I would later come to lots of these shows, but this year I still did not live in London and only came to the touring show with some friends.
I was at this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 1996. Part of every gig I was at from '87 to 2023. A natural step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these things.
