Yes we used to go to a lot of gigs somewhere between the end of the 80s and up to mid 90s. The early part was when I was at university and we had a lot of good bands, some I have forgotten. And then into the 90s I was either visiting or living in London and there's a lot of nice venues there. Again there's ones I forget, and a lot of support acts that I don't recall.

Billy Bragg is a bit of a cheat because for some reason my girlfriend had a ticket but I didn't, I forget why. So I went to pick her up at the end and saw his last two songs.

And the Manics I have seen a few times.

The Big Geraniums gig was one we ran in Ireland. My girlfriend's (different one) sister booked them in at a big dance hall - we ran the proceedings, tickets, door, bar man - did it all that night.

I just remembered I saw New Model Army too, will add that in. And the Levellers. My greebo phase  lol

I am jealous of your P.I.L. gig though  Grin

Comfort the Disturbed! Disturb the Comfortable!

If we're just counting concerts, I've only been to a small few. But two of them were huge, like 1978 Cal Jam II, and the 1983 Us Festival, which featured a lot of bands. Still, Freddy's got us all beat, even if we all pooled our lists. Cheesy

Concerts:
  • 1978 Cal Jam II at the Ontario Motor Speedway
  • 1983 Us Festival, Devore, Ca.
  • 1998 - Journey in Concert, Reno, Nevada

Bands seen:
  • Cal Jam:
    • Aerosmith
    • Foreigner
    • Dave Mason
    • Rubicon
    • Santana
    • Bob Welch
    • Ted Nugent
    • Others (can't remember who)
  • Us Festival:
      • Quiet Riot
      • Motley Crüe
      • Ozzy Osbourne
      • Judas Priest
      • Scorpions
      • Van Halen
      • Other bands (again, can't remember who)

    As a side note, I ran one of the spotlights at the Us Festival, saving on the ticket price. Cheesy

    Some cracking bands there Dave  Cool

    For me particularly Aerosmith and Ozzy. I just started listening to Ted Nugent, he reminds me of Ozzy. Judas Priest and the Scorpions would have been cool too, used to listen to them a lot in my head banging days.

    For me things really changed when electronic music took off, from early House Music and onwards. Back then gigs changed too, no longer would I go and see a single band but a DJ spinning some of the latest tunes. I did go to quite a few of them.

    Still love and champion electric music to this day.
