The following is a list of Tom Verlaine live performances. The information was gathered together mostly with the help of Leo Casey with input from the Marquee Moon Mailing List.
Note: If you click on any of the highlighted show dates, it will take you to that show's advertisement or a flyer, or a ticket or whatever evidence remains.
If there is an existing sound recording of a particular gig, there will be an icon in the final column; clicking on this will open a pop-up containing details of the recording.
