Gig Tickets part 2 – the 1990s

This was my ‘decade of diversity’ – the era when the heavy metal shackles came off and I started to open my ears to other genres of music (see My Story for details).

I’ve always been a bit of a headbanger and I will never ever lose my passion for screaming guitar licks or meaty drum solos. However the 90s taught me that it was ok to like other stuff too and this opened up a whole new world of music to me. Motörhead and Metallica would now sit alongside Massive Attack, Moby and Mansun in my album collection. Vinyl would give way to CDs and my gig-going would become more frequent and take in live shows by the likes of Air, Faithless and the Flaming Lips to name a few. I even went to see Wet Wet Wet in Sheffield for fucks sake! (I won’t be writing about that experience as thankfully I have somehow managed to erase all traces of it from my memory).

One day I will share my recollections of some of the gigs I went to back in the 90s. In the meantime here are some of my lovely old ticket stubs for your viewing pleasure…
