1992 Gigography of Paul Clarke

Gigography 1992

Getting there with my gig history now, every gig I was at, from 1987 up to about now. It's an obvious step from my Best gigs of all time post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have added details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, + a box of old concert tickets + things from Mum + Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding festival lineups, they'll probably stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a stack missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME + Popex years and that. Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering this stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now...

Bug Bash @ Castle Donington

Not Beetle Bash, and not Bug Jam, so Bug Bash. Maybe some arguments over names? I seem to think this was the one that was more about the rave + less about the cars though. On for three…

Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction @ University of Portsmouth

Past their prime (mover), who exactly were the Love Reaction at this stage? Still a treat though, even if enjoying it slightly ironically by this stage. One of them was called Susan I think and he was younger than the…

Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert @ Wembley Stadium

The remaining members of Queen, Guns'n'Roses, Metallica, David Bowie, Elton John, Spinal Tap ect ect... not a bad lineup. HELL YEAH I was there, good work Andy scoring tickets for this one. Lots more info here, I researched this again when I did a quiz round based on this recently. Who knew that Robert Plant asked for his contribution not to be repeated? + who remembers Bob Geldof being there? Not…
