How Many Times Have You Seen TV Live?
« on: May 09, 2005, 09:26:40 AM »
It's list time.

Back in 2002 I complied a list of how many TV gigs I'd seen as I suspected I was approaching my 21st.

...Guess what TV played to celebrate this in The Victoria in Derby on bonfire night in 2002?

By the end of 2002 I had my Silver (25) Anniversary gig at Cambridge, where TV played the Transvestite version of Lies. :? :roll: :lol:

I plan to update the rest of the list at lunch time today.

As Jock is always going on about my lists, I might even publish the full list on the forum.

I know that several TUTS have been to see TV more times than me, so I'm curious how many times you have seen THE GREAT MAN.

I'm one of the lucky few who saw TV in The Adverts in 1977, but then I had a 21 years and 3 months gap until I saw TV in Leeds at the late lamented Duchess.

This means that I didn't catch The Explorers, like C5, The Party Line (playing Channel 5 and The 80's Demo's), like Smithy, and Cheap, like Alan. :mrgreen:  :cry:

...never mind I can't change history, but I'm more than making up for what I missed now. :D

Can't wait for Wednesday and Thursday. :D :D :D

Sometimes it's a bit of a lifeline. Today at work has been naff paperwork all day and I've just stopped at 7:30pm. :P I'm not my usual chirpy self. :(

Yeah! Thanks gawd for the TV Smith Forum and the TUTS. :D

Better go home now though I promised Lisa I'd be home by 8:00pm.

See you real soon mate. :D

And see you Mr TV Smith in 24 hours time. :D

Hm...
« Reply #7 on: May 12, 2005, 06:16:59 PM »
Hm, let me think...
Two gigs in late '99 (UK)
Two in 2000 (German tour in Sept)
Two in 2001 (Germany June and Nov)
Two in 2002 (German tour in May)
4 gigs (!) in 2003 (various German tours)
and finally two more in 2004 (tour in Nov.)

Makes a total of 14!
Not unhappy with that number...  :D
Just around the corner and miles away...

Thanks Fleagle and Alan (didn't they used to be entertainers in the 50's?)

What year did you catch The Adverts Fleag?

I should be able to work out which gigs I've been to with you Alan. :D

When I first strted my list (which I heven't typed up yet) I was includiung which TUTS I went with.

...A list like that was even too much listing for Mr List himself. :wink: :lol:

How many Tv gigs have you been to TUTS?

we just found 2 more for each of us...! both london ones so it looks like its number 30 for mr fleags tonight
yeharr :lol:

re the adverts they were both within a year (77-78 i think 78) one at croydon greyhound and the other at a north london gig - but i cant remember ...roundhouse? rainbow ...those days were a blur ...and 'touring' with the damned was quite a bizarre experience over the years
sad old git that i am
