Just came across this, took me a while to work out how old I was.


I had just turned 15.

Check the horrendous ticket price......

Wonderful a £ to see Focus, Genesis, Wishbone Ash and to cap it all ELP:)

My first concert some unknown then and still unknown band at Bedford TT College,

First proper concert either Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at the Cheltenham Corn Exchange or Midsummer Music at Wembley Stadium on 21June 1975 featuring
Elton John, Beach Boys, Eagles, Joe Walsh, Stackridge, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, all for under a fiver.
 
The Ramones, Newcastle City Hall, 1978.

Played 30 odd songs in an hour 2 very quick encores and offski.

One of the best hour and a quarters in my life!

Circa 1971. Rod Stewart and the Faces Nod is As Good As a Wink tour. Took a date, wore a gold pleather jacket and my ruby ring. Nervous as hell.
 
Principle Edwards MagicTheatre. Yes, they did exist in the 60's.
They appeared at my school when I was aged 14 in 1968. Tickets were 50p if I recall.

My first gig was Generation X at Wolvo Civic Hall in Feb 1979. Supports were Bernie Torme, who was touring support, plus local band opening, Neon Hearts.
Before my Punk Rocker days, I saw quite a few bands at a local working men's club, with my parents and sister on Saturday nights. One act I saw a few months later, on New Faces, and they won the heat that evening.
