What a fun look back and very interesting how they maneuvered around campaign finance laws. Thanks for sharing!

This is really cool. Thanks for sharing. The video does not reveal the reason why Fleetwood Mac dove into this campaign. I forget the details but the Senator helped out the band or a member get back into the country or something? I forget the details so someone else can explain further. The Mac was doing it as a THANK YOU to the Senator
Bayh lost in a landslide to Dan Quayle the future Vice President who didn't know how to spell P O T A T O.

Mick John and Chris got their green cards out of this I believe. Anyway it's a cool blast from the past and the band is on fire. I wish the whole show would surface.

Now this is good stuff. Who cares whether they sue one another or fire one another or put out lazy anthologies or try to sound hip on "Ellen" or get inducted into the Cheap Publicity Hall of Fame or ignore email and text or cover their bodies in raw honey? We like 1980 film footage! Yeehaw!

Very cool, thanks for sharing. Wonder if Bayh and the gang all got coked up together backstage. It would certainly give him the energy needed to meet all those concert goers.

Nice footage of FM! I wonder how John felt about this? I guess as long as he's playing his bass guitar, it doesn't matter. On edit I guess it was a good trade for green cards?


Bayh didn't win though. '80 wasn't a good year for Democrats.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to whomever found and posted this.

You have no idea how much this means to me.

This is my favorite band.

From my favorite era.

My favorite tour.

My favorite stretch of shows from bootlegs, though this particular Indianapolis bootleg doesn't seem to exist.

My dad was at this show and I grew up with him telling me memories about it (Lindsey's coked out crazy hair and eyeliner, the suit vs his 70s rockstar image from a few years earlier).

This is very special to me. Thank you for these memories.

Yup. Carter lost to Reagan.

That is so cool. I love Lou Reed era Lindsey. I think Lindsey was influenced by Transformer.

According to Mick's book, they got green cards in 1976 or '77, after visiting England for the first time in years. Upon returning the Brits were contained and the "dreaded green cards" as Mick called them were procured.

Maybe this concert was a way of saying thanks?

Cool that both pieces of band footage feature Christine songs.

Where does the show exist? This looks like news real footage, sadly.
