Band prices in 1971

supplied by Roy Penfold

Roy Penfold… Band price list from college events magazine 30 April 1971.

Andy Hemsley… Van Der Graff Generator are good value!

Pete Prescott… Awesome

Kate Recknell-Page… Oh wow certainly remember a lot of those bands – xx

Ian McGilvray… Slade a bargain at £150

Robert Searle… We was a bargain at £20

Nick Bloomfield… I can see why my College booked Hawkwind now at only £150 – bargain!

Graham How… It was a good time for live music. Ace Promotions certainly had many on the list on Hastings Pier.

Tony Court-holmes… Graham and I went to most of them

Paul Cullen… Did you notice that Family were charging £1000 for a gig?

Glenn Piper… Traffic are also on the list as £1000

Dave Nattress… Really interesting!!

Alan Pepper… T.Rex in 1971 would be worth it. That’s my choice ! I think they were at their peak .

Glenn Piper… I saw T-Rex at Brighton Dome October’71

Marianne Zargar… Crikey! Deep Purple £1250. I saw them in London about a year before aged 14 or 15. Must have spent all my Saturday job money for the year! My friend managed to get into Ritchie Blackmore’s dressing room but was promptly thrown out. Sadly I only remember that and not the music. Still playing “Child in Time” on my original 1974 stereo though
