This was the first time these 2 legends of rock 'n' roll had toured the UK, and in Eddie's case it was also to be his last. A couple of months later in April, he died in a car crash in England.
The photo of Gene Vincent on stage at the Caird Hall looks as if it was taken by the drummer!
The audience in shot look excited, but well behaved at this point, however, there was a genuine, good old rock 'n' roll riot took place during the gig! The crowd also invaded the stage, and as a result, rock 'n' roll itself was banned from the Caird Hall for a couple of years!!
The stub was for the 2nd show that day which started at 8.45. The 1st show was a 6.15 start.
Tickets were purchased from Larg's in Whitehall Street with prices starting at 2/6 (12p). The one above is 3/6 (17p) and those who could afford the front area had to splash out 7/6, a whopping 37p!!
Backing band was Marty Wilde's Wildcats (Kim's father). UK singer, Vince Eager was also on.
