Shows Seen

Well depending on whether you get to the page first or later when visiting my site, you may come to the conclusion that I’ve seen one or two shows over the years. Well here is the list, as best as I can remember. I reserve right to amend as my memory improves, as this list was compiled with the aid of programmes I’ve bought, and I didn’t buy programmes at every show, almost but not quite!

Oh and the numbers in brackets are the number of times I’ve seen them.
