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 waitsconcerts@gmail.com.

Dutch Dogs list back online

 The Dutch Dogs list has been off line for a while, but is now back up and running. The site contains the most comprehensive list of Waits concerts and radio- and tv-interviews available on the internet. A must-have bookmark for all Waits fans and collectors. 

Although the list is impressive, it might not be complete, so if you have any additional information about live performances or recordings, do let the Dutch Dogs know.
