The didn't have Christchurch scheduled on their tour itinerary, so a bunch of locals got together & put out a petition in the record shops to get them to play Christchurch, & they sent it to the promoter, consequently The Clash found out & decided to squeeze a gig in there. The Christchurch guy who recorded the gig made the petition into the artwork. The actual petition is shown in the intro of Let's Rock Again.

Hey, I visit the site off and on, it's superb, and am still a Clash mentalist, collecting bootlegs (and anything I can get my hands on really) with varying levels of satisfaction; an obsessive for sure. Just reading your thoughts on the Hong Kong show and the frustration of gigs being pro shot and recorded but not in circulation: best show of any band I've ever seen was Saturday, February 13, 1982, at the Capitol Theatre and I wonder whether this was the ABC-recorded gig you allude to? For the site's benefit I can tell you they were supported by a very young and great Sydney ska/pop outfit Spy V Spy who "dedicated their most political song, Behind The Iron Curtain, to The Clash". The Clash came out, Joe said: "Hello, my name's Joe, we're The Clash and this one's London Calling to the faraway town."

Setlist definitely started:
London Calling
Safe European Home
Spanish Bombs ("This is Spanish Bombs in Andalucia!")

Songs they for sure played, but order unknown: Career Opportunities ("I don't give a flying fuck what the rich are doing"), Tommy Gun, Clampdown, The Magnificent Seven (great call-and-response with the crowd: "What have we got?"), Police On My Back, The Call Up, Wrong 'Em Boyo, The Guns Of Brixton (Paul had a thin stand on his bass, on the neck, which held his cigarette in between tokes), Brand New Cadillac, Ivan Meets GI Joe ("We're gonna turn the microphone over to Topper Headon"; to the huge applause: "Oh, you polite people") Train In Vain (Mick wore red shirt and black braces), Garageland, White Riot, Radio Clash, Koka Kola.

This is from memory and I've missed some for sure, judging by the sets of the day. Amazed no or few Australian bootlegs exist. I remember a chick behind me bellowing for Police And Thieves, which they didn't play. Other supports were local indie acts of the day, different ones each night. I believe this Saturday show was one of the best of the seven.

Sorry these recollections have taken so long; I meant to email ages ago. I'm only on this address 'til Friday but always at ozmedia06@yahoo.com should you wish to reply/want more details. Cheers, Tim From: Tim Gill <tim.gill[a]pacificmags.com.au>

The term Pig City was first used about Brisbane by Joe Strummer at Festival Hall in 1982. I have spoken to a number of people who were at the 1982 Clash concert at Cloudland (me included) and we all recall the words being yelled by Joe strummer at cloudland i.e. 'Pig city' a reference to Brisbane being part of a police state. JOHN TRACEY

I was at the Clash concert at cloudland. They invited Bob Weatherall (Qld Aboriginal leader) on to stage with them and he danced and delivered a rave about the commonwealth games protests. I can't remember the term Pig City being used, but Im surprised I can remember anything of the night.

Well I was there and it was great. Very hot. The band stopped and threatened to quit playing unless thefighting at the front stopped - Joe was concerned about the stage sharpies damaging the kids. A great show. punkhistorycanada.ca documents one persons experience and has a photo of the edmonton concert. Your spelling of Kinsmen is wrong - you have. Regards and thanks for thegreat site!

Yah, Yah, I know ...they signed to CBS. Some even hailed that as the end of punk when it happened. First Concert I ever saw, which always sounds cool to youngsters. However, I was 15 and really missed a lot of prior concerts and gigs (punk and otherwise) that I should have attended. Also, I was a little intimidated with the festival seating (there was some dangerous overcrowding up front), and I hung in the back for more than the first half of the Clash performance. After-all, it was only a few years after the Who tragedy in Cincinnati. The Clash paused the show and moved some people over the stage a couple times early on. The sound was much better when I went down on the floor. However, I did snap this long-shot when I was in the balcony. The largest original punk concert that occurred in Edmonton in the "old days". There was a big rush on tickets when they were released, but the show never did quite sell-out which I thought was pretty lame on Edmonton's part. I remember hearing a few hardcore people were trying to act up all punk - I don't give a f*ck - and got tossed by security before the Clash started. Now that is truly lame. I guessing attendance was less than 5,000. Ottosbro


I was at this concert and 16, my brother was in a band at the time that also opened for The Clash, not sure which band he was in at the time, maybe The Shock. Anyone else remember the "other" band that opened that night? Lynn


i was there as well , 16 yrs old at the time . some great photos of the show still circulate around town at record fairs etc . there is a photo of security removing the wood barricade from the front of the stage , while joe strummmer gives the crowd instructions , making sure everything is ok. i recall the crowd buzz , as you could see the clash walking to the stage via a upper tier jogging track .siggy

I was there too ! I slept all the way from Jasper - waitressing at Jasper Park Lodge for the summer. We arrived just in time for the show so I was completely sober and the show was still awesome...I remember those "pauses" when the wood at front of the stage collapsed and all the splinters / nails ended up in front of the crowd who were pushing ahead. I was glad to be sober in the end because I don't think anyone would have noticed me had I stumbled....cethlyn

I was at this show. 17 trs old at the time. I was BLOWN away!!Bee Dee

Hey, Love the site. I was lucky enough to see the Clash half a dozen times in 1981 and 1982--three nights at Bond's including opening night and the last matinee when we all got up on stage (my brother reminded me the other night of seeing me on stage singing "Jimmy Jazz" into Mick's mike and deciding he too had to rush the stage), Asbury Park in 1982, one of the nights with The Who @ Shea and a night in August 1982 at Red Rocks, a natural amphitheater in the Rocky Mountains outside of Bolder, Colorado.

The Bond's shows were remarkable, but the Red Rocks show was great too. The band opened with "White Riot" Mick, Joe and Paul beginning with their backs to the audience and wheeling around at the mikes just in time to nail the opening vocals. Also, Allen Ginsburg came out to do his "Ghetto Defendant" rap (he was chairing a symposium at the Naropa Institute in Bolder on the 25th anniversary of the publication of On the Road which I was in town to attend). Amazing all around. Thanks for compiling this. Jason Chervokas

Subject: Seattle Center Arena, August 21, 1982
Hey there, Fantastic site. I just wanted to let you know that the Seattle '82 date (August 21) was a hoax perpetuated by me and two friends who selfishly hoped it might bring the Clash to town since they were skipping Seattle. We knew the US tour was on and we knew the Beat was opening, so we added local Seattle punks The Fartz and printed up the signs ourselves and put them up all over town late one night. The poster was reprinted in Art Chantry's book on Seattle poster art called Instant Litter. I'm sure the scan you have came from that. So there was never a show, never a Seattle date booked to cancel. Just three kids in nearby Tacoma who hoped to see their heroes. We finally did when they came to town to open for the Who later that year. Erik Flannigan

Aug 21 South Yarmouth, MA, Cape Cod Coliseum, Hyannis
There was definitely a day or two off after the 21st (Joe's 30th b-day party, Kosmo somehow talked the hotel into letting us at the closed bar, some yarn about important people from the record label being there. I remember Joe being behind the bar pouring drinks. In between the Clash gigs Elvis Costello played in the same venue. And The Baker somehow talked me into bringing my mom to the last night, the one and only. Pulsallama supported this night. Punter

-------------------

I stumbled across your site looking for info on the 1982 Orpheum show, which I had no recollection of. I went (one of) the Cape Cod show(s) [I didn't remember that there was more than one], and saw the Elvis Costello show the following night. I was 23, and my road trip was different. I had just gotten married on August 1, and a couple of people from work were interested in making the trip, including a girl who promised that we could all stay at a friend of hers house in Dennis. There were friends of friends, and I brought my wife, so when we all met up in the parking lot, most of us didn't know each other. One guy was wearing a camouflage t-shirt. When we entered the Coliseum, we were faced with the choice of the swealtering, crushing crowd up front or the complete lack of sight and sound down back. I looked up and saw what appeared to be a press box or something (for hockey games?) with very few people up there, and started scheming for a way to get up there. It turned out that the bouncers/security guys were all wearing camouflage t-shirts, so I convinced the guy with one in our party to try to lead us up. I told him to just bluff his way past anyone with "Vinny says it's okay for these folks to go up". The first security guy we encountered told him something like "who cares what Vinny say; if Peter didn't approve it, no way". My guy was ready to give up, but I told him he was nuts; let's just go another way and drop Peter's name, which worked like a charm. The 5 or 6 of us had plenty of space and air and a good view. The sound still sucked, but probably not as much as down on the floor. I remember that standing next to me was Crass, the personality from Y102 FM (WLYN which later became WFNX 101.7). On another occasion, I got her to get me into an English Beat show at the Channel---I don't remember if that was before or after The Clash? Edward - djeddieo[a]gmail.com - Milton, MA

Aug 23 South Yarmouth, MA, Cape Cod Coliseum, Hyannis
I was looking, recently, at the summer 1982 listings for Cape Cod Coliseum (Aug 20th, etal)... I attended all the shows. I was working a summer college job, and it was just about the end of the summer, as Labor Day was closing in fast. There were 3 Clash shows in all, but recollection is they only took one night off (shows were Friday, Saturday, Monday - 20th, 21st, 23rd). In between, Elvis Costello brought his Imperial Bedroom tour through.... I seem to recall being at the venue 4 straight nights - no breaks.
I seem to recall, but may not be 100% sure on this, the opening act(s) on some of the nights were Gang Green and/or Jerry's Kids - both Boston hardcore bands at the time. 007 also supported one of the gigs, as your site mentions. I remember the shows being on fire! Loud, fast, and everyone was dancing!

Elvis Costello did indeed play with the Attractions at South Yarmouth, MA, Cape Cod Coliseum on the 22nd. Link

I found your website and it is great.

I have to say 2 things about the 1982 tour.  I was at the Sept. 7, 1982 show at the Orpheum and I actually agreed with the Globe review -- I thought they were tired and didn't have the same energy as other times I saw the Clash.  I had just seen them August 28 in Providence and that was, and still is, the greatest show I have ever seen (beating an amazing show at Bond's NYC).  They had the crowd of 10,000 as one and played with such energy it was amazing. I wish somebody else had written down and posted the set list.

My roomate at the time wasn't into the Clash and I convinced him to go to the Orpheum show.  We scalped some dance floor tix for face value (to this day, I have no clue how we got the best tix in the theatre by just showing up and lucking into somebody selling), so we were 3rd standing row from the band.  Seemed evident early on that they were tired (at the time I commented to my roomate that they seemed drunk or wasted) and it wasn't the same energy level.  The confrontation between Strummer and the stage jumper was unnerving and seemed to further sap the bands spirit.  Really, in my opinion, the Boston Globe reviewer was correct.  Sadly, that was my last Clash concert, but, in my mind, the Providence show was really the last time I saw the real Clash, the only band that mattered. Bob R

Aug 29 Agora Ballroom in Hartford (West Hartford), Connecticut
I am sure that I saw them in late August at the Agora Ballroom in Hartford (West Hartford), Connecticut, but that doesn't show up on the 1982 tour dates.  At one time the venue was called Stage West.  They were in the area at that time (Hyannis, Providence and NYC are all close by).   Is it possible that this was a last-minute schedule change or something?  MTownsend(at)adcole.com

I saw your website and just wanted to give you the date of the Clash show at the Agora Ballroom in West Hartford, CT.
It was on Sunday August 29th, 1982. I think Black Uhuru was the opener. Admission was $10.50 and well worth it. I still have my ticket. Great website. Thanks, Tom

Oct 15 William and Mary Hall, Williamsburg, Va.
I was at the Oct 15th 1982 show at William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA.  My friends and I had driven there from the podunk towns of Concord and Kannapolis, NC.  In the pre-internet days it wasn't always easy to find out about bands going on tour unless it was some shit band like Boston.  I found out about this show by listening to a Sunday night alternative radio show that I could pick up even though the station was 100-plus miles from where I lived.  I told my friends about it and the following Friday we set out for Williamsburg.  I remember getting out of our car once we arrived and noticing how every car had a different Clash song playing on their respective tape decks.  I felt like I was on another planet.  The show had General Admission seating and we wanted to be down front, but where we were at things got pretty wild.  I remember some guy pulling out a knife right next to me.  I can't remember why now.  The Clash were great, of course.  I never thought I'd be getting the chance to see them and I was stoked that they were playing first album material too and not just the more recent "hits".  They were a turing point in my life and I was never the same because of them. www.Chris Peigler

I attended both shows and have circulated my recordings of both. It may be my master recording of the Oct. 23 performance that you have heard and reviewed. I hope that helps to refine the info on your site. I'm absolutely certain. We were very disappointed the Clash only played at the larger outside show. Ned Hoey

Salim Nourallah/ getting back to the Clash...
"Brad Austin had lent us the Clashís 1st record from 1977 but it was now actually 1982. We soon found out their 5th record Combat Rock had just come out. We got that next then all the rest too and became obsessed with the Clash.


We found out the Clash was going to play the El Paso Civic Center on the way to play the US Festival in California and on May 25, 1983 we road in the blue Monte Carlo with our 24 year old 1st cousin Maad Okko

Maad was from Algeria and spoke broken English with an ear to ear grin he sported a healthy afro and woolly mustache
plus parachute pants and a tight sleeveless shirt he listened mainly to disco music. He had never heard of the Clash or punk rock music and was baffled by it all.


To document this momentous occasion i planned on smuggling a micro-cassette recorder into the Civic Center
i donít remember how this plan actually worked. I only remember being convinced id surely be caught and potentially arrested thus, missing the Clash my favorite band


Neurosis aside, once inside we took our position about 20 rows back and in the middle a perfect spot, the lights dimmed and Spaghetti western music came over the PA song. The Clash finally took the stage. We jumped to our feet and cheered. they kicked in with London Calling.


Mick hopped around like an elastic Mexican jumping bean. Paul bobbed, ducked and weaved like no bass player you've ever ever seen. Joe attacked his beat up Telecaster with ferocious intensity wearing a white sleeveless military jacket/vest and black straight to hell t-shirt.


Maad looked to us and yelled 'you like this?'. I nodded my head and thrust the micro-cassette recorder to the sky
soaking in Death or Glory. The show plays out for me now in a haze of nostalgic slo-mo bliss.


My memories afterwards are of laying under the sheets at night with the micro-cassette recorder pressed to my ear trying to re-live the moment by listening to the shittiest recording imaginable. We also begged our Mom to make us a black straight to hell t-shirt because they were sold out at the concert. She tried valiantly but after wearing her iffy labor of love to school one day i decided it just didnít look right i retired it to the bottom of my t-shirt drawer and never wore it again.
