of that…
Was the show they were on was called "Rock Palace"?

That's what I'm thinking as well.

We'll get to the truth eventually!
