More than you would ever need to hear  Tongue - 6 or 7 versions from 1979-1980.  I'm happy to trade if you're interested.

Here's my list of the night clubs where I have been fortunate enough to see the Romantics play.  There are a couple of concerts where I have seen the Romantics in Reno and Las Vegas, but I can't seem to remember the dates.  Is it the age or the alcohol? 

Old Waldorf, San Francisco:  3/27/1980
                                         2/11/1981
                                        11/07/1981
                                         9/30/1982

Keystone, Palo Alto:            11/06/1981

Kabuki, San Francisco:         4/18/1984

Starry Night, Portland, OR:   4/20/1984
                                       10/30/1984

Astor Park, Seattle:             3/23/1986
                                        3/26/1986

The Living Room,                5/19/1988 
Providence, RI:

Jimmy Z Ltd., Evertt, WA:    5/21/1989

La Luna, Portland, OR:         6/19/1993

Fat Cat, Modesto, CA:          3/31/2004

Great American Music          4/01/2004
Hall, San Francisco:

12 Galaxies, San Francisco: 10/05/2006

Rocks Lounge, Las Vegas:     9/21/2007


I was struck by the huge gap between the show in 1993 and 2004.  But, as I remember it, during that itme I saw the Romantics play a show after a Mariners game in the King Dome in Seattle and at least once at a Casino in Reno.

Oh my....
I saw them sometime around 1988 or 1989 at the River Rock Cafe (?) in Detroit.
Not sure, but I think Johnny B was their drummer at that show (I know it wasn't Jimmy or Dave Petratos).

07/01/2001 - Phoenix Center, Pontiac, MI
I think it was the Arts Beats & Eats festival and that was the 1st time I ever met Wally, Mike, Coz and then-drummer, Clem Burke. I remember Wally was wearing a dark purple Jacket...

2003 - Emerald Ballroom, Mt. Clemens - 2nd time I met the band--I went to this show with Bookies & LMK, my hubby and a few of my other friends. Smiley

Then there are a slew of shows since then...
need to go back to my digital pics to remember all of the dates and exact locations... Smiley
I was a huge fan back in college, but never had the money to see them... So, now, I'm re-living my youth and trying to see them as many times as possible...

Toledo, OH
Cleveland, OH
Comerica Park - All Star Baseball Game Concert, Detroit, MI
Common Ground Music Festival, East Lansing, MI
Comerica Tastefest, Detroit, MI
Little Steven's Underground Show, Detroit, MI
Southcoast Casino, Las Vegas, NV (the furthest I've ever traveled-- and I met Dennis for the 1st time there!)
Rockford, IL
Rockin' on the Riverfront, Detroit, MI
Soaring Eagle Casino, Mt. Pleasant, MI - well, this one might not really count-- We got there only in time to hear "What I LIke About You"--(which, for me is my favorite song, so I was happy about that, but not so happy about missing the rest of the show!)

This isn't completely in order, but I'll fix it later when I have time to look up all of the venues & Dates. Smiley

I'm aging myself here, but I met the boys in December 1983, and have seen them a zillion times in a zillion places, including many clubs.  I'm one of the lucky ones to remember the boys when they played with Jimmy Marinos.  

I live in suburbs outside of Philadelphia but remember many a "ROMANTICS ROAD TRIP" with my girlfriends.  Have seen them at The Channel/Boston, Secrets/Maryland, not sure I remember the name of the club, but it was in Wildwood, New Jersey (ah, those were the days!), WildHorse Saloon/ Nashville, TN, The North Star Bar/Philadelphia, The Troc/Philadelphia, Club Met/Harrisburg, PA, Wildwood Convention Hall, Wildwood, NJ (Wally got arrested or reprimanded greatly by the police, to my recollection - hey, you'll HAVE to ask him), and most recently The Borgata in the Casino/Atlantic City, NJ.

There are SO many more, but I'm having my morning coffee and am not thinking clearly yet.

Mymeka,
I'm aging myself also (40 is the new 30! ) but I met them in April of 1984. I saw Jimmy Marinos with them at that show, then once more when he came back in 1996. He was truly a showman and incredible drummer. This band has always luckily been blessed though to have many talented drummers right on up to Brad.

As far as how many shows, and where, I havent sat down and tried to figure it out yet. Im guessing at least 20-25 shows over the last 25 years.....
