    Default Embarrassing Gigs

    Ok, so we've had memorable gigs and so on, but what is the most embarrassing gig that you have ever been to that you will admit to (come on, we are all friends here!). Showing what a big eejit I am, and of course, that I'm game for a laugh, I'll go....

    New Kids On The Block, Wembley, in about 1989 I think.....

    Next!

    Suzi Quatro '87 - I got a shiner about 10 feet from her.
    Brendan Grace,(Irish comedian ) late 80s - the audience kept buying him pints of Guinness to see him drink them in 10 seconds. It was like being at the zoo.
    Into the 5th Millennium & beyond...!

    Default embarassing gigs

    Iwent with my wife to see David Essex as none of her pals fancied going.As she liked him in the 70's I went along thinking that no one I knew would be there. Big mistake as one of the first people I saw was a workmates wife who told her husband and for ages I got choruses of hold me close or gonna make you a star at work.I am still reminded of this and it was 14 years ago.

    Default Embarrassing Gigs

    Not so much as embarrassing but I can remember going to see Robert Fripp and Brian Eno at the Assembly Halls in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday 7th of June 1974.It was billed as the Superstar Show and there were only going to be the 2 shows, Tunbridge Wells followed by the London Palladium on Sunday evening.
    Some people had come as far as Scotland as it was only the 2 shows.
    Well first the Band came on very late, then their equipment broke down and by the time someone came down from London to fix it the time was getting quite late.
    When they did start which was about 10.30pm,most of the music was on a reel to reel tape deck.........and you guessed it most people started to walk out and demanded their money back......... A right **** up of an evening.
    I still have the flyer for the show...... I will remember it well !

    lololol i don't know if anyone is ever truly ready to admit going to see Barry Manilow but now it's out there lol. I went with my mum and although I would die before admitting it to anyone who knew me at the time it was actually quite a good show. Of course, the only reason I went was to support my mum's habit lololol, pity I can't say the same for Shakin' Stevens!!

    Had free tickets to see Bert Kampfert's orchestra in Derby Assembly Rooms, two years ago.
    Saw Status Quo last year at Nottingham Royal Centre.
    Mike Harding at Nottingham Royal Centre when I was aged 16/17 (late 1980's). Got grounded for going out without permission.
