None of us had phones, and we didn’t think to take a camera with us
I’ve looked on Youtube and can’t find any footage either. I even managed to lose my school friends for the entire show and had no way of finding them, as we’d spread out in groups and they didn’t even know I was missing!
It was 1987, we were at U2’s Joshua Tree Tour at Wembley Stadium.
Last night, as I sat with my teenage daughter enjoying the view of Harry Styles at Wembley, I reflected on then and now. Harry’s gig was incredible, it was so well executed and organised, he knew how to make everyone feel included. He spoke often of love and kindness and appeared to genuinely speak from his heart and mean everything he said.
It was 12 years ago, that his sister drove him to his first audition in London. As he played to our audience of 80,000, he paid tribute to Freddie Mercury’s Live Aid performance (not Bono).
As far as I know, there were no lost teens, their battery packs were well charged and parents close by. I’ve added a little video of our night here.
What do you remember about your first gig?
