First gig (the truthful version): Take That at Wembley Arena in 1993. I was 8 years old so in my mind that’s totally acceptable. Willing to admit that I cried because it was too loud.
First ‘proper’ gig: Sum 41 at London’s Astoria in 2001. The golden era of pop punk in all its messy glory.
Best gig: Bit of a toughy but one that always stands out is No Doubt at O2 Academy Brixton in 2002. Bucketloads of ruddy good fun.
