RESEARCH QUESTION

Postby rooster » Wed Feb 17, 2016 8:37 am

This may apply to the older members but does anyone remember the concerts at the Hordern Pavilion where you only needed 2 d cell batteries to get in?
or the outdoor concert at Blacktown showground that Skyhooks performed I think 1974 or 75 ?

Earliest concert I saw was AC/DC with Dave Evans singing at a lunchtime concert at school when I was in First Form (Yr 7 for the younger crew)

Around this era........
