This show was filmed at Dylan's request. An excellent record of the 80's
gospel shows. Film was also shot at 3 other concerts around this time (19/4,
30/4 and 1/5) presumably for a project that got no further.

Dylan appears outside his hotel and signs autographs whilst answering the
odd question from an Austrian TV interviewer. The item winds up with a clip
of "Won't let go", presumably from the Vienna show. I also have two
clips from 'Rolling Stone' and 'Just like a woman' which are
from around this time.
This show was filmed by Howard Alk, Clips from 'Shot of Love' and
'Heart of Mine' are available, with more to come? I've only got a
few scant seconds from these films at the moment. I guess one of the reasons
this film has never been officially released is that two members of the
audience died in accidents, one of which cut the power to the stage for
