Famous Rock Concerts?

Recommended Posts

Fastyr Mie:

 

Just wondering.

 

Has there been any Good Rock & Roll Concerts done on the IOM with any Famous Rock & Roll Artists?

 

Maybe Sir Paul or Sir Elton or even U2?

Yep - Status Quo, Mott the Hoople (2 gigs), Thin Lizzy (2 gigs), Slade, T. Rex, & of course the excellent Black Mass!

I've always wished someone would write a book about some of the great bands of the 60's and 70's that played over here. It's been done for a slightly earlier period I think, and there was a great programme on Manx Radio a couple of years back, with Roger Watterson interviewing Bernie May, John Harrison and 'Flash' Howell. I think Flash probably has most of the history, as he supported many of the big names that played the great days of the Lido. I was slightly too young to catch most of the big names but I caught a few acts in the early to mid-70's.

There's a thread running in some Belfast newspaper website about summer hols on the island in the 70s (and all that entailed)

 

Haven't got into it yet but I imagine there's plenty there

Queen, how could I forget them?

 

Great gig on their first UK tour

 

Slightly marred by massive fight in middle of the big floor at the Lido- Freddie ignored it
