south america

Christie has played South America more often than any other continent, having been there on at least seven separate tours. Their following was so huge they were often given presidential treatment in the countries they visited, including military salutes and police escorts. Invariably, there would be thousands of fans waiting to greet them at airports.
    In Argntina, they even had their own TV show, complete with dancing girls and the obligatory comic comperes, called Matinee. The band's last tour before they broke up was in South America — and even with a different line-up, the shows were sold out.
    Many South American fans still have fond memories of the visits by Christie.
