Default Stark Raving Love was indeed performed live by Meat

Thanks to jack (MLBF) - who discovered this.
we might have a pretty good idea what the original 1981 Dead Ringer Tour looked like from these newspaper clippings.

Mind you, if he can perform 'Dance in My Pants' live there's no excuse for him not to do 'Stark Raving Love'
That's a great review of a rare show - he didn't perform much of this tour did he? And good to see where the angel costume fit in. Even then he was planning to die on stage - and still keep on going!

And we're absolutely sure it's not just a transitional guitar solo (as in the movie), like when the NLE led "Skull of Your Country" / "Let the Revels Begin" into "Peel Out" but didn't do the whole song in, like, '88?

being as they call Skull of your country / let the Revels Begin a "10 minute instrumental" - I have doubts they'd know the name of the interlude if it wasnt sung. But ya could be

So six songs in the first half:
I'm Gonna Love Her For Both Of Us
Took The Words
All Revved Up
Paradise

Six songs in the second half:
"Stark Raving Love"
Bat Out Of Hell
Dead Ringer
Two Out Of Three

Encore:
Stag-O-Lee
Promised Land
Gimme Shelter

That leaves four songs unaccounted for if this article is correct. Most probably Read 'Em And Weep and More Than You Deserve. I'm guessing I'll Kill You If You Don't Come Back and something else?

Well, if one goes by the lyrics printed in the European tour programme (which I do, because there are enough printed songs in common with the bootlegs to date, and I doubt they went out and rehearsed a whole new act for a year later instead of just cutting the deadweight), the possibilities include Read 'Em and Weep and Peel Out, at least.

(It also includes the lyrics to Skull of Your Country / Revels, Bat, Took the Words, Dead Ringer, All Revved Up, Both of Us, Paradise, and Two Out of Three, which are already accounted for.)

im assuming the 10 minute intro was skull of your country / peel out not dissimilar to the 1988 into into both of us. readem and weep and prolly kill you.

for the second half im assuming maybe they reprised skull of your country again before stark raving love and they count the revved up reprise

all guess work.
