12 February 1986: Motley Crue + Cheap Trick – Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, England, UK

I went to this because Cheap Trick were playing. They’d just released “Next Position Please”, so I popped along for a sing-a-long. They were excellent and made the evening.

Motley Crue however, drum riser antics included, were not my cup of tea.

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.
