History of changes to the site, listed in reverse chronological order, since Jan 2004. Scroll or jump down to access updates prior to the current year.

Date Description of changes
24 Jun 2017 Updated the dates page and the live recording description to reflect the newly discovered fact that the 15 Jun 1987 Hüsker Dü show in Novellara, Italy took place in the outdoor courtyard of La Rocca (The Fortress), and not at Ritz, as had been assumed for many years. Ritz was listed as the backup venue in case of rain, which might explain how the tape came to be mislabeled. Also put up a venue image page for La Rocca. Thanks to Mike Ziegler, whose tape list indicated the discrepancy, and to Stefano Vietti, who attended the show and has confirmed that the weather was fine that day, so there was no need to move the performance indoors.

11 Mar 2017 Made yet more revisions to the venue description page for International I and II in Manchester UK, based on info solicited from followers of the Hüsker Dü Database Facebook page. It turns out that International I and International II dates of operation did in fact overlap for some period of time, and it's been established with a fair amount of confidence that both Hüsker dates took place at International I. Thanks to Russ Meehan, Paul Drew, Brendan Bell, Alex Atherton, and Jonathan Hargreaves for helping to clear up some of the confusion.

10 Mar 2017 Made some updates/corrections to the venue description page for International I and II in Manchester UK.

Thanks to Chris Brown for opening this can of worms.
10 Mar 2017 Made some updates/corrections to the venue description page for G.S. Vig's in Madison, which was apparently owned not by Butch Vig, but by his brother Chris.

14 Feb 2017 Ascertained that the 23 Jul 1983 Hüsker Dü gig did not in fact take place at The Barn in Riverside CA, a date/location combination that had long been geographically suspect.

Updated the dates page and put up a low-information venue description page for The (Excelsior) Barn. Thanks to Alex Grosby for the info.
