and many others (in support, or that I have not remembered yet
The best group/artist I have ever seen
Led Zeppelin at Earls Court (a

The best concerts I have seen
The Who at Charlton, London (an open

Knebworth (so many great performances)

- so many good songs Tina Turner (Woburn Abbey) - brilliant
from start to finish Conway Twitty (Odeon Theatre, Birmingham)
- I left the theatre thinking that this is what Elvis would be like

- the PA used a third of the stage. Jerry Lee Lewis (Plaza Ballroom,
