I have nothing so cool as a first concert as my first visit to the RAH. I visited in about 1975 to see a country dance show with my junior school - I can't remember anything about the dancing, but the huge white 'plates' on the ceiling left an everlasting memory, one I still gaze up at when we come to an event now.
