This page lists all known Clash gigs from 1976 with info. If you have any corrections please

July 4 Black Swan, Sheffield
'The Clash were just a cacophonous barrage of noise. The bass guitarist had no idea how to play the instrument and even had to get another member of the band to tune it for him. They tried to play early '60s R 'n' B and failed dismally. Dr Feelgood are not one of my favourite bands, but I know they could have wiped the floor with The Clash.' Signed 'A real music lover, Sheffield.'

Nov London Weekend TV - 2mins
Year in Punk Interview with Janet Street Porter - (out now on DVD)

Production ID 9C/02278
Production Title SEX PISTOLS - PUNK ROCK
First TX Date 28/11/1976

Synopsis Text Janet Street-Porter investigates the current fast-growing phenomenon - Punk Rock.
The programme sets out to examine why increasing numbers of London's young people are becoming disaffected with the rock scene and finding that the 'New Wave' bands, rather than rich, established, superstars, seem to articulate their own feelings of musical and social discontent. It looks at the rapid growth of punk bands which has followed the realisation that you don't have to be a consummate musician to play entertaining punk music and at the style and beliefs that distinguish people from fans of established rock.
Janet interviews the leading punk band, The Sex Pistols, their close rivals, The Clash and punk fans to try to find out whether this is a beat boom or just another instantly forgotten fad. She also talks to promoter Ron Watts to find out whether Punk Rock's violent reputation, which has led to a dwindling number of venues prepared to book the bands, is justly deserved, and the programme allows viewers to judge the phenomenon for themselves from film of a typical Sex Pistols concert.
Running Time 25 mins 53 secs

Supporting the The Sex Pistols...
Terry Chimes quits prior to the tour and Rob Harper rejoins the band for the Tour... Some Clash photos circulate from this tour but the venue is unknown, possibly the Winter Gardens at Cleethorpes.

Dec 1 Dundee Caird Hall
This gig never actually took place at Dundee's Caird Hall, although local record shop, Groucho's, still sells replica posters of the gig. The actual gig was played at the Dundee College of Technology Student's Union, known to one and all of a certain age, as the Bowling Alley. I was too young to get into these premises at the time, although a couple of years later spoke to different punters who described the same incident. One, Gary, winessed Johnny Rotten spending most of their set as far back from the audience as he could get before the speaker stack collapsed on someone. The other person was the girl the speakers fell on - she got a broken arm.
