2019 Gigography of Paul Clarke

Gigography 2019

Getting there with my gigography now, every gig I was at, from 1987 up to about now. It's a natural progression from my Best gigs of all time post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have chucked in 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 bands seen at festivals, 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 geeky, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned the tickets now...

KISS at the O2 Arena @ O2 Arena

Pondered going to this for a while then mentioned it to Jack when we were at Suede + "oh yes, I'm going I might have a spare ticket" + yes it happened! I don't like this venue but it could be / should be the last time to see them on their "End Of The Road" tour. Writing this after the event, support was from a Rolf Harris style painter David Garibaldi who threw up huge portraits of John Lennon, Freddie Mercury and KISS live on stage. All the pyrotechnics + things at this gig. They opened with Detroit Rock City and ended with Rock'n'Roll All Night, and in between was some killer + a little filler... I will write it up in posts connected to…
