This ad appeared in the Evening Telegraph on the actual night of the gig, so I don't think it would leave much time to nip down to Larg's to grab a ticket!
Not a show I was at, but I do recall a few years later catching Family singer, Roger Chapman, performing at the Bowling Alley.
[ On the subject of family (tangentially speaking) here's a wee bit of Dundee related music trivia most of you won't know about.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that my mate, Tam Hughes, left Dundee for London in 1980 and after a period of time started up his own business "Tam's Dairies".
Well he married in 1982, and one of the bridesmaids at his wedding was 5 year old Emma Bunton, who later went on to be Baby Spice of the Spice Girls. Tam is in fact Emma's uncle.
When Tam's daughter had her 13th birthday party, the Spice Girls made their first ever public performance, a show which included the song "Wannabe", a year before it became their debut single - (he has the video of it too!).
And Emma was in Tam's hoose on the day they heard the Spice Girls reached No 1 in the charts.
He and his family have been part of the Spice Girls entourage on many occasions, and needless to say he has quite a few more stories that have spiced up his life since leaving Dundee! ]
