Eduscho-tour 1977

Wilfried Mende, former president of the German Slade fan-club, sent me some photos from Slade’s Eduscho-tour in 1977. He doesn’t know who the photographer is, so if anybody out there knows, please contact me so I can credit the pics to him/her.
The Eduscho-tour was sponsored by the German Eduscho Coffee company. The bands involved were the Austrian disco-band Supermax, the Dutch lightweight country/pop band Pussycat (built around the singing Kowalczyk-sisters), Rubettes and then Slade as the top act.
Wilfried Mende saw the show in Hannover and he told me that there were about 2,000 people in the audience. Slade didn’t get on stage until after 11 p.m., though, and by then half of the audience had left in order to catch the last tram! The PA-system was a catastrophe, Nod’s mike was broken and Jim characterized this tour as “worse than World War II”. But at least the photos are great. Thanks, Wilf!
