    Simple Minds at the Mars Bar, Glasgow, 20 people there. Or it might have been SLF at the Apollo. 1978ish

      Garbage at Wembley 1999. Support act was Moloko, whom I quite like, but they were rubbish.

        R.E.M. at Earls Court in 1999 and support act were Wilco - both were excellent and had a great time at the front.

            Pah! I was at THE Isle of Wight 1969.
            And the Stones in Hyde Park, although It was so crowded and we so far back we could hardly hear a thing. After about 20 mins we said sod it and went to the pub.

            Ps And Marianne Faithful at Bristol Uni. Circa 1967.

                  Not sure if it counts as a gig, but I did go to the Radio 1 roadshow at Margate in 1982, with Peter Powell. The live band was Chaz and Dave...
