Something like that, yep. The old boxing Stadium. I saw the Capt again, during the Doc at the Radar Station period at what used to be the Top Rank Suite in the St John's Centre. I believe Bowie/Ziggy played that venue some years earlier.


Genesis/ Lindisfarne played there too - a mate of mine was going and I decided not to bother. I've regretted it ever since.

Went along to Sounds of the 70s with Johnnie Walker in Southend last night. An enjoyable show with plenty of amusing anecdotes from Mr Walker. Have to say the live band were good but Iím afraid the female singer was painful to listen to! The male singer though had an excellent rock voice and the guitarist was excellent. Johnnie Walker not looking bad for 75 year-old and he still ranks in the top 3 of my all-time favourite DJs along with Roger Scott and Charlie Gillett neither of which are still with us

Hmm, I bought 2 tickets to see Genesis at the Empire on "The Lamb Lies Down" tour; my then girlfriend, into whose tender hands I'd entrusted the tickets, proceeded to dump me unceremoniously a few days before the gig. It sounded good from outside the back of the theatre...  Angry
