Some of the gigs I attended in 1991. What I liked about the early tickets was that you had the band logos on them. That didn’t last though. I really came across a really good page on Facebook called Belfast Concert Photographs of the 1980s. Some cracker gig tickets of old amongst them. Please give it a visit. Some of my tickets are amongst them.
First up AC/DC at the King’s Hall in Belfast 27/04/91. After Iron Maiden this was probably one of the biggest bands going around to see at the time.
The next two gigs were in October of that year.
I finally got to see Bryan Adams at the Dundonald Ice Bowl on 24/10/91. I had been a fan since the release of Reckless back in the 80s. What I didn’t know was that previous to this gig he had been to Belfast before playing at Maysfield Leisure Centre.
Second gig in October was to see Extreme at the Ulster Hall who were riding on the success of their Extreme II: Pornograffitti, album. One of my work colleagues recommended them.
I had to search the internet to get a copy of a ticket for this one. Big Country paid a visit to Mandela Hall in November. I entered a competition in one of our local papers, The Irish News and won a pair of tickets.
