The Damned: Live Performances - 1978

* Due to a large scale copyright infringement of my research elsewhere on this website, most 1978 information has currently been removed. *

The list of shows for 1978 should be considered as 'work in progress'.



Saturday 23 December 1978 - Electric Ballroom, Camden, London





Friday 15 December 1978 - Clouds, Edinburgh

Set: unknown.

Comments: Gary Holton on vocals. There are references to the band playing as 'The Nightmares in The Dark' rather than 'The Doomed' for this show... but no supporting evidence has been found. Flyers for the gig show that they were certainly advertised as The Doomed (see also 14 December Dundee show comments). Tickets look to have stated 'Regular Music invite you to The Doomed's Christmas Party at Clouds on Friday 15th December, 8pm - Tickets 1.50'.















Tuesday 24 October 1978 - The Mayfair, Birmingham

Set: unknown.

Comments: Appeared as as The Doomed. Support from The Fashion. Rearranged gig, originally intended for a new venue on 5 October (The Gig), that was not to required council standards by the time it was due to open. A contributor to this site wrote 'Great gig but hardly anyone was there as it was billed as the Doomed'.

Saturday 21 October 1978 - The Focus, Peterborough

Set: unknown.

Comments: Appeared as as The Doomed.




Friday 13 October 1978 - Mayflower, Manchester

Set: unknown.

Comments: Appeared as as The Doomed on the reopening night for The Mayflower. Support from The Straits and Johnny G(?) or Ivor Biggun(?).













Saturday 8 April 1978 - Rainbow, Finsbury Park, London
