Ash supporting The Darkness at Wembley Arena, Dec. 2004

Although having said this I was part of the crowds out front of Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Golden Jubilee concert, which probably counts instead.

I did something similar with some of my favourite stubs but I scanned the originals and cut and pasted them onto the top a £5 Ikea table. Carefully covered them with clear sticky plastic and got some

One of the joys of being an oldie is that I got to see a lot of good bands in their infancy. I started my gig going in 1967 at Bath Pavilion with shows promoted by Freddie Bannister, who later we

Gary Glitter, Oxford New Theatre. A school trip. Seriously

Motörhead at Hammersmith March 29th 1982.  Tank the opening act. A fantastic way to open my account for a 14 year old!

Fabulous 😎👍

Jason Donovan at the NEC in 1990. I was 6 and my mate's ma bought us tickets and took us. I have one clear image of it in my head, we were seated in the stands to the right of the stage.

My parents would never be able to take me to anything like that, so I didn't go to another paid gig until I was 18 in 2002 and took myself to see Alien Ant Farm at Birmingham Academy. (Prior to that I did see Danni Minogue and the Outhere Brothers play a couple of tracks at the Big Breakfast roadshow in Centenary Square in the mid 90s.)

I took my young son to see The Eagles original line up when he was very young (he’s now 30). 
He regrets ‘missing’ them now because at the time he wasn’t arsed in any way to watch them.

King (of Love and Pride 'fame') in I think 1985, Hammersmith Odeon supported by Drum major

I'd wanted the year before to go and see Tears for Fears but my parents deemed me too young :-( (I was 14) and to this day I wish I;'d been allowed. I finally saw TFF about 3 years ago in Hyde Park

A month before my 5th birthday, my Dad took me to this. I’ve memories of being plonked above a fire exit to sit with other young Madness fans.

Saw a few bands there in the 90s - Carter USM, The Farm and maybe The Wonderstuff.

Not a bad place - used to love Wolves Civic Hall and Leicester De Montford for gigs too
