Some one much wiser than myself pulled me back a few stalls and gave me a look to just calm down . The bouncer jumped up to his feet unsure as to what had just happened .Then walked away to side and left everyone else to go down the front.
If you are that bouncer then I send you the up most apologises.
The first time I played Manchester Apollo was in 1977 [with The Radiators] when it was all seated. It's a strange thing but because of that, the venue is never the same in my mind's eye as it is in reality.
