29th September 1980 Carlisle Market Hall.
I remember a few things about this show.
First thing is that this was the nearest Rory played to my home town of Dumfries which is 30 miles from Carlisle.
I usually had to travel to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle to see Rory, round trips of about 180 miles.
The main thing I do remember about this gig was the sound in the hall. It was really, really loud and terribly distorted. It may have been the hall acoustics to blame. I ended up standing right at the back where the sound seemed to be a bit better.
This was also the first time I noticed Rory using Marshall amps.
And this was also the first time I failed to speak to Rory after the show!!!! The stewards would not let me stay behind in the hall. Outside, I found the backstage entrance which was a drive in area for loading etc. I walked in half way and got stopped by one elderly caretaker who would not let me go any further despite my pleading.
I waited for ten minutes and then a car appeared and drove out with Rory in the passengers seat. I got a picture as the car went by, not sure if Rory recognised me or just smiling for the camera.
It's great to have these memories and pictures as reminders of seeing the great Rory Gallagher.

Hey Fenderbass,

It's worth every minute continuing to put these dates up of Rory's history. With unique posts and pictures such as yours :)

Priceless! Thanks a million :)

Slainte, Jay Jay

PS. I was away the weekend and nearly didn't put the dates up at all. I'm glad that I eventually did.

Great photos fenderbass! But what a disappointment for you. I´d have been quite upset at not getting to chat to Rory after travelling all that way.
