I got freebies to the "Breakfast in America" show at Madison Sq. Garden when I worked at Sam Goody's (record store) and walked out halfway through bored to tears.

Saw Gary Numan at the Palladium on 14th St. in NYC in 1982 or so; at one point he came out in his little car and drove around the stage.

I will produce my master list in a week or so when I get back home from this business trip I'm on and I can consult my ticket stubs. The chronological list goes from 11/73 (Spencer Davis Group opening for Focus at the Felt Forum to 5/04 (Yes at Madison Sq. Garden— my 18th Yesshow).

Hi dave,

Cant wait to hear from a Thijs van Leer's groupy....

My sides are still hurting from your comment about Gary's car.

If your list is like mine, and it doesn't go back that far ago, your auditive capacity is probably as bad as mine.... . Metallica is one thing but being 10 feet away from the speakers of Jean-Luc Ponty was as damaging.

After all these years and so many Yes concerts you must be part of the family...


P.S. Jon was in great shape yesterday in Québec city...

Those are just a few of the more well known groups I went to see (and can remember!) when I lived in London and the amount of concerts is from memory but pretty accurate. Over and above this I used to go to the Marquee, the Music Machine, the 100 club, the Windsor Castle Harrow road and a load of other venues to listen to less well bands and I couldn't list them all here. If only the net was around in those days, I'd have uploaded photo's from all the gigs.

Since moving to Scotland I don't have the opportunity to go to gigs as A: the stuff that's on offer here is crap B: the big names don't visit Scotland very often C: I'm a bit older now

First ever concert was Hawkwind at the new theatre in Oxford in 1975!

EDIT: Actually, first concert was the Alexander Brothers in 1965 aged 4 apparantly
