I’d got into moe. around the same time as I’d got into Phish and the other jam bands that filled the void after the death of the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia. At around this time quite a few bands of that ilk were coming over and doing the odd shows in the UK. If I recall correctly this was the only headline show by moe. this year although they did do a couple of other shows supporting Little Feat in London, Newport and Wolverhampton.
As much as I would have liked to have seen Little Feat with moe. as support the tickets were probably very expensive so I was happy to go and see moe. doing their first UK headline show. If I recall correctly magic mushrooms were “legal’ at this point in time which is probably why the night is a bit of a blur. It may also explain why my recording of the first set ended suddenly! But I digress! I seem to recall I enjoyed the gig very much and met up with a load of friends.
I can’t find a ticket so I did wonder if this was the start of e-tickets or if I have just misplaced it. I do have the setlist though!
