Introduction
The Couldn't Stand the Weather Tour travelled through North America, Europe, Australasia and Japan, during 1984 and 1985. Staged in support of their second album Couldn't Stand the Weather, the tour was the band's second of which to visit Europe, and their first to visit Australasia and Japan. The band had already achieved international fame when their debut album, Texas Flood, was released in June 1983. As the subsequent supporting tour progressed, the group's success was confirmed as their shows frequently sold out and consistently left their audiences amazed and gratified. Although they never followed a set list, all of the songs from Couldn't Stand the Weather were played at least once during the tour, and as many as eight of them were included in each of the band's performances.

Consisting of 9 legs and 147 shows, the began in Southampton, New York on 10th March 1984 and ended in San Antonio, Texas on 4th May 4 1985. The first three legs alternated between North America and Europe, before legs 4, branded as "Fall Foliage", incorporated a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall, which was recorded and later released as an official live LP in 1997. The band's 1985 album Soul to Soul, which included the addition of keyboardist Reese Wynans, was recorded during breaks in the tour. Although the tour received a range of reactions from critics, it was generally well-received. Critics regarded the group's Carnegie Hall appearance as one of the tour's most memorable performances.

The band recorded their next album, Soul to Soul, from March to May 1985 during breaks in the tour's final leg, which incorporated a third stop in Canada and a trip through the southern US, before the closing concert at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio on 4th May.
