Original notes:
Here's a Pat Benatar show from the late 1980s...probably from late 1988, digitized from the syndicated radio show discs.

The vinyl was mint, virtually unplayed, so the sound quality is top-notch. There's a similar (but not identical) show circulating on the Internet as "from the Westwood One Superstars In Concert" attributed to Philadelphia with a date of November 10, 1988...but this differs in several songs. It's likely that WW1 broadcast the show several times but with different running orders, and swapping out several songs. I'm not sure if the date they list for that show is the broadcast date of the syndicated show, or the date of the actual concert, so I'm not listing a date. I also haven't compared the tracks to see if they're from the same source. If you have it, perhaps you can check and post something in the comments?

The Tower Theater is in Upper Darby, a suburb of Philadelphia, so I've listed it with the name of that township.

As usual, I've included scans of the cover, cue sheet, affidavit, and a record label are included. I've tracked the commercials and the Westwood One breaks so that you can exclude them if you're not interested.

Additional notes:
Myron Grombacher gets no mention in the band introduction at the end 'One Love' but I'm pretty sure it must be him.

Considering all available information it should be safe to assume this concert was indeed recorded at the Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA on November 10, 1988.
