In town tonight

Another ticket from our archives; as you’ll see it is a complimentary, given out to staff at local record shops and in this case never used.  The gig was actually reviewed in the NME the following week and may have been part of the Be Stiff tour.  It took place at Sheffield Polytechnic in the main hall at the student union. I think this would be before the Phoenix building opened.  It looks like the Ents ticket designer was a little fixated with the rock band Budgie, as that was the design on one of their album sleeves (done originally by Roger Dean). Why do I remember all this stuff? Eric was promoting his debut Stiff release at the time. Simon R.
