7 Wishes Tour Dates

Postby HubieG » Thu Oct 08, 2009 11:56 am

Hello Night Ranger fans!

I have searched several web sites which list past concerts for various groups (including Night Ranger), but haven't been able to find any which include more than a couple of dates on the 7 Wishes tour. I am particularly interested in finding the date for the concert which was held at the Mud Island Amphitheater in Memphis.

If my research is correct, the 7 Wishes album came out in June of 1985 and the tour probably started around that same time. I also believe I read that the tour wrapped up in February of 1986, which would mean that the Memphis date would have been between June and September of 1985 since Mud Island is an outdoor venue.

Does anyone have any (or, better yet, all) of the dates on the 7 Wishes tour? It helps to know as many tour dates as possible in order to narrow in on the date for the Memphis show.

Thanks, in advance, for any help anyone can give and keep on rockin'!

7 Wishes Tour Dates - Update

Postby HubieG » Tue Oct 13, 2009 12:26 am

All,

Here's what I've gotten so far. It looks like the group toured Europe and Japan during the spring and summer of '85 before starting the US leg of the tour in the Western US in either late June or early July.

I do know that they played the Kentucky state fair in Louisville at some point between August 15 and August 23, 1985, and were in Dallas on the 24th, so the Memphis gig may have been somewhere during that timeframe. It would work out nicely, since Memphis is almost exactly half way between Louisville and Dallas, but that's just a guess.

Anyways, any more tour dates any of you might have for the 7 Wishes Tour, regardless of city and state, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, again, ya'll!

Bert

Thanks so much for your reply!

Do you, by chance, have a venue or event (state fair, etc.) for the Cinci show?
