Set lists header


This section is still under construction.

This page contains general set lists for all of Big Country's Tours. Please note that these are only general lists. All the variations that I'm aware of have been included, but this doesn't mean that I know all of them - probably far from it! I hope you find them useful.


August/September 1982

(Swindon 17th August) Main set:

Angle Park
Harvest Home
Close Action
Balcony
Lost Patrol
Porrohman
The Crossing
Heart and Soul
Inwards

Retford (September) gig - "Angle Park" played as an encore.
All throughout the concert at Swindon, the crowd keeps asking Stuart to play his "old stuff" i.e Skids songs, but he refuses. At one point, a heckler yells "f*ck off!!" in a lull between songs. Stu replies "Whaa?" and the reply comes back "F*CK OFF!!!" to which Stuart says, "Give me a break, man, I'm just a wee boy!"
