What gig did you enjoy most in all the years of being a fan?

I recall a few......Zimbabwe early 80's (yes Brian..that ONE)....a great 'surrogate memorials' gig in Gaberone, Botswana, April 1989(When Brian made it known he was a Villa fan)....Milton Keynes open air in 1993...
LOL3 Gig at the NEC in Brum...... easter 1999 during the fan fest...but best of all personally was the gigs in Pretoria, South Africa in 1994 when the UB's broke crowd attendance records and belted out to the NEW SOUTH AFRICA. That was memorable.....a nation previously divided brought together in a stadium by 100% music and attitude!!

Best concert was somewhere in '88 cos it was my first of many...

Most memorable (so far) the one in Goffertpark Nijmegen... all the little cardboards (to carry drinks on) that flew through the air... one big sky of flying cardboards... great sight!! http://www.demo3w.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

For me it has to be the last tour, lol3 at secc in glasgow, it stands out as it had been the first I'd managed to get to since the 80's and it was sooo good to see them live again, they can still do a good show no the best show on earth!!

Roxy, Hollywood 1981, They performed all of 'signing off' & 'present arms', they performed for three nights, two shows a night I believe.
Fantastic performance and met the lads afterwards.
