My one and only gig from The Darkness, who came to save us all from tedium with their guitar solos and hair-flinging rock majesty.
My one and only Kosheen gig – so far!
A glittering gem of a joy-filled gig from the wondrous Mark Owen.
My one and only Maroon 5 gig, and a rare chance to witness a band on the brink of superstardom.
My first Bowie gig. I’d waited 15 years for it, and it did not disappoint.
A sweltering night of shouting along to Manics rarities whilst squeezed between racks of CDs.
My first Lounge Kittens gig, and also, my last. Timing has never been my strong point.
A gig that provided conclusive proof that God is indeed a dancer. In fact, she’s a singer too, and her name is Mabel.
Songs for the day 05/02/20: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, “Blue Moon Rising” / Liam Gallagher, “Once”

All the gigs of my life: Gig 70 – Manic Street Preachers, Friday, July 11, 2003, Old Trafford Cricket Ground (Move Festival)
A rousing, fun, singalong celebration of everything we love about the Manics.
