And then he walked along the edge of the Circle

This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Comments on SLADE [reply]
 
Just ABSOULTELY BRILLIANT both times !
One of THE BEST live bands of all time,,
no doubt.Saw them on the "We'll Bring The House Down"and "Til Deaf Do Us Part" tours"!
Trust me,,if you never saw them live then you missed out BIG TIME! Vardis were a very good support one time,,and Cheetah(Yum yum yum !!)
were er,,Cheetah on the other!

Couldn't agree more. Went to see them on the Til Deaf tour and a couple of mates came along only because Vardis were supporting, they came out raving about how brilliant Slade were! Remember the bog rolls - lobbed out into the crowd (or was that Donnington?) [reply]
 
YES MR.DEVLIN, I WILL AGREE WITH YOU SLADE ARE KILLER IN CONCERT. THE 1ST TIME I SAW THEM WAS 1975 THEY OPEN FOR KISS,IN CATTANOOGA,TN. U.S.A.
THEY HAD A GREAT SHOW JAMMED LIKE ALL HELL.
LATER IN THE SHOW PAUL STANLY LEAD SINGER OF KISS SAID IF IT WAS NOT FOR SLADE KISS WOULD NEVER COME ABOUT. THIS STILL STANDS TRUE TO THIS DAY FOR LOT OF BANDS FROM MY SIDE OF THE BIG POND.

I agree! What a footstompin getdown and getwith it show these guys put on for the apollo faithfull.....like Quo they knew how to ROCK! [reply]
 
First time I saw Slade was this gig - fantastic - remember Merry Xmas Everybody was not on the playlist and the crowd started singing it. Noddy wouldn't sing it in January but encouraged the crowd to sing the full version. Magic.

This was my first gig at the Greens Playhouse;tell my friends and kids who was on the bill - Slade,Suzie and Thin Lizzy - and they just don't believe  it! All for 85p!

aAbsolutely the best gig ever for sheer raw excitement and satisfaction. What a night I tell you.

till death do us part was my first ever gig at the apollo, slade where my first every band seen live, went along with a few mates and when noddy walked on stage and the stage was set like a american church , then noddy screams were rocking and ****ing in glasgow tonight it totally blew me away from start to finish,fantasctic night [reply]
 
My first ever visit to the Apollo was a Slade concert where Thin Lizzie played support in 1972. What an atmosphere, I had never heard music played so loud....brill. This was the start of many visits to the venue mostly to see the mighty Quo. [reply]
