The authority on everything Stevie is Craig Hopkins who has spent 18 years researching Stevie's daily (and nightly) activities.
The 'Validity' column is an indication (5=gig listed, plus set list; 4=gig listed; etc) of how closely the data supplied with the clip matches that in his phenomenal books
Day By Day, Night After Night, and The Updated 2-Volume Set [MUST-HAVE for Stevie lovers!]
while the 'Page' column is the page number on which the gig is mentioned, and Page2 column is that in the 2-volume set.
AQ is Audio Quality and VQ is video quality; both are subjective.
Entries with a '+' are full or partial sets, and clicking on it will show the set list, with each tune itself clickable.
Entries without the '+' are clips made by the uploader, usually single tunes pulled from a larger set at the request of viewer.

Much appreciation to SRV Bootlegs for his massive uploading efforts!
If, as can happen in this world, a link becomes invalid, it will be marked with a strike-through.
I will be keeping any entries that become invalid for the historic record.

Austin, TX Steamboat 1874 1980-04-01 Audience, A N/A The set list on the bootleg is wrong.
From commenter Charles McGarry: these songs are not close to the right order they were played on April1, 1980 - a show I was at and recorded from the audience. This is the full 4-1-80 set list: 1.

I lived in Austin from 1977 to 1985, saw a few SRV shows at Steamboat on 6th Street, Antones on Guadalupe and one of the best was a Halloween party at the Ark, a housing coop near UT. Those were some of the best days of my life. Thanks for sharing this gem.

From commenter bluesin:
Frosty is the song at 23:00. Date was correctly logged as July 4, 1981. It was a show I produced.His distortion on the 2nd track was without pedals, wrenching is neck while he braced the axe on the stage with his foot. Amazing strength & lightning fast fingers.No others have been able to match before or after.

+ Houston, TX [BOOTLEG]
Houston, TX Fitzgerald's 1981-10-14 Audience, B+ N/A From commenter Lawrence Meyering:
1:05:52 - Tin Pan Alley - now he's down 1/2 step (Eb). the only way this is possible is if he and Tommy switched guitars. very possible 'cause SRV was still experimenting. had to be a tape edit here if this is the case.

A bit more. SRV is tuned down a Full Step here. this is why we hear him tuning more than usual. my cassette (Fitzgerald's 1980) was dropped a full step as well. this is why this recording has more balls than others. SRV was still experimenting w/dropping 1/2 step or full step. he eventually settled on 1/2 step (Eb). the Full step drop is a remarkable thing to hear. Also...he would be fighting the Strat more than in Eb. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS RECORDING! MAKING MY DAY!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

I remember this particular gig! I met SRV that night and party with him and the band until 8:00 a.m. In the morning. Fitgeralds was being managed by a really cool lady named Patty, and the place was always rocking on Fri, Sat, and during the week too. This was my main hang out in the Heights! It's located right off white oak if you have been there you know where it's at. Born and raised in Houston, Texas!!!!!!

+ Hendrix Gig
Houston, TX Fitzgerald's 1982-02-27 Audience, B+ N/A From commenter HardTexasBlues:
I lived only a few blocks from Fitz's on the same road which was White Oak in Houston, Tx. Sara Fitzgerald loved Stevie, and this was Stevie's favorite club to play at cause Sara didn't care how loud Stevie played. I attended almost every one of Stevie's shows there. About once a month, even the Texas Flood release party on June 20th 1983. I do know what Stevie used on stage. The house had 2 Mesa single 15" StudioMasters. They had a equilizer on the front. Stevie had a single Fender pre 67 Blackface Super Reverb with the bias so hot a set of 6L6GC Blackplate tubes would barely make it through the night. He would adjust the Mesa EQ to have max midrange. On the floor was no Fuzzface. A UniVibe, TS9 with an Op Amp chip that was used in the older Ibanez TS 808. Got some great pics from them days.

+ University of Houston
Houston, TX University of Houston 1982-04-30 B+ B The venue is questionable:

Steve Allen:
This is not at Hofheinz Pavilion as the description says it is. As you can see this was outdoors and Hofheinz Pavilion is basketball arena. I was at this show and at the show the night before at Fitzgerald's. I've forgotten more than I remember but I'm pretty sure this is Herman Park and not UofH.

Katherine Loggins Howard:
I think that's in Lynn Eusan Park on UH Campus at either the Spring Fling or the Fall Festival?? I was a member of the UH Program Council and we had SRV play in the park. What a Show! LD Systems provided support lights/sound and our group produced the show. Looks like the park on campus on the new stage(at the time) in years prior we used scaffolds

I think you are absolutely correct as I have a video of SRV at Lynn Eusan Park and just checking this video out, it does look like it is the park. Watching this video takes me back to when I was 18 or 19 and in fact I started to remember some details of the parties at the park just from this video. I went to UH then and I lived at Cougar Place for a short while and used to attend those park parties. I was active in student activities and would spend lots of time at the Student Union building with the big cafeteria.

+ Live On The Bayou - SBD [BOOTLEG]
Washington, D.C. The Bayou 1983-07-27 Soundboard, A+ N/A From commenter JJ talking about Dirty Pool/Tin Pan Alley:
Actually they start the song as "Tin Pan Alley" and then switch to "Dirty Pool" after a couple of minutes or so. They did the same trick also at the Tokyo show in jan 1985, but then it was more obvious, since Stevie had sung the verses of Tin Pan prior to changing. But also in this particular performance you can hear the spesific guitar parts and arrangement of Tin Pan Alley at the start. And also the change of key is obvious.

+ The Last Child [BOOTLEG]
Hollywood, CA The Palace 1983-08-22 Soundboard, A+ N/A From commenter Daniel Simon:
This opening song is Testify. And the concert is from the Hollywood Palace, Aug 22, 1983. This was a originally an FM broadcast (probably 94.7 KMET Los Angeles). The location recording is from a multi-channel professional soundboard recorded by the Westwood One mobile recording truck. THAT'S WHY IT SOUNDS SO GOOD! The sound engineer was Biff Daws. This recording may be a direct rip from a cassette recorded from the radio broadcast, but I think I sounds too good (not too much tape hiss nor FM intermodulation noise). So it may be a transfer from the radio promo vinyl record, but I do not hear ticks & pops typically associated vinyl LPs (even clean and mint records have some groove noise). My final opinion, this may have been copied directly from the Westwood One master 1/4 inch stereo tape (analog reels). Back in those days, analog reel to reel tape was still the industry standard for professional recording.?

Honolulu, Hawaii CBS Records Convention 1984-03-06 B+ B+ The date on the bootleg is 3/19/1984, but Hopkins says this is wrong in the 2 volume edition: "The pin Stevie is wearing in photos from this show reads, 'CBS Records 3/6/84' and the author has not found any evidence the show was rescheduled from that date. Sony says all the recording tape boxes read March 15, but there is no evidence Stevie cancelled his appearance in New York on that date."

Hopkins also lists eight tunes in the set before the video begins: Scuttle Buttin', Testify, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Pride And Joy, Tin Pan Alley, Mary Had A Little Lamb, Love Struck Baby and Couldn't Stand The Weather (a good Stevie set in itself).

From commenter manitou2010:
Thanks for a trip down memory lane. I was at this concert. -- When I went to Summeriest that day, I actually thought it was the night that Tesla was headlining the rock stage and was pissed when I found out some "guy" I never heard of was headlining. The minute that Stevie ripped into Voodoo Chile Slight Return, my musical life was changed forever! -- I will always remember his hat with the concho's on it. Bad ass. -- I was stationed in Guam, with the Navy, when I saw on the news that Stevie's helicopter went down in my "homeland" of Wisconsin. RIP, SRV.

From commenter blueline68:
I was at this show....Albert King, B.B King, and Bobby Blue Bland opened for Stevie and he really pulled out every stop to make sure he lived up to the honor. As is evidenced by the performance, he exceeded all expectations for me.

Piscataway, NJ Livingston Campus, Rutgers University 1986-04-15 Audience, B- N/A From the bootleg page: Taper's (bpthree) notes:
This was my first of the two times I saw SRV. This was before he went to rehab, and I kind of felt he was a little tipsy this night. The songs were jammed out forever, and I had three tape flips, which wasn't my norm. The last time I saw him was with the tour with Jeff Beck in 1989, after he had cleaned up his act.

Personally, I thought his playing had improved dramatically. Still, if one can play like this being high, then there is no hope for any of you aspiring guitarists! I had the pleasure of meeting Stevie at a record store signing on July 29, 1989 at "CROW'S NEST DIGITAL" in Naperville, IL. Easily the nicest person I ever met in the music biz. He made you feel like you were some long lost friend he hadn't seen in ten years. His autographs were beautiful penmanship, with a nice sentiment, not the normal rock star scribbles that you can't even figure out who there are, if you didn't already know. He was one of the greats, and is sorely missed.

I was there that night! It's a story I will still be telling when I'm in the nursing home, even if nobody else can hear me. We were just about to leave after a couple hours of listening to Bernard Allison when a bus rolled up out back. We had heard a few rumors and knew something was up, so we went back to our table. A couple minutes later, there is Stevie Ray Vaughan on stage! Duffy's was on Prospect Street, right across from Vitesse Cycle Shop, which is also no longer there. Duffy's later became the first Spotted Cow ice cream location. Thanks for the video and a trip back in time.

I love all these videos. thank you so much! he was truly an angel. I got the pleasure of seeing him 5 times. I have had the pleasure of meeting Tommy Shannon 3 times (one time just last month in Austin). he is just as humble as Stevie. they were closer than brothers and you can tell he truly loved Stevie and still chokes up til this day talking about him. he just sat and talked to me like I was a friend. truly amazing. all so talented and out of this world.

Richard Bullis:
I was at this show. It's the only time I've ever seen an opening band do an encore. Said a lot about SRV. Also said a lot about Robert Plant. That doesn't happen very often, if at all.

I was there! He was opening for Robert Plant. Thanks for this!

Dallas, TX Cotton Bowl 1989-09-03 Audience recording, B+ N/A There is some confusion about this gig. Hopkins lists an afternoon free show in downtown Dallas and a later gig with the Who and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

From the bootleg:
A short but sweet set with SBD like quality! It was a free afternoon show. An estimated 40,000 people were in attendance. The Fabulous Thunderbirds opened for SRV and DT,and then The Who. Mike Steinback a former bandmate of Stevie's tried to talk to him after this gig, but there were 15 girls between him and Stevie.

From commenter Cerebus38:
I was at this show. So good to hear it again. SRV played in downtown Dallas earlier that afternoon with the Fabulous Thunderbirds opening for him. While I was in the field for the Cotton Bowl show, I was about at the front of the stage for the earlier show. I swear at one point Stevie was looking at me. September 3rd was the last time I saw Stevie Ray Vaughan in concert. Wish I could've seen him more.

From commenter David Hoff:
I was there, too, and have the same exact memory. Incredibly loud, Bozzio's drums sounded like WWIII and SRV and Jeff jammed together at the end.

Saw SRV 3 times, including this tour with Jeff Beck. I was there to see Stevie, so I was happy when Jeff walked out first, ensuring Stevie would play the longer set. I sat there with my jaw on the floor, as Jeff stole the show to the point where he put Stevie in his back pocket. The crowd roared for Jeff and clapped for Stevie. I would never have believed this had I not seen it myself. I noticed afterwards, SRV always referred to Jeff as "THE best." I became a fan of Jeff that night. Then, Stevie & Jimmy's Family Style came out,which I loved. And then, just like that, he was gone. One of my heroes.

I was at this show, not to take anything from Beck, but I fell asleep when he came out.

Marshall Garcia:
