Suede Last gig ever! Played some great sets, the gig seemingly got chopped short, we left to the ghostly strains of We'll Meet Again... I hope we do.

UPDATE: we did, Suede reformed.
Astoria 157 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EN 020 7434 9592 [2003-12-13 2003]

Wolfsbane Found the ticket now! I went to the gig on my own, then got the last train up to Rugby, where I was staying for college. Can't find details anywhere online. Much stage diving, one of my favourite gig.s The Marquee 105 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0DT [1991-10-06 1991]

Love / Hate Plus my first time (of many) of seeing Atom Seed. Happy new year! Pretty sure we slept at Waterloo station after this gig and got a train back in the morning. I think one of the other bands on the bill were New England, no-one of note afaik. The Marquee 105 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0DT [1990-12-31 1990]

Iron Maiden Was on a Nixdorf training course in Hounslow, turned up too late for support band Wolfsbane, and anyway we had no tickets, but got given some by someone outside, I am sure it was Tommy Vance. Apparently we saw Jonathon King there too. Hammersmith Odeon Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith, London W6 9QH 020 8563 3800 [1990-10-18 1990]
