The Bangles - Live In New York 1986

This is the second live concert by The Bangles featured here on Beehive Candy.

I was surprised just how popular the 1983 concert has been in terms of downloads, this however is from the band around their most popular period, with Manic Monday, and Walk Like An Egyptian becoming major hits for the band both sides of the Atlantic.

This gig took place in New York, USA, during 1986, sorry I do not have venue or date details.

Comments: It's great to see The Bangles touring in 2009, albeit limited to gigs in the USA at present.

I have always been a fan of all girl groups, especially rock orientated, they just seem to bring a spark and freshness to the music, and challenge the sometimes worryingly male dominated music scene.

The Bangles worked very hard in the 1980's, toured far to much, and never took their success for granted, it's great that after a fairly ugly break up, they reformed and seem to have learnt the lesson regarding being on the road for to long.
