Calling All Magma Fans - Help Make The Definitive Gig List

For years, the definitive list of Magma gigs has been found on the "Magma On Tour" section of the Ork Alarm website. This was a list that was started by the late Paul Mummery, and featured contributions by many of the most ardent Magma fans. However, it is known that the list contains a number of omissions and inaccuracies.

Our friend Akoustikus from Switzerland is starting a project to make the gig list totally accurate. He has started compiling a revised gig list.

And, we need your help to make sure that the new list is correct.

I will use this blog to gather any corrections from Magma fans out there. I hope that the Zeuhl and Beyond blog can also help with the French users.

We will start off with the years 2000 and 2001. The corrections to the original gig list are shown in Blue.

Here is an example of corrections to the year 200. Let's look at the last few gigs of the year. The original list in Ork Alarm has this:

17-11-2000 Lyon ??? (did this show happen)[a]???
18-11-2000 Espace Julien - Marseille
23-11-2000 Le Noumatroff - Mulhouse - France [a]

And, in the revised list, we have

17-11-2000 Lyon (Gerland), Le Hublot [a]
18-11-2000 Espace Julien - Marseille
23-11-2000 Le Noumatroff - Mulhouse - France [a]
24-11-2000 Nancy (t.b.c.)
22-12-2000 Rennes, Salle de la Cité

Notice that Akoustikus has corrected the name of the venue and confirm the existence of the gig in Lyon, and he added two more gigs.

There is a lot of work involved here. If any of you would like to help, it would be appreciated.
