I wish I could get VH-1...I'd love to see this as it was about 1976 when I last saw the Kinks perform.
Cobo Arena in Detroit...Everybodys In Showbiz period Kinks!
Opening band, Captain Beefheart, Clear Spot period
What a concert, Ray emptied the contents of a 6 pack of beer on the audience and himself during his performce of Alcohol!

Hang in there -- no doubt we'll see it on YouTube before too long. Last time I saw the Kinks was the last time they played in the US -- at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert at the old Cleveland Browns stadium. I've seen Ray numerous times during his solo touring. Hasn't he been to France at all over the past ten years?
