Astoria 157 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EN

Plus dEUS though I got there too late for the support:

Now am I mixing this up with the gig the year before? I think the one I went into late still had Deus as support but I'm sure I went downstairs into the LA2, this one is at the Astoria.

I attended this one, more from this year in my gigography for 1997. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2024. It's an obvious step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these things.
