This webpage compiles as much information as possible regarding the live concert appearances of Badfinger. It builds on the list first published in the 2nd edition of Dan Matovina's Badfinger biography, "Without You, The Tragic Story of Badfinger" which covered the period 1969-1974. This website goes beyond that by adding more details, by including published articles, ads, posters, ticket stubs, promo photos, concert photos, concert memories from fans, and by listing the set list of each concert wherever possible. This webpage also goes beyond the year 1974 by covering the various attempts at reviving the band after Pete Ham's death up to and including the 1984 British Invasion Tour in the U.S.A.

The success of this site depends on contributions from fans who were lucky enough to experience Badfinger in their prime. Anyone else can help by searching the newspaper archives of your local city library and various college libraries.

We have made every attempt to credit the appropriate people whenever & wherever possible. If anyone was not credited properly or if someone was improperly credited, please contact me so I can make corrections. Also, anyone who wants to donate scans of any concert memorabilia, articles, photos, set lists, memories, ticket stubs, or recordings, please contact me.

Thanks a lot to everyone for their hard work and support to make this all possible.

*Note: all page number references to "Without You, The Tragic Story of Badfinger" refer to the 2nd edition of the book.
