Badfinger concerts
1984
compiled by Tom Brennan

After the death of Tommy Evans, Bob Jackson was asked by Ray Reneri to do a tour in the U.S. celebrating the 20th anniversary of the British Invasion. At the suggestion of Reneri, Joey Molland was invited to rejoin Badfinger. During the tour, some concert footage was shot which was used to create a promo film for Joey's solo song "Moolah Rey".
