Great job Adam. As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm useless with the factual details for this sort of thing, but having seen the master list I reckon there are still some fairly large holes here. My gut feeling is that I saw the band four or five times, though I'd have to concede that they were so important to me that I might have inflated that figure to fit the emotional impact the gigs had.

I'll save you all my rather threadbare reasoning, but my hunch is that we're missing, at the very least, a significant number of UK dates in late 1985, summer through to autumn 1986, and the same period in 1988.
This could be heaven; shallow spreads of ordered lawns.

Cheers gazza, i'm sure you're right, esp re 1985 and there's also a load of stuff from Sydney before that to come out.

I've just found a reference to a show at Dingwalls with The Go-Betweens, Sept 4 1984, which is listed as the first Triffids UK show, and another odd date or two, but I'm unable to add them at the moment - I keep getting an error message.

Now added.  Urpal, you've mentioned a trip to JBs sometime, that must have been 85 given the size of the venue.

The Dudley gig was late '84 or early '85, but I can't find a record of the date at the moment. Those ticket photos I've posted were flotsam from the trawl. It was surprising to find in my enquiries that Dudley JBs still exists as a  concert venue and has a website.

Impressive job, Adam. That's quite a long list now. I'm sure there are still plenty of dates to come out of the woodwork, but that's a good solid framework.

Full line up on the Australian Made tour, from what I've read rather than from memory, was:

INXS, Jimmy Barnes, The Models, The Divynls, The Saints, The Triffids, I'm Talking, Mental As Anything.

I'm Talking, if they're remembered at all, are probably known nowadays only as the band that Kate Ceberano was in, but I've got no idea if she has any presence in Europe.

I'm Talking also notable for being a splinter group of Essendon Airport. Robert Goodge was on guitar.

Couple of minor points:
June 1 1985, the place name is Seinajoki
The May 26 1989 Helsinki gig was in Tavastia-klubi

If we're adding supports, the support on the 3 '87 tour dates I saw in Scotland were the Jack Rubies, who were actually quite good. Wonder whatever happened to them?

There's a new flyer posted on pherron's page with the following dates for 1982 - Perth venues I presume.

August 11 Albion
August 13 Broadway
August 14 Adrians

Well, the flyer is labelled as Perth gigs but the article above it says the band moved to Sydney right at the start of 1982.  Pete, if you're passing, can you let us know where you got the flyer from and/or why you think it is Perth? Thanks

Edit - flyer here, in case anyone recognises it as being of their manor

The Perth flyer was from a guy called Adrian Butcher who came across my web pages:

"While researching an article on David McComb and the Triffids for a
magazine here in Melbourne, I came across your website.
In my own collection I have some items from Perth (where I lived
throughout the Triffid's history)."

He sent me some scans. This flyer was titled '1982 Perth gig flyer'. As he had been in Perth then I had no reason to doubt him.

On a different note.....

October 23 Nottingham, Mardi Gras

Ah, I can finally put a date to this gig. I was right up pressed against the stage. It was wonderful.
I always believed it was early 1988.
I posted these pics yonks ago:
