I Was There - Gigs That Changed The World

Sex Pistols, Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall, 4th June 1976


As much a gig as it is now stuff of myth and folklore, an estimated 40 people paid 50p to see a band that would change their lives and send shockwaves throughout the music world. The entire history of Manchester music of the past 45 years can be traced to this gig.
