it was 21 years ago for my first gig too - Wembley Arena, saw them 2 consecutive nights :))

I was told (by some chaps after last night's Manchester concert) that my fondness for Roll The Bones stems from the fact I was a newcomer in 1991/2

£6 would have been good for the ticket prices this time around mate!

This was mine too! Mind the firest chord of The Big Money and getting swept away by the surging crowed loved that gig!
My mate I was with says they had a piper at the start of the gig but I don't remember it!!

I saw them on their 2112 tour at Hammersmith Odeon in 1977 I think.  It was in the teeth of the 'Punk' movement and any rock gig had my vote at the time.  The irony was that I'd gone along primarily to see the support band called "Stray.'

Needless to say I was blown away and have been a fan ever since. I've also seen every subsequent tour on British soil since.
