First concert ever for me, and that was absolutely awesome. Jim Kerr in great form, at a time when "Alive & Kicking" was the hit single following "Don't You Forget About Me". Such a energic concert with a perfect line-up including the chorist. I've always wandered why this was not this show which had been chosen for the live album "In the city of light" (this was the Zenith show later that year in August which was).
Starting with "Waterfront" followed by "Speed Your Love To Me", the live rendition of each song was different from records, with Charlie Burchill playing great guitars. I recall the fantastic version of "Someone Somewhere In Summertime" and the fact that Jim Kerr was always talking to the audience.
This has been the event that change my regard to music, making it live, getting so good sensations while going to see live artists. At that time there was no internet, the piracy was on tapes, which awful sound mainly. The artist could live from their music, as everybody who wanted a proper recording actually bought the records. This is why concerts were cheap.First concert ever for me, and that was absolutely awesome.
