18 February 1989: The Waterboys + We Free Kings – City Hall, Sheffield, England, UK

The classic Waterboys lineup at their very best. Sorry, I can’t remember a thing about it, except I think we had to sit down, but I’m sure it was great, like every Waterboys gig.

04 February 1985: The Boomtown Rats + Zerra One – Royal Centre, Nottingham, England, UK

My first gig.

Zerra One tried very hard but I can’t remember anyone being bothered. U2 sound-a-likes, I think.

The Boomtown Rats played “Looking After Number One” and “Mary of the Fourth Form”. No “I Don’t Like Mondays” though, to my disappointment.
