    £4 a tkt and friends included The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Street Walkers, Little Feat and the Outlaws. WidowMaker were supposed to be there also but I can't remember that bit.
    Alex Harvey was superb and with some of the classic Who antics, brilliant!
    I went to the Charlton gig a couple of weeks earlier. Rained all day, image below from the actual gig, I was 14 and travelled down from Liverpool on the day. Only time I saw The Who with Keith Moon, 15 times without over the years.

    I was standing over to the right out of shot. Can still remember the lazer beams.



    First gig was in 1973 at the Liverpool Empire, Roxy Music supported by a young Leo Sayer dressed as a clown. Christ he was loud.

    I saw them at Hammersmith on the Hemispheres tour 1978, they were so loud. Great band, sadly they called it a day last month.

    Wishbone Ash in '74 or '75 at the Liverpool Empire. A lad infront of me was removed before the gig even started for spewing up in the stalls (drink or drugs I think)
    I also remember paying £2:75 to see Pink Floyd play DSOTM. I remember the price because it was 25p dearer than all the other major concerts of that era!

    Happy days indeed

    In actual fact the band members were all falling out at the that time. After playing DSOTM and the audience were going crazy with adulation David Gilmour, or possibly Roger Waters, bluntly said if we'd all shut up and sit down they would play Meddle - so we did and they did!

    I was in the audience with you at 3 of those. 1st night ever in Europe for Kiss who were about to go multi platinum and create the monster some know as Gene $immons Skynyrd I was so-so about but they were on top of the game and about to get bigger - one I should have gone to.
