The most legendary Sheffield gigs of all time

Recommended Posts

Sheffield History

Help needed on this one!

What would you say have been the most legendary Sheffield gigs of all time?

The ones that people still can't believe happened in our city, or the ones that are often talked about as stuff of legends.

I'll kick things off with three shows I'd definitely like to be able to go back in time to see..

1) Def Leppard supporting The Human League at The Limit Club

2) Coldplay supporting Muse at The Leadmill

3) The Arctic Monkeys first ever gig (at The Grapes)

Bruce Springsteen at Bramall Lane wasn't there but everybody heard it for miles. 

Def Leppard at Don Valley, similar reason. 

Jimi Hendrix at the City Hall 17th November 1967. Front row seat 10/6d. Including The Move, Amen Corner, Outer Limits and a little known band called Pink Floyd. 

The Small Faces 5th Nov 1966 City Hall 6/- on Tour with the The Hollies

Walker Brothers and Roy Orbison 16th April 1966 7/6d plus supporting acts including Lulu

Fleetwood Mac city hall in early /. mid 70's.

There were less than 200 in the audience and before they came out they asked everyone to move to the front seats and we ended up front row. Think they started with Green Manalishi or Albatross and after the song finished, handed out cans of ale to the audience. Kept my empty can for years but now its long gone. Shame.
