As I told in my introduction that concert in Sneek at 8/1/1980 was the first time I saw Rory Gallagher live. And the day after, at about 10 o’clock in the morning, I was discussing the concert in the music store and then all of a sudden Rory walked in and looked at some records and left after a minute or so. I still cherish that moment. It was even so that I was aware of that moment at the first of august 2010 when it was exact 30 years later. I suppose he took a hotel here in my city called Leeuwarden. Has anyone an idea which hotel that might have been?

Hi wim. Great pictures of the concert in Sneek! I get the chills from them! It brings me right back at that time. And I start to remember something: It was loud! On the poster the address where you could buy the tickets for the concert is also mentioned: Bij de Put-Leeuwarden. Well that’s where Gallagher walked in that Saturday morning. And I also remember reading that news-paper article. It was from the Leeuwarder Courant if I’m correct. Great stuff! I’ll investigate you website some further. Bedankt!
Theo

it's great when people who were on the same concert meet here on the forum. 32 years later guys, very cool
