The tomatobase

Stanley Theman started off as a regular tomatoband fan just like you. Over time, however, his archiving skills shone and he was anointed official tomatoband archivist. Below you can find a record of all known tomotoband shows and set lists.

You will also find a comprehensive list of every song played live by tomatoband, along with the earliest and best versions, number, of times played, and a breakdown of which songs were played at which show.
