Monday 29 March 2021. Happy Birthday to the iconic ROYAL ALBERT HALL venue which is 150 today. 29 March 1871 - 29 March 2021. The foundation stone rests below seat - stalls row k, row 11, seat 87.
Needless to say I have seen loads of great shows there over the years. In the 1970s I saw Bryan Ferry, Abba, Osmonds, Kate Bush, Dusty Springfield. From the 1980s onwards I saw the likes of Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, The Who, Oasis, Deep Purple, Paul Weller, Stereophonics, Spinal Tap , Bruce Springsteen (acoustic), Eric Clapton, all four Cream reunion shows in 2005, Sting, Van Morrison, Lou Reed, David Gilmour , Bob Dylan, The Damned, many Teenage Cancer Trust shows and many others. Many of the above artists I have seen multiple times at The Royal Albert Hall. 107 shows seen there by me from 1977 to 2002 - see venue search on raysgigs for full list. 300 plus shows seen there by me from 2002 to the present day....see individual reviews.
