I'm probably too late for my contribution to this topic, but does anyone remember Jewel and Warris? They appeared regularly in Sheffield (I believe Jimmy Jewel was a Sheffielder) at, I think, the Lyceum. My mother took us to see them and I remember distinctly (I'd be about 6, in the early 50s) they had a backdrop of a semi-naked female and Jimmy would wiggle his fingers near her bum, as if tickling her there - my mother was so outraged she said "come on, we're gooin" so I only saw them for about ten minutes of their act!

I saw Louis Armstrong at the City Hall May 8 1962,  first house at 6.20 because 8.50 was fully booked, I think.   Sheffield Telegraph website suggests many other jazz greats appeared there in the 60s - Coleman Hawkins, Gerry Mulligan, Count Basie and Duke Ellington are all mentioned.  I also saw many great classical artists at the Civic Hall during my 1959-62 time at the Uni., e.g. Sir John Barbirolli (Sibelius' Second), Geza Anda (playing Beethoven and photographed in the next day's papers rushing off at the end to grasp a cigarette from an aide), George Weldon, Leonard Pennario (Ravel Piano Concerto), Ann Schein (Rachmaninov 3rd Piano Concerto).  The Halle Orchestra, led by Martin Milner, played the same programme on Friday and Saturday nights alternating between Sheffield and Manchester.   Front row seat right under the leader's seat for 2/- (10p).    Great memories.

My friend and I, went to see SLADE in the early '70s. We were about 12' from the stage and it was brill ! They were a real proper Glitz and Glam band, full of colour and sparkle, and the clothes were just WOW ! Noddy Holder was great, he got everybody of all ages, enthused in clapping, swaying, and singing the words. Can't remember how many encores they had. It was a really wonderful, unforgetable night.

June 23rd 1967.

 

The Original Drifters, Ronnie Jones & The Q Set, Pitiful Souls, the Trends, Amboy Dukes. Compere Peter Stringfellow.

 

Possibly one further act: Alan Bown Set springs to mine but I can't be sure.

 

I was there.

Good, wasn't it?

Since that post I've attended a reunion of ex-Island Records people in London, where I met former Island artist Jess Roden - who confirmed that he was the singer with the Alan Bown Set at that time. In the '70s he had some success with his Jess Roden Band. He still looked annoyingly young!

I remember being at a concert in the City Hall given by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. I think it was in 1962 but it isn't listed here in any of the 1960's list.

We were on the stage behind them.They were the cheapest seats and it was the only tickets we could afford. At one stage near the end the Quartet turned around to face us and suddenly we were in the best seats in the house sitting only a few yards from them/

My love of classical music also began in the City Hall too. The concerts given by the Halle Orchestra on Fiday nights.

The Overture to the Third Act of Lohengrin was the first piece I ever heard live. That was in the early 1960's too.
