Fan memory

In 1970 when I was 16 years old I watched Led Zeppelin's first concert at the RAH. I was sitting in the choir behind the stage and it was a great concert. On 31st October 2013 (when I was 59 years old) I watched Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters at the RAH with a poster behind the group showing Robert Palmer looking like he did 43 years ago. It was quite weird and nostalgic to look across at the choir and  remember my younger self sitting there watching the same guy sing the same songs. The atmosphere that the RAH creates made it even more memorable.
