I can recall this concert .
The curtain opened, and if I remember correctly, the stage was bare all but a lit, single, standard lamp. I was like…”Boo! - what a rip off, give my £5 back.”( yeh! £5).
The opening song was sung….
"A.D. 1928" - STYX.
"Tonight’s the night we’ll make history, as sure as dogs can fly,
And I’ll take any risk to tie back the hands of time,
And stay with you here all night.
So take your seats and don’t be late, we need your spirits high.
To turn on these theatre lights and brighten the darkest skies
Here at the Paradise….
Then….BAM. Pyro technics, a big illuminated ‘Paradise Theatre’ logo was turned on and Yeh! an amazing show was to be experienced.
Oh, and Yeh, I buy the shirt.
