Palace Theatre

I was at the concert at the Palace Theatre on the 23 March  - can't remember the year.

The concert was brilliant. My friend and I were on the front row. Everyone was jumping up and down and there was a worry the mezzanine was not strong enough, so everyone was told to sit down.

Still listening to those artists today  - an evening I have never forgot.

The Mothers Of Invention – the most controversial group in the world today – are to tour Britain from May 30.

This will be the first time that the group has been seen in Britain outside London. They first came here from America in 1967 for a concert at the Royal Albert Hall and, in 1968, appeared at the Royal Festival Hall. Both concerts drew mixed reviews, ranging from adulation to denegration.

The tour opens on May 30 at Birmingham Town Hall and continues at the City Hall, Newcastle (31), Palace Theatre, Manchester (June 1), Colston Hall, Bristol (3), Guildhall, Portsmouth (5), and London's Royal Albert Hall (6).

The Mothers will play the whole of each concert, with no supporting acts.

A new album "Mothermania," subtitled "The Best Of The Mothers," was released this week by Verve.

The group, led by Frank Zappa, are expected to arrive in Britain two or three days before the first show.

BTW I went to the Palace Show - I think they did two shows that day, a matinee and a later show. And I thought they were great!
