The following is a list of Television live performances.
The information was obtained from periodicals (primarily the Village Voice), magazines, books, dates listed on live audiotapes and (thank you) helpful contributors.
Note: If you click on any of the highlighted show dates, it will take you to that show's advertisement (as it appeared, mainly, in the Village Voice) or a flyer, or a ticket or whatever evidence remains.
Click on the PDF symbol to see the original b/w flyers designed
by Richard Hell and used to advertise the band's earliest gigs.
If there is an existing sound recording of a particular gig, there will be an icon in the final column; clicking on this will open a pop-up containing details of the recording.
(Please note: none of these recordings was authorised or approved by any member of Television, I didn't buy any of them and they aren't for sale here.)
