First would have been Elton John at Cov Theatre about 1974.A few years later couldn't stand him and was seeing the likes of The Buzzcocks at the Theatre.

In the fifties not many US artists came to the UK, but I remember that when Bill Haley and the Comets came a few of of my schoolmates got tickets to see them at the Gaumont Cinema. I did not go, but I did go to see The Crickets at the De Montfort Hall, Leicester on March 16th. 1958, with my mate, John Probert. It cost us 10/-, 5/- for the coach ticket and 5/- for the concert ticket. Absolute magic from a great group. I recall that midway through the concert, a girl came running past us, heading for the stage, screaming "BUDDY". Two of the concert security blokes grabbed an arm each and, lifting her up off the floor, took her back to her seat.

CovKid41. I went to the Bill Haley concert at the Gaumont Cinema, very good show. You mention a friend named John Probert. I wonder if he is the same John Probert that I knew at the time I attended Stoke Heath Primary School. The John I knew then lived in Alliance Way, Stoke Heath.

PP Arnold backed by The VIP's (Keith Emerson & co) at Tudor Club (Mercer's Arms) in 1966, Long John Baldry with Rod Stewart & Julie Driscoll at Jazz Club (Leofric) also 1966. Free, Fairport Convention, Family, ELP & Steppenwolf at Lanch, Stones at Cov Theatre, Meatloaf 3 times, Liverpool Scene & Edgar Broughton at Mothers in Erdington, Springsteen at St James's Park Newcastle, and Blind Faith in Hyde Park. Best was probably Yes at De Montfort in Leicester in 1974 and again at Sheffield Town Hall in 2014 and they were still brilliant.

I can't remember exactly which came first but I went to a few gigs at Warwick University students union in 1982 and saw various two tone and punk bands including Selector and one called Splodgenessabounds.

You cannot really forget "two pints of lager and a packet of crisps - please". Talking of earlier mentioned Coventry bands - King have almost reformed sans Paul King and are playing this Sunday at Ego in Cook Street for their first reunion gig. Edited by member, 5th May 2015 3:05 am

Supertramp, Joan Armatrading, The Movies: All at the one gig at the Coventry Theatre 1975 - talk about value for money! Smile
