The Damned: Live Performances - 1984

* Due to a large scale copyright infringement of my research elsewhere on this website, much 1984 information has currently been removed. *

The list of shows for 1984 should be considered as 'work in progress'.






Friday 24 August 1984 - Nostell Priory, Nostell

Set: Love Song, Ignite, Disco Man, Wait For The Blackout, Stranger On The Town, Born To Kill, Do The Blitz, Nasty, Limit Club, Melody Lee, Neat Neat Neat, Looking At You. encore 1 -  Smash It Up, Noise Noise Noise, New Rose, We Love You. encore 2 - Love Song, Thanks For The Night, Pretty Vacant.

Comments: Nostell Priory 4-day music fetival. Also due to appear on the Friday - Dr & The Medics, Black Angels, Mitch, Earl Okin. However, it seems that the actual support was from Chelsea and Dr & The Medics - the published performance times being Chelsea (19:10), Dr & The Medics (20:30)  and The Damned (21:30). Roman Jugg played on lead guitar although nothing official had been announced at the time about Captain Sensible leaving the band. There have been a number of spectators that indicated that Captain Sensible was there, in the backstage area... something he has apparently strenuously denied over the years.

Saturday 4 August 1984 - Brockwell Park, London

Set: Love Song, Wait For The Blackout, Thanks For The Night, Disco Man, Stranger On The Town, Limit Club, Neat Neat Neat, Noise Noise Noise, Smash It Up, Looking At You, New Rose, Hippy Hippy Shake. encore - Anarchy in the UK, Love Song, Nasty.

Comments: Free gig. GLC Festival. The programme for this festival showed intended band playing times as - The Opposition [12:30-13:00], Pleasure & The Beast [13:15-13:45], Hi Jinks [14:00-14:30], Brilliant [14:45-15:15], Joolz [15:15-15:30], New Model Army [15:30-16:00], The Fall [16:15-17:00], Strawberry Switchblade [17:10-17:40], Spear Of Destiny [17:45-18:30], Benjamin Zephaniah [18:30-19:00], The Damned [19:00-20:00]. Captains Sensible's last gig with The Damned (for the moment).

Saturday 4 August 1984 - unknown location

Set: Stranger On The Town, Limit Club, Smash It Up (parts 1 and 2).

Comments: Not a live gig - but still a live appearance, this session was recorded for the BBC Radio 1 Saturday Live Show. All tracks from this session would later be made commercially available to purchase.
