Joy Division Concerts: Read this first
About this part of the site:   About the tape listings:
This is the index page for Joy Division concerts - the "info" hyperlinks will take you to pages with more detailed information - including all known bootleg recordings, ticket scans, poster scans, personal  recollections, venue pictures etc

This listing is more accurate than those published in any of the Joy Division books but inevitably some of the information will be incorrect - we know they played more concerts than this for example.

If you know of a concert that's not listed here or you can provide us with a poster or ticket scan or any information please contact us

If you notice any mistakes then please notify us, thank you.
 

Sound quality is rated like this:

9   Very Good / Excellent
8   Good / Very Good
7   Fair
6   Poor
5   Unlistenable

Sound quality is out of 9 as tape quality can never be a perfect 10

The sound quality rating reflects the best source we have found for each recording. Some vinyl and/or CD bootlegs may not necessarily have the same sound quality as a low generation live tape from the same gig.

If you have, or know of, any other Joy Division live recordings please get in touch
