Lush Gigography    

508 shows in 8 years

This gigography is based on Miki Berenyi's personal list of every gig Lush ever played, which she has kindly and generously provided to this website. It doesn't get any more authoritative than that! This is therefore a definitive Lush gigography which should finally resolve any open questions about dates and venues.

Miki is also providing, on an ongoing basis, her personal recollections for selected gigs, which can be found in the Miki Reminiscences page. The gigs which have entries on that page are indicated here with "Miki's Notes" links in the Notes column.
 
I am grateful to Miki Berenyi for her generous contributions to this website.

Notes:
  • There are five shows listed here which are not on Miki's gig list but which have been confirmed by fans with ticket stubs or flyers, or by the band members. Those shows are indicated with grey text.

  • The lineup for each gig lists only the bands that Miki actually stayed and watched (and remembered to write down in her personal gig list notes). In most cases that included the entire lineup, but not always. For Lollapalooza '92 the entire official lineup is listed here even though they are not all listed in Miki's own notes.

  • The lineups are listed in reverse order - headliner first and opening band last.

  • Many shows are also listed on the Tour Programmes page. I plan to someday go through all the tour programmes and look for date/venue discrepancies between them and this Gigography.

Sam's Lush Site includes transcripts of the band member's conversations for some of the shows listed here (click on the hyperlinked show dates on this page). Take a look, its very cool to see Miki's amazing between-song banter in print. Thank you Sam!
 

 
Prior to obtaining Miki's personal gig list, this gigography was based mostly on the following sources:
  • The starting point for this Gigography was Neil's Lush Video Page.
  • Bill's Lush Home Page - Includes many additional dates.
  • downer - the lush site - A long-standing, well known Lush site.
  • A list kindly provided by Brian McDonald of RiSH Records which included many additional dates found nowhere else.
  • My own research, such as checking the show dates listed on every ad, flyer, poster, ticket stub and live review included on this website.

Here is a very nice list of other band sites that include gig listings
