Knebworth concerts

I remember calling into Harlequin record store next to Waterloo Station on the morning the tickets went on sale for the 4th August show... and within minutes (no queue) had two tickets in my hand...none of this e-mail/ballot stuff (I'll come to that later!).

The journey on the train from London's Kings Cross station was memorable, as my cousin (Pete 17) and myself just 19 gasped at the number of fans gathering as we approached Stevange station. Then the shuttle bus to the site and then the memories from the two 78 Knebworth shows (Genesis, then later that year Zappa and the Tubes)...but seeing Zeppelin this must be something else...and of course it was! Having already read most of the other fan's reviews there is little more to add about the show, other than the amazing set length, it seemed to be over 3 hours...the show had everythng you could ask for and more (even a DVD 25 years later!). Then the trudge back to Stevange station after the show, the live rails had to be turned off as everyone was walking along the railway line! The 2nd show on the 11th was slightly shorter but just as enjoyable (I still have a spare ticket for that show!) and I remember an American girl next to me at the front firing off a starting pistol throughout the set...!This year I applied for the Ahmet Tribute and like most fans, was unsuccessful, and thinking no more of it decided to go abroad for a few weeks. On my return, on my e-mail, a second ballot had taken place and I had been awarded the opportunity to buy 2 tickets...I returned to UK on 15th Dec... Typical! Let's just hope for a UK tour, if not thanks for some great memories!
