The BOLDEST attempt thus far on the internet to reconstruct Bodine's gigology: a list of every single live performance ever seen by more than 20 attendants.
Why 20?
Why NOT?
Just make sure you leave date, place, venue, line up and--if you have the time--setlist here!

Here is what I found in my old magazine collection.Most dates comes from OOR, Aardschok, and a fanzine called Heavy Metal Demons.There are also some dutch newspaper archives online where you can search for some reports about Bodine.I found the idea of a "Gigology" very interesteing, as I´ve done the same thing some time ago for my all time favorite band "Trance".Sure the old metal fans know this band as they have played lots of gigs in Holland,too .I´m still looking for more dates from Trance, also old tickets, fotos or just infos about an old concertdate.Check out : www.trancemission-music.com
Same goes for german group Accept.I would be very pleased if someone could contact me with some more informations.
Of course I don´t know if all of the listed gigs really took place.

Shockpower--I am deeply impressed by the amount of effort and diligence you put in making this list! Thank you so much! I am currently updating the Gigology using a similar format as the song list (only not sortable yet). it will take a couple of days though--loads of manual work.

@ Bridge1961: The overview makes me start wondering where I was hanging out in the touring days of Bodine and if I was ever close to a concert, wasting my time on something that now seems trivial...

Right Jan, the same for me.
I started attending concerts to the end of 1982, some more in 1982 and really a lot from 1984 on.
I started also reading Aardschok.
But then no internet and I fucking missed a real lot thus.......

Just a small point of dispute: the gig in Ulicoten shows another date on
the ticket posted earlier.
A matter of investigation ;-)

Hallo Jan,

the date from Ulicoten 17.7.1982 seems to be right.I´ve taken it from an advert from Aardschok magazine.This was probobly a headliner show, the one with Picture some months later from the ticket was a support show.

Cattle Trade in Ulicoten was back then something like a "Hotspot" for Hardrockconcerts.Lots of bands played there, like Accept, Trance, Mercyful Fate, Vandenberg, Avalon...
Weekend 9.& 10.October 1982 must have been a festival weekend.9.10. played Picture and Bodine, 10.10. played Accept and Vandenberg

Found another gig :

17.2.1984, Den Bosch, Theetuin

This date was taken from Hitkrat magazine, so maybe they`ve also reported in their Betonmolen kolumn about Bodine.There was really heavy stuff featured like Venom and Mercyful Fate, so why not Bodine ?

Hi Shockpower,

Thanks for the clarification on Ulicoten! I'll correct it shortly and add Theetuin in Den Bosch as well.

I went through all the Hitkrants at the library of MuziekCentrum Nederland, but the Hitkrant's Betonmolen never featured Bodine!
In the next three years, I am planning to publish the stuff I did find--with a 30-year delay. I think that with help of the excellent MCN Library index I can statistically prove that Bodine was heavily ignored by the Dutch music press compared with Picture, Highway Chile and Vandenberg...
