A handful of unresolved shows are included where the venue, or even the date, remains unconfirmed. Any help with these or other errors and omissions would be appreciated and credited where appropriate.

THE GIGS AT A GLANCE

The following is a tabulation of the number of concerts played by Rainbow. Where two shows were played in one day, or night, these are both counted. Not included are TV appearances, jam sessions and scheduled performances either known to have been cancelled or unconfirmed. The tour dates are colour-coded geographically and the totals by region would seem to be as follows:


Year


United Kingdom


North America


Mainland Europe



Australia
