  • William and Mary Hall in Williamsburg, US on Fri, 15 Oct 1982

    Me and two buds drove from Seymour Johnson AFB, in Goldsboro, NC, to Williamsburg for the show and it was worth every minute spent on the road. Supporting the newly released Combat Rock album I was blown away by the new music. Factor in the classics, the attitude, the politics and rebellion and multiply it by a forceful sound system, and lots a feedback…. What a show. They don’t make them like that anymore.

    From my memory the first half of the show was pretty iffy. It sucked. Then something turned and it ended being one of the best concerts I saw.

    The opening band at the '82 Clash show at William & Mary Hall was The Mighty Invaders...100% for sure...

    What's up SUBLMNK-

    I was also at this show , along with several of my friends...we were recently discussing the show, and trying to recall who opened for The Clash. One says Stray Cats; another says The Go Gos...I disagree with both of them. I pretty clearly remember it was a reggae band. I want to say they were called something like The Mighty Thunderbirds. Internet searches have turned up nothing. Do you recall who opened?

      I know it's not a reggae band, but i will try anyway. Maybe T-Bone Burnett?

    One of my favorite concerts of all time. Mosh pit was huge. I worked my way to within a foot of the stage standing right under Mick Jones. I had not heard their new album Combat Rock yet (it had come out a month earlier), and was blown away hearing live the new songs. I especially remember Rock the Casbah, Straight to Hell, and especially Should I Stay or Should I Go. It was almost a religious experience.

    Easily the best live gig I have seen. The band led by Strummer, Simonin on bass stormed it even with Topper and Jones on board. I was with a mate near the front of the stage and it was fucking intense. The crowd just wouldn't leave at the end and they came back on for the standard two encores and then two more. The last after all the lights had switched on and fans were starting to vacate. I recall turning around and moving with the crowd toward the exit and then...bang! Off went the lights. Brief pitch blackness. The crowd surged back and Strummer and the band flew back on with one last blast of White Riot. Blew me away.

    I was there. It was just amazing to be seeing this band. The sound was horrible and I have never seen a bass guitar slung so low in my life.

    Great days of my misspent youth

    I honestly don’t remember much but I recall the crowd pushing forward against the security and one of the Clash saying “C’mon, they can’t hold you all back”. The crowd overran the security and as the 3 frontline Clash mates played on the edge of the stage, the rest of the stage filled with 50+ dancing fans. It was controlled chaos.
