SONIC YOUTH // 2002 Tour Statistics

NOTE: In-Store performances are included in total count of set lists + song tallies, except for the "songs" played in Austin and Thurston's solo versions. The radio show performances are listed at the bottom but do not count towards the song tallies, as they are in-studio performances with no audience. The TV performances, though listed separately, do count towards the song tallies on the 'song stats' chart, as they had a live audience. Thurston/Lee/Jim acoustic sets not included at all.

    Note: The statistics above only reflect the information available on this site in the form of gig dates, set lists, and tour schedules. Since many set lists are either missing or incomplete, and not all concert dates are available, it's impossible to offer 100% accuracy, but this is as close as the site can come w/ the information available. Your help to make the site more complete would be greatly appreciated. Contact Chris Lawrence with any info you have.
