Notes:

  • May 1978 - SWW were due to play Birmingham Odeon once on 07 May, but due to unprecedented demand and a quick sell out, they were booked for 08 May too.
  • 19 Dec 1978 - the last gig of the year in the band’s home town, and the night they found out the album “Greatest Hits 1976-1978” had got to no.1 in the album charts, knocking the Grease Soundtrack off the top spot. A great gig and a big party afterwards - one of the greatest nights in the band’s history.
