Looking for that ‘70s show

Based on various sites and resources and with the help of other fans (you know who you are!), I’ve tried to compile a list of Tom Waits shows. Although we’ve got over a thousand shows, the list probably isn’t complete and might contain some mistakes. 

So, I’m looking for help. If you have information about a live performance from the ‘70s that’s not on the list or have some sort of proof of a date (a ticket stub, news paper clipping, review, flyer, poster, …) of a show that is marked ‘unconfirmed’, please do let us know at
