Rock On The Tyne 1981.
A 2 day event at the Gateshead Athletic Stadium.
I was there on the second day to see Rory who was headlining.
Seem to remember it was a nice sunny day.
Local heroes Lindisfarne got the the crowd going in the afternoon.
Dr. Feelgood upped the tempo early evening, then Rory finished things off.
The one thing I remember about Rory's set was the addition of the 2 sax players who featured on Nadine and Sea Cruise among others.

Here's a good webpage with info and pics.

Just noticed this gig was promoted by Barry McKay - love that bloke.
He's a good un. Mate of a mate of mine.
Barry put his heart, soul and money into music in Newcastle ... but was driven out by the gangsters, gave up, came to London and made money in the property business. I last bumped into him with wife Fleur and kids in Sainsburys in 2000. Didn't hear from him for years until I read this in the paper ... good luck to him I say.
