Gigs

A fairly big list of gigs that Discharge have performed (early 80s mainly).  If you have a date of a gig you were at and it's not listed here, then let me know.  Please include as much detail as you can remember - date, place, country, support acts, even price if possible!  If there are any dates that are wrong, get in touch also.

Dates are in dd/mm/yyyy order, for those wondering!

Note that the current tour is listed, but as most of these have not happened yet, they still have to be confirmed by fans who attend them.  It's all well and good that the tour dates have been listed by certain companies, but I remain sceptical until proper confirmation, so travel to these at own risk!

If anyone does go to them and records the concert (Audio, Video, Photo, or even set list/review etc), please let me know as soon as possible!

Notice also, there's a link to the discussions that allows you to add memories of a particular gig in its own topic.
