1982 Setlist



1982 - Setlist

As far as we know, the 1982 setlist was generally the same from show to show. There were slight variations, notably Drugs was retired and new songs Swamp and Big Business were introduced in the summer part of the tour. Also, they deployed a shortened list that was used at festivals and dates where TH was allotted less time to play.

April/May setlist (Japan):

*Tom Tom Club opening act mini-set;
On, On, On, On
L'Elephant
Under The Boardwalk
Wordy Rappinghood

July/August/September setlist (Europe & USA):
