Hey Jeff, fellow Last-Show attendee here! We communicated a couple years ago. I was on the balcony (or I believe it was called Mezzanine) center front.
Remember there was an intermission and it was super looooooonnnnngggg? Didn't know if the band were coming back out or not!
Also do you remember, I am pretty sure they opened the set after intermission with All Along the Watchtower. There was a really long lead-in, and the stage was black except that a film projection of shapes and/or letters was running up over the stage and band.
Oh and, the warm-up act was Jools Holland and His Millionaires.
I had forgotten about all of those, but you are indeed right dons! Thanks for the memories (singing in Bob Hope voice.) Cheers!
Hi again Jeff, I have a question, it looks like you have the ticket stub from that last show in San Diego. Was it April 3 1982?? Reason I ask is, that was a Saturday, and call me crazy but I thought it was midweek... Ah well, if that is the stub, that settles it, lol. Did you also say you had unused tix from the next night at Hollywood Palladium? Hope all is well with you.
Saturday April 3, 1982. I had just moved back to my hometown of San Diego from Montana.
I didn't have a ticket to the cancelled LA show - had no way to get there if i did. I was fortunate later that year however to see both King Crimson and the Talking Heads "Stop Making Sense" Big Band at the Greek there. Great year for me, 1982.
Happy anniversary to the last XTC gig (the actual show, not the thread), on this date 38 years ago. I never got to see the band perform, as I was only four when they stopped touring. If only they could have made it one more year--I was the world's coolest five-year-old.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
bluedemon25: No ones going to comment on the new Colin song/music video out? I liked it. I know it's not about puns, body parts, or sports, but I thought it'd get excited mention from someone.
