Spacemen 3 Gig List

This is all of the Spacemen 3 gigs that I know of. Details are sketchy in the early days, and some of the dates and lineups are my best guess, but it should be pretty much complete for 1988 and 1989. Click on a gig to see more details, such as setlists where there is a known recording, posters, flyers, tickets, photos, etc. Were you there? Leave your memories!

I’m always on the lookout for more info, so please let me know if you can help.
