The band traveled to the gigs in a refurbished old bus and had to bring their own P.A. system. The agency booking their tour was reluctant to invest much money on an unproven act.

1974

For Badfinger's 6th U.S. tour, they had two new albums to promote at the same time! "Ass" on Apple Records and "Badfinger" on Warner Brothers Records were released within a few months of each other. This would turn out to be the band's final U.S. tour, although they didn't know it at the time. The start of the tour was delayed due to record company issues and management problems, but the gigs were picked up three weeks into their planned itinerary. A lot of songs on this tour contained extended jams, making them last 5-10 minutes long. When Badfinger were expected to perform two shows in one night, their set list had to be shortened from an hour and a half, down to an hour.

During October, Badfinger supported the Welsh band Man who were on their U.K. tour to promote their "Slow Motion" LP. Prior to this tour, Pete Ham had quit the band and was replaced by Bob Jackson. However, Pete rejoined in time for the beginning of the tour, making this the only time Badfinger performed as a 5-piece act. For the first time, drummer Mike Gibbins sang lead onstage. Following the tour, Joey Molland left the band on November 4th, reducing the line-up back down to four members.

1981-1983 (a tale of two Badfingers)


After Badfinger failed to come up with enough songs to satisfy Radio Records executives for recording a 2nd LP to follow-up "Say No More", the group fell apart. Joey ended up putting his own version of Badfinger together by recruiting some of his friends. From this point on, Joey & Tom would never perform together again. From 1981-1983, two different line-ups of Badfinger co-existed.

In 1982, Mike Gibbins relocated himself in Detroit, MI. He invited Tom to come over from England to form a new version of Badfinger (noted as "Tom Evans' Badfinger"). Eventually, Tom persuaded Bob Jackson to come over as well (in May) and a new line-up was formed with guitarist Adam Allen in Milwaukee, WI.

Tom Evans continued touring with his version of Badfinger with two other line-ups from October of 1982 until October of 1983. Tom committed suicide the next month in November, thus ending another era of Badfinger live performances.
