Rush – Newcastle City Hall, 15th February 1978

This was first time I saw the band on their Farewell to Kings Tour. I think we had got into Rush just too late to see them on their previous tour so we made sure that we got tickets for this one. Loved this band back then but went off them a few years later although I still dig out their albums every now and again!
