  • 23 Mar 1975 - Liverpool Stadium, not to be confused with the football ground. It was a live music venue that also hosted other events such as boxing matches.
  • 12 Jul 1975 - the band made a personal appearance at Lingfield Racecourse near Tunbridge Wells alongside other Bell Records artists including Linda Lewis and Glitterband. Bell Records sponsored two races.
  • 18 May 1975 - Malcolm Allured, Rod Deas, Trevor Oakes and Al James attended at the Radio 1 Fun Day at Mallory Park near Leicester. Trev, Al and Rod were interviewed by David Hamilton live on BBC Radio 1. The band played at Hammersmith Apollo in London later that evening.
  • Summer 1975 - SWW played at Bridlington Spa Theatre - date unknown, but likely to have been over the summer season.
  • 26 Jul 1975 - the band were due to perform at a fundraising event for Southport FC, an event also featuring Gino Washington, The Ram Jam Band, Sutherland Brothers, Quiver, Fogg and Sassafrass, compered by Billy Butler of Radio Merseyside. However SWW, Gino Washington and Ram Jam Band did not appear due to contractual issues.
  • 22 Aug 1975 - auditions were held at Pier Head in Liverpool for two motorcyclists to be part of Showaddywaddy’s promotion team, with the riders escorting a Showaddywaddy-emblazoned bus around the country.
  • Autumn 1975 - all dates on SWW’s tour in Sep/Oct 1975 were supported by Arrows. Both bands were due to play at Eastbourne Congress Theatre on 27 Sep and Gravesend Woodville Hall on 28 Sep, but Record Mirror reported that these were cancelled. The Arrows reportedly played gigs during this time at Ayr Pavilion (28 Sept), Taunton Odeon (06 Oct), Norfolk’s West Runton Pavilion (25 Oct), Reading Top Rank (27 Oct), Southampton Guildhall (28 Oct). It seems likely that SWW headlined these dates too but this is not confirmed.
  • 30 Nov 1975 - SWW also appeared at a small church hall on the same date with 20 people in attendance. The main event at the Theatre Royal saw the band supported by Arrows.
  • 21 Dec 1975 - there was a bomb scare at some point during the evening and the venue was evacuated.
