Badfinger concerts
1981-1983
(a tale of two Badfingers)
compiled by Tom Brennan
with assistance from Dan Matovina

After Badfinger failed to come up with enough songs to satisfy Radio Records executives for recording a 2nd LP to follow-up "Say No More", the group fell apart. Joey ended up putting his own version of Badfinger together by recruiting some of his friends. From this point on, Joey & Tom would never perform together again. From 1981-1983, two different line-ups of Badfinger co-existed.

In 1982, Mike Gibbins relocated himself in Detroit, MI. He invited Tom to come over from England to form a new version of Badfinger (noted as "Tom Evans' Badfinger"). Eventually, Tom persuaded Bob Jackson to come over as well (in May) and a new line-up was formed with guitarist Adam Allen in Milwaukee, WI.

Tom Evans continued touring with his version of Badfinger with two other line-ups from October of 1982 until October of 1983. Tom committed suicide the next month in November, thus ending another era of Badfinger live performances.

Reed Kailing (guitarist and vocalist): "We had this one show in the middle of Montana where we pull up and they're having target practice against the building. We go in the dressing room and there were bullet holes in the walls. Someone had carved in the door: 'We played here. We were a band in red jumpsuits. WARNING: Do not wear jumpsuits in this club!' We're thinking, 'We're gonna be killed!' Then the bar maid asked if we packed guns - you can imagine Tommy hearing this - but it was so late, we figured we'd better stay and fulfill our contract. So we do the gig and they absolutely loved us. We ended up doing three nights instead of two. We were the talk of the town!"

We had gigs at the Bitter End in New York that went on until four or five in the morning, with lines still around the block. The club owner was ecstatic. He said, 'When are you guys coming back?' I was telling Tom, 'See, you're doing it!'"
