Your first concert?

Dr Sheldon Cooper

Geoff Thomas
Duran Duran rio tour 1982 at Leicester DeMontford, Way Ahead Records.

Wish it was someone with a bit more cred but got to say I really enjoyed it.

Unlike a lot of people I make no claim to seeing the sex pistols at the Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall in 1976.

I actually did, I can tell you an anecdote about that. i was catching the London train from Crewe station. It was very crowded, I found myself in a last-minute rush for the one remaining seat with a tall, good-looking man with collar-length hair, it was the seventies - buckaroo! When I sat down on the chair, I looked up and realised it was none other than Peter Purves! It was at the height of his Blue Peter fame! He said "You jammy bastard!" and quick as a flash, I replied, "Don't be blue, Peter!" Needless to say, I had the last laugh.

My first concert was The Beatles at De Montfort Hall in Leicester on Sunday, March 31, 1963.
De mont and Granby halls was always a good venue. I don't like these massive stadium venue,s where you are just watching a screen.

Needles to say... I took drugs.

Mark Morrison, Exmouth beach in 1996. It was a Radio 1 roadshow. He came, danced along to Return to the Mack and then buggered off. A proper showman who knew how to keep his audience panting for more.

Portsmouth Lacarno(?) 1978 Stranglers supported by the Skids. Not a bad first gig.

Erasure, Rock City Nottingham, 1987.

Memorable for me not only because of the music, plus Andy Bell’s rubber mini-dress, but that I lost a bet and had to go to Rock City wearing a white miniskirt and white high heel stilettos.

To be fair footwear with a small surface area making contact with the floor at Rock City is a definite plus!
