Hunter/Ronson 1975 Tour

Hunter/Ronson toured in 1975, with a UK tour in March and early April 1975, and a US tour in April/May. Devine’s normally reliable book seems to be missing some of the US tour dates, such as April 18/19 (?) at the Uptown Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. You can see some photos from one of these gigs here; the photographer says this was March 20 1975 which is impossible as the duo were in Sheffield that day. Lots of misinformation out there.

Still, it seems to have been a great tour. The bootleg described here shows that there were Ronson as well as Hunter songs in the setlist:

  1. Once Bitten Twice Shy
  2. Lounge Lizard
  3. Angel No 9
  4. Who Do You Love
  5. White Light/White Heat
  6. Boy
  7. Play Don’t Worry
  8. The Truth, The Whole Truth, Nothin’ But The Truth
  9. Roll Away The Stone
  10. Slaughter On 10th Avenue
  11. The Golden Age Of Rock ‘n’ Roll/All The Way From Memphis
  12. All The Young Dudes
  13. The Girl Can’t Help It

Of course this is not complete and a bootleg is not the most reliable source, but you get the idea. Songs 3,5,7,10 and 13 are from Ronson’s solo albums, Slaughter on 10th Avenue and Play Don’t Worry.

It’s a shame that Proper Music’s Ian Hunter box Stranded in Reality has nothing from this tour.
