Hal hadn't earned the right to 'play the way he wanted.'    He was the newest member, and in spite of rehearsals and guidance (strict guidance  ;)) by MK, he'd break out and do what Hal wanted to do during performance, thus upsetting the rest of the band.    And yes, he was fired.    Given a choice, but when he continued to want to be the divo, he was fired.     :clap
But a spoonful of forgiveness
Goes a long, long way
And we all should do our best
To get along

According to ER the concert on 13th November in Detroit has been cancelled and moved from a 20,000+ seat venue to a 5,000+ venue!   Expectations were obviously too high!    :-\

Next time he should ask his (AMIT) fans where to play. In other countries they are waiting for a concert since years, full halls guaranteed ! But maybe they just don`t like BD in Detroit   ;)

I didn't know he was upsetting the rest of the band

Of course he was sometimes a little bit "OUT" the band 'style (but was'nt Jack Sonni more ?), but on the other hand I find that he evolved in the good way betweeen the MM tour and the LOG tour (maybe with Mar'ks advices ? ;)) :
listen to his solo on Portobello belle : awful (and somtimes completely out of tune) in 80-81, and very tastefull in 82-83 (the MFN comp version)

I also like very much his solo on TYL, far better than J. Sonni, or P. Palmer IMHO
his licks at the end of Industrial disease, and intro to Expresso love are very good IMHO
his electric licks on PI are much better than Sonni or Palmer IMHO
I prefer his tone on Romeo & Juliet than Sonni and Palmer (awful distorded tone)....but OK, I prefer Richard above all  ;D

And last but not least, he was the only DS 2nd guitarist "allowed" to play :
1) the expresso love rhyhtm riff intro (on MM and BIA tour, it was Mark)
2) some (very tastefull IMHO) licks on Sultans ! (and being the only one guy quoted on this song !)

Where did you read/heard that was the reason?

As far as I know nobody gave a reason about Hal Lindes departure of the band.
You might get lucky, now and then

i believe there is an early interview with the band (excl. mk) on the BIA tour where they sort of discuss on his departure...
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....

A bit late to update this as I only joined.
I was in Vancouver, Seattle, Portland.

Late addition.....I'm heading up to Vegas tonight.  MIght be awhile before they come back to the states, so what's a 3 hour drive on a weekend in comparison?   

Hot or What would be a great fit, but I don't really expect it.

Setlist?  ;D

Hope you had a great time. Looks like MK played with Dylan again, "Beyond here lies nothin" (again, they played that in Bournemouth)
