Gig List

Hello Music Lovers, 

You are about to read one of my proudest achievements... it's my gig list! It took a long, long time to put together (as I hadn't actually any record of them in chronological order save for the ticket stubs!) but thanks to the help of a couple of friends -- who obviously have better memories than I -- I think I've just about got it.

Of course, I'm always adding to it and hope that by the end of my days it will be a sight to behold, indeed!

Were you at any of these gigs? Do you have a memory you would like to share about any of them? Please feel free to comment!
