Went to see The Specials at Hammersmith Palais in 1979 or 1980, can't remember, but when we got there, The Specials had told the venue they didn't want Skinheads in that hadn't pre-booked tickets, so we stood around for a while, then Suggsy came along so we told him and he tried to get us in - top man - but they wouldn't have it, but fair play to Suggs he bothered to come back out and tell us and say sorry. I never bothered with The Specials after that. Still love their first album though.

I was there that night.


So many but ones that stick in mind include

The Who - Quadrophenia tour at Earls Court 1997

Radiohead Pablo Honey tour warm up at the Garage Highbury 1990ish

Alien Sex Fiend at The Cartoon 89ish

Sex Pistols at Crystal Palace Sept 2002

New FADS at New Cross Venue 91ish

The Darkness at The Camden Monarch 2002

Burt Bacharach at Hurrahs Las Vegas in 98, had tickets but missed the gig and I'm still pissed off.

U2 at Sheffield Arena on the Achtung Baby tour was pretty memorable (as was the queuing for tickets overnight)

Fat & Frantic gigs were always a good laugh.

Saw the Stranglers in Nottingham in the early 90's on a freebie, but thought the support band (Material Issue, who provided the freebie) were much better.

 


That's just the ramblings of a madman

David Bowie - Milton Keynes Bowl 1982
Echo & the Bunnymen Shepherd's Bush last year.
V2003 - Coldplay were especially good.
And my first ever Tom Petty at the brighton Centre many moons ago.

Seen some rough ones too - all groups I liked just the wrong time in their history -
Dexy's after their 3rd Album,
The Kinks in Worthing
Madonna last year (for the benefit of my girl at the time!)
David Bowie on his Glass Spider tour.

I'm sure there's lots of others that were OK - The Cure, ABC, Steve Harley, Ian Hunter & Mick Ronson.

There's nothing like it for making the hairs on your neck stand up - bit like Palace were a long long time ago,
