Roxy Music at the Odeon around 1976 ?

 

Blondie at the Odeon in the 1980s. Maybe 1984 ? Can't remember tbh. 

 

None planned apart from Who's Line Is It Anyway at the Festival Fringe in August but that's not really a gig.

Great gig and the Vapors were a decent support act and got a great reception!

Just now it’s only Friday 22nd, suspect they’ll add more dates around that though. Tickets only went on sale this week.

Last - Dr Feelgood, Kings Hall, Herne Bay 26th April 2019

Last. TITP 2015, not a gig i know.

 

Next. Genuinely not planning on one, just not that interested in music. Bon Jovi playing 80/90s stuff id be all over that but modern stuff is pish from everyone.

Really useful site, even though it depressed me to recall all the gigs I missed due to funding issues...

 

Anyway, my first gig wasn't listed - the Keef Hartley Band at the Usher Hall in late 69 / early 70. However, it does list my second gig, the Keef Hartley BIG Band at the Usher Hall on 11/04/1970. And only 75p for the grand circle!

 

I was mad for Hartley's music in those days, because I saw him again in Tiffany's in November 1970. Still play the first two albums.

 

Last gig: Crosby, Stills & Nash at the Armadillo in October 2013.

 

Next gig: Who knows? There are not many bands kicking around nowadays that really enthuse me, although a Steve Miller / Boz Scaggs reunion would get the juices flowing...
