On Saturday, August 16th, 1980 the classic Rainbow lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Don Airey, Graham Bonnett, Roger Glover, and Cozy Powell played their last live concert together under the Rainbow name. That performance was also part of the first ever rock festival to be held at England’s famed Castle Donington. Now this spring audiences can enjoy the concert in the comfort of their own home thanks to the people at Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Rainbow: Monsters of Rock Live at Donington 1980 one Friday, April 22nd. The concert, which marked the end of an era for that incarnation of Rainbow, will be released on DVD/CD combo pack and on digital platforms. It features all of the concert’s surviving video footage and marks the first time ever that the concert’s audio has been available as a full-length standalone CD. Not only was it the last time that that incarnation of Rainbow would play together live, but it was also the final show of the band’s tour in support of its 1979 album Down To Earth. The band’s set features a number of songs from that album and material that at the time was considered older. Those songs include the likes of: ‘Since You Been Gone,’ ‘All Night Long,’ ‘Stargazer,’ ‘Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll,’ ‘Catch The Rainbow, ‘Eyes of the World,’ and a number of others. The band’s complete set list for the concert is noted below.
