"Man or Myth" tour - Australia - January 1984

Comments: In January 1984, the band (Nick, Mick, Barry, Hugo and Tracy Pew) toured Australia 
as "Nick Cave - Man or Myth". "Vixo" is the only known live performance of this song, 
in an uptempo version which is quite different from the version on the Annie Hogan EP.
This is also the only tour that ever featured "Wings Of Flies".
It seems they also played "It Serves You Right To Suffer" on this tour.

"The Firstborn Is Dead" tour, 1st leg - Europe - October/November 1984

Comments: Hugo Race has left the Bad Seeds and the band is now a quartet: Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld 
and Barry Adamson. First performances of songs from "The Firstborn Is Dead". Knocking On Joe and Black Crow King versions 
from 1984 are very uptempo. I think on this short tour, the Bad Seeds sounded the most improvising.
For Saint Huck, they used backing tapes. According to an ear-witness, "Wanted Man" was played in Madrid, 
and that may have been its live debut.

"The Firstborn Is Dead" tours - Europe/USA/Japan/Australia - fall 1985

Comments: The Aussie concerts from November were gigs during the  "Kicking" sessions, and already feature some of those songs. 
Probably "Did You Hear About Jerry?" (H. Belafonte) and "Rye Whiskey" were considered for inclusion on that album. 
The setlist as listed below from Nov 23 also circulates as being from Nov 22; I am not sure what is correct.

"Your Funeral My Trial" tours - Europe/USA - September/October 1986

Comments: Barry Adamson has left, but two new Bad Seeds have joined the Bad Seeds, which makes the band grow to 6: 
Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld, Thomas Wydler, Kid Congo Powers and Roland Wolf.
In the fall of 1986, the brand new setlist mainly consisted of material from the two new albums. 
Only two "oldies" were regularly performed. Several songs from "Kicking" were never played, while only two from 
"Your Funeral My Trial" were ignored in this first tour: Hard On For Love and The Carny. 
The loose date in Munich in December is listed in the 1987 overview. The 28/10/86 San Francisco, 
Reckless Records Shop session is listed here. John Lee Hooker's "Mini Skirts" 
was spontaneously played in Detroit when Blixa's amp broke down (thanks Hans for this info).

The Italian gigs from November already include the debut of two Tender Prey songs: City of Refuge
and Sugar Sugar Sugar. Note the cover Let It Be Me, played in Hamburg.

Comments: After the "Tender Prey" recordings but before the album release, The Bad Seeds did two short tours in 
Australia and Europe, with later live favorites Deanna and The Mercy Seat being introduced in July.
July 12 was a secret gig, billed as "Australia's Most Famous Post-Punk Legend".

"Tender Prey" tour, 2nd leg - USA - March/April 1989

Comments: The setlists of the tour of the USA were similar to those in 1988, except that She Fell Away fell away. 
T.S.O.P. (i.e. The Sound Of Philadelphia) is an instrumental. Boston 11/02/89 contains two lines of Massachusetts 
from The Bee Gees. Thomas Heath wrote that in Alrosa Villa, Columbus, OH on 16/2/89, they did "Nick The Stripper" 
and "Blue Suede Shoes". Unfortunately there's no tape evidence of that.
