This is a site devoted to the history of Sheffield Rock & Pop music. We all know about the famous bands that come from the Steel City, but we want to devote some space to the bands that nearly made it as well.
Contributions of any kind welcomed – photos, reviews, memories, tickets, flyers, all welcomed. We know most readers will have some memorabilia tucked away in a dusty drawer 😉
Midnight Choir added to the band listing, plus some more tickets
Thanks to Patrick’s sterling efforts, our general gig list has expanded to cover the first half of 1983 😉
Found on youtub. ELP live at the City Hall March 1971. December 1971 and November 1972

Setlist included: Message To The Martians / Shakespeare Rock / Disco Baby / She’s A Disease / You’re Too Cruel. Encore: Leaving Here (Motorhead cover)
As well as a fairly extensive listing of City Hall gigs, we’ve started a more general gig list, just 1980 so far, but feel free to let me have listings (ideally formatted as band,support/s,date,venue,town)
and I can add them 😉
The Priory of Brion grew out of a reunion between Robert Plant and his old friend Kevyn Gammond from the Band of Joy. The origins of the band were in the Performing Arts faculty at Kidderminster College, where at least two of the members worked and where the others may have been students.
Here’s the setlist: Season of the Witch/Morning Dew/A House Is Not a Motel/A Wondrous Place/Girl From the North Country/If I were A Carpenter/Darkness Darkness/Think/Early in the Morning/We’re Gonna Groove/Baby Please Don’t Go/No Regrets/Gloria/Trouble in Mind/Evil Woman/High School Confidential
