A quick request. If you plan on downloading this and putting it on your YouTube channel or your own bootleg page - I don't mind. But a credit to this website where you found it and a link back to this page would be really appreciated. It helps me gauge which artists are popular - ie more chance of other restorations coming. Don't just steal it, cut out the intro and outro and take the credit. Thanks.
Well...back when I did this it was believed the last night of the tour - which this gig clearly IS - was in Calgary. But following someone commenting below that that the last night was actually in Edmonton, Canada on 12 November 1980, I started doing some detective work. THIS is that gig. So the date is RIGHT but the venue is WRONG.
Mislabeled as Calgary back in 2013 when I found this (or was sent it, I forget which). I am pretty sure back then, online sources also had the last night of the tour as being Calgary but that has been corrected in several places since. Apparently the 2 dates were transposed when the tour was originally announced but later changed so Edmonton came at the end.
I am indebted to the poster in the comments for bringing this to my attention, and also a good friend of mine, Jeff Tolva, for helping to clear this up, and also providing the 2 images below as proof that THIS gig is actually from the Kinsmen Field House, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 12 November 1980, and is definitely the last night of the tour - as you can hear Gary telling everyone that before the final encore.
Numan released his second solo album "Telekon" in the Autumn of 1980 and embarked on his second major tour in 12 months - and his second in the USA and Canada in 7 months. This recording features the full set from the very last night of the Teletour, after he'd already made up his mind that he would retire from touring. The show gets better through the set I think, and the last song in the set, We Are Glass, is especially exciting with lots of analogue synths squawking away.
What Was Done
This is a soundboard recording and had deteriorated with age a bit. EQ'ing and remastering has brought out the best of it I think and it's now far more listenable - it certainly proved popular with Numan fans.
UPDATE 2019: While preparing this old show as separate files for a donator to the site, I found I could now improve the sound quality further, over what I’d originally done to the recording back in 2013.

Supporting The Site
If you want to support the work I do on these recordings, and the site, and (if you wish to) obtain separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s of this restoration for less than the price of a coffee in return, lossless FLACs or even a lossless copy on CDR, head on over to the Rewards For Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. There is no obligation to do so of course - you can take the file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay open, and helps me do more shows. Either way, enjoy the show.
