Kajagoogoo Ticket Stub Collection – Latest Update
Today’s post takes a long running and familiar KajaFax theme and gives it a different perspective….
For some time now, regular readers will know that we have been featuring our ever increasing collection of tour ticket stubs on-site, and have in our collection amassed tickets from both the ‘White Feathers’ and ‘Islands’ tours as well as reunion tickets from the present day. Team KajaFax has over the years been to many ‘Goo gigs and although many of our stubs have been lovingly retained from the shows that we have attended, many more have been donated and/or purchased from generous subscribers and online retailers.
Today’s entry falls very much into the latter category, but being so scarce an item could not be left to slip away. When the opportunity presented itself to purchase it, we had to grab it!
Kajagoogoo toured the Islands album extensively in 1984. To give you a taster of those days, check out this gallery of scans from the ‘Encore Live’ tour book:
On July 18th, 1984, Kajagoogoo performed at the Nagoya Civic Assembly Hall and it is from this venue that today’s ticket was originally purchased:
As indicated on the stub, the show was promoted by FM Aichi Broadcasting Company Ltd. We know that other dates from the Islands tour were recorded by Japanese radio stations. Did FM Aichi record this show for broadcast??
KajaFax would be interested to hear from any of our Japanese subscribers who may have items in their own collections relating to this tour.
To round off this entry, here is some video of the band on Japanese television in 1984, courtesy of KajaFan ‘FunkyRoger’.
