Firefall

The Early Years (1974-1981)

Firefall Tour Archive
1974 to mid-1981

The Firefall tour information outlined below is in no way a complete or even entirely accurate accounting of live shows during the period. It is, however, the information I have been able to compile, so far, from a variety of sources. This archive will continue to evolve as I am able to uncover more information.

Dates listed have been compiled from a variety of sources including websites, newspapers, magazines and personal knowledge. Links to show ads, reviews, posters, ticket stubs and other items help validate the details listed. Links open in a new browser window. Simply close it when you’re done to return to this archive.

Dates or support documentation marked with a “NEW” designation indicate information added after the release of the printed book.

* Backstage passes marked with an asterisk indicate a partial pass taken from a collage of passes on the inside of David Muse’s horn case. In many cases, passes are covered by other passes, which only a portion visible.

      * While the ticket stub shows the venue as Memorial Hall, contributor Paul V. provided this update:
      ”Would like to inform you of a location on the Sept. 28, 1977 show which was originally at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas that was moved to the Uptown Theater at the last minute due to reasons I don't recall unless it was low ticket sales. I remember this well as I was on my way to Memorial Hall then heard it was moved to the Uptown on the radio so I had to detour to get there. Also got stopped by the police!!!!!!”
