    Default BT0 - New 5150 tour rare footage



    I wasn’t sure whether to post this in here or not, but it was the 5150 tour and I consider this footage pretty cool and rare. If it’s not suitable for VH discussion, feel free to move thread.

    Love looking at this stuff especially the audience shots of the various hairstyles, the clothes, the girls, etc.. It takes you right back to 1986. A great time to be alive!

    With the lack of VH video footage, we can't really be picky. Did BTO reslly do all 106 shows of the 5150 tour? Btw, that's a massive amount of dates for a tour that didnt even go overseas.

    I think I had a shirt from them that said "Half a Ton of Rock & Roll" or something like that. The ironic part is it was an XXL but shrunk down to a youth medium on the first wash. I enjoyed it 1 time.

    Pretty crazy to think that BTO was not VH's first choice as opening act for the 5150 tour.
    Sam and Ed Leffler wanted Sam's idol, the Godfather of Soul James Brown to be the opening act. I think Brown's management wanted $100,000 per gig, which was a ton of money back then, and they couldn't make the deal.
    BTO's quite the change from JB.

    And only 3 of those dates were in Canada i think. They played every market in America that would have them. Also, they played multiple nights in a bunch of markets, especially on the 2nd leg of the tour.
