And then he walked along the edge of the Circle

This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Comments on Meat Loaf [reply]
 
1983 the midnight at the lost and found tour. i'm was not a huge fan of the fat one but this gig was one on the finest i've been to. meat loaf was genuinely bowled over by the crowd. during the encore were were all chanting the usual "here we go" ditty. mr loaf came on in a kilt and started hopping about the stage in rhythm to the crowds chant. then during a number (i don't remember which) he came on stage with a hammer and started destroying a small part of the set. i remember the band looking on in hilarious disbelief. great performancel. one he never bettered.

This is the first gig i took my wife to, wish i had left her there lol. It was a great night meat came on with this chick who was dressed in suspenders & co, she certainly had my attention as well as all the guys around. There was one guy who managed to climb onto the stage and did a bit of headbanging with meat. This guy asked for the acoustic guitar meat was playing but he wouldnt let the guy play it. Soon after that meat told the guy to beat it off the stage and ive never forgot it, he walked to the front of the stage and swan dived into the crowd. The rest of the band run over to look where this guy had landed, surely he must have broke his neck i never saw him again, maybe hes still there swimming in the ozze of sweat thats dripped of the stage. What a night great gig Glasgow so sad she's still not with us. [reply]
