Excellant work Nick,

Pity it reminded me of the Energy gig back in April '90 that I spent a fortune to get to and then couldn't go. 808, The Shamen & Adamski I'm still gutted to this day.

John :( :( :( :(

Cheers for the praise - if anybody has any additions/corrections/flyers/ticket scans/etc to add, then please do either let me know via private message/e-mail or post in this forum - much appreciated! :D

I do know that there are some missing dates/flyers for the Madness tour in 1992, some missing dates in the UK Gorgeous tour in February/March 1993 (Pete - your Gorgeous tour t-shirt lists some dates on the back - if you could type those in, I'll add them straight away!), and the Don Solaris tour in February 1997 (John - you mentioned a Belfast date and a ticket scan?) - any dates/flyer/ticket scans would be most useful.

Also, the European/US/Japanese dates are a bit skant - for example: in August and December 1996, 808 played in the Netherlands, so there's a fairly big chance that they played dates in other European countries around those times that probably constituted a mini-tour of some sort - if you were there (or if you have records of those dates) then please post/message me.

Finally, Andy & Daz have been constantly DJ'ing over the years, and the only ones noted are those that I've managed to find flyers for, or mentioned in music magazines at the time. If you can remember the Spinmasters DJ'ing at a particular venue, then please also let me know.

This is always going to be a work in progress - hopefully we can all make it a comprehensive history of 808 Live/DJ work! 8)

97 tour to come

also i'll dig any flyers and tickets out


Many thanks for the info - keep it coming!

Quick question, the dates above match those on the following flyer:

which rather contradicts this one(!):

Any idea whether Moby supported them, and they then subsequently changed the above dates? :)

Cheers for the info Pete & Markus - both the 1993 and 1996 dates have been updated.

Pete: It looks like the Nottingham date (also 21st on that poster) was cancelled/postponed (maybe until March?) with the T&C gig moved to that date?

Mark: Yup, any tickets/scans/info would be most welcome - especially with the Middlesborough date in March 1993!

Keep 'em coming! 8)
