Video: Divine Madness – Bette Midler Interviewed On Nightmoves TV Show Australia By Jon Peters

Bette Midler promotes her new movie, Divine Madness in Australia. She’s interviewed by Jon Peters. I wonder if that’s the same Jon Peters Barbra Streisand used to date. Boy, was he a bad boy and a character.


Nightmoves was an Australian weekly late-night popular music series, hosted by Melbourne rock DJ Lee Simon. The program featured music videos from around the world, studio and location interviews with local and touring acts, and film reviews by noted Melbourne critic Ivan Hutchison. In later years the series presented a number of hour-long in-concert specials featuring leading Australasian acts such as Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, and Split.Enz, and a number of these were recorded in stereo and simulcast in FM stereo on local rock stations in each capital ciry. The original series theme was Bob Seger’s eponymous song, but this was later replaced by an excerpt from Steely Dan’s “Parker’s Band”. The series was produced and broadcast from the studios of Channel 7 in Melbourne, and was shown on most Seven Network stations. Sadly, although the series.chronicled one of the most vibrant periods in Australian rock, much of the series was broadcast live, and few if any master tapes have survived. A DVD compilation of the series was issued in the 2000s, but this was largely sourced from surviving domestic off-air VHS recordings of the show.

Video: I Shall Be Released – Divine Madness – Bette Midler -1980

Mister D: Ahh!!!! Another classic, Saw her do this on Broadway, Divine Madness, Those that missed the early concerts will never fully grasp how electrifying she was, especially on certain songs. My body would tense up, I’d be on the edge of my seat, it looked like it hurt her to put so much emotion in a song. For most of the concert, I’d be drained of energy, so I’d have to go back, but the same thing always happened. LOL

Video: Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty: Rainbow Sleeve – Divine Madness

This is a Tom Waits song Bette sang in Divine Madness that was left off the soundtrack. A gem of a song. She has always been his best interpreter. It just seems logical for her to record an album of his tunes.
