Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
I saw many bands during the early seventies right up to the eighties.
Seeing the Beach Boys (without Brian) at the Empire in May 1972 was a memorable one. They were promoting 'So Tough' and had new members Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar on board.
They played stuff from 'Surf's Up' and 'So Tough' plus all the hits. The highlight however, was Dennis Wilson singing 'Cuddle Up' alone on the piano; he brought the house down.
Wonderful evening that was.
