Full Show Friday: The Clash – Live In Tokyo 1982

For today’s Full Show Friday selection we look at a complete concert from punk legends The Clash. Filmed on January 28, 1982; this performance was one of the band’s last with drummer Topper Headon. Headon, who filled the drum seat in The Clash from 1977 to 1982, was asked to leave the band shortly after the Far East tour was finished and was replaced by Terry Chimes.


Here we’ve got The Clash powering through 13 songs in front of an attentive Japanese audience. Included within are hits such as London Calling, This Is Radio Clash and Police On My Back. The show was filmed professionally and broadcast on Japanese TV. While the performance came shortly after Combat Rock was recorded, none of the songs from the soon-to-be-released album made the setlist.

Safe European Home 4:18
