Blog ≫ 1977 ≫ Samson @ Leas Cliff Hall

Another bit of Folkestone Rock History here1.. According to delta.se/~henke/samson/biosam.html Samson played their first ever gig at Leas Cliff Hall, supporting Steve Gibbons Band. Nope, me either...

Bruce Dickinson left Samson to join Iron Maiden. But he wasn't actually in Samson at the beginning, and so wasn't at this gig. So a bit of a rubbish mention really.

They played their first gig on September 24th 1977 supporting the at the Leas Cliffe Hall, Folkestone. They were billed as "McCoy", but were immediately rebooked to appear as Samson.

  1. So, slightly confusing, as this appears as a blog post and perhaps in my gig history. I was not at this gig of course.
