In May 1981 the Enz played Austin Texas and Memphis.. trying to find the exact dates and venues.... it would be late May around 20,21 and 22nd if anyone attended the show or has reviews of the venues please email me. Thanks PG
Could this be the Texas gig You're looking for?
Sunday May 24th 1981, Agora Ballroom, Houston, Texas.
Do You know about the june 1st 1981 concert at the Agora Ballrom in Atlanta?
Yes have the Atlanta one and spotted the Houston one-and thank you for helping out. Just the Memphis one is the hard one...we can almost lock in the date it's really the venue that's a small problem.
We are still finding a few new shows, just oddball additions to tours and usually smallish pubs etc. So the list grows... thank you though for the help this is appreciated.
I was at the show in Memphis in 1981, along with approximately 5 other people! :~) I had never heard of Split Enz, but my friend had, and was adamant about going; I agreed to go with her, regardless of the impending rain. The concert was part of the Memphis in May celebration, and was held at an outdoor amphitheater (I believe it was at that time part of Memphis State). I don't remember much about the show, other than they were fantastic (and the rain!) - it got me following Split Enz for the rest of their career.
They did play The Buccaneer in Memphis on May 27th 1981. I'm not in the office at the moment but I think the memphis in may open air was next day (28th).
Imagine my surprise to see the Enz played a show here in Memphis! Whoa. May 27th was on a Wednesday so it definitely wouldn't have been a part of Music Fest, that's purely a Friday/Saturday/Sunday event.
memphis gig all sorted out while back, found our work sheet. But thanks.
