Stiff Little Fingers, Newcastle Mayfair, 16 Mar 92

Met the band (then featuring Bruce Foxton) earlier in the day at a record signing - flags and emblems - only to have it nicked a few years later in a burglary :(

UK Subs were an excellent opening for the show!

Manic Street Preachers, Newcastle City Hall, 07 Oct 96

Found some old pictures on the loft...

Quite a show, with Nicky Wire taking a dislike to the security who wouldn't let the fans too close.

Headed to London for the Brixton show at the end of the tour, everything must go remains a classic...
