I went and looked at the footage in American Band from Prague and It looks like the rest of the footage shot by Vic Kettle.  It is clear that the audio is from that show-as Mike mentions Mr Dubcek-it is also clear, however, that Breakaway is dubbed-most likely to silent footage-and it is not clear that the footage is exacly synched to what was played.  I assume that the footage of the BBs signing autographs outside is also from Prague-but the American Band doc really mixes footage-they combine the December 1968 footage that Kettle shot (identifiable by Mike's shorter beard and lack of Maharishi robes) and summer 69 tour (longer beard and robes) into one tour.  Thus we see the BBs in Brighton (misidentified in the film as 1968 when it is May 1969) but then see the 1968 BBs on Beat Club in Bremen and then the 1969 BBs in a restaurant in Bremen, etc.

Yes, I have the 1968 footage in my collection, but the 1969 is unedited beside some clips seen in documentaries. An american band has plenty of errors, Brighton 1968.

COMMENT:

Here is some Historical Perspective on Czechoslovakia in 1968, for those interested. If I recall correctly it was Alexander Dubcek who Mike called out and acknowledged . . . and the place went ballistic!

In this overview, see the third section  "the impact in music" for the role of The Beach Boys in this segment of history.

I reckon the autographing took place in Bratislava as they are wearing identical clothing when they were photographed there.
