Can anyone help me about a venue I saw OJ playing in early 80s. I may have been a wee bit drunk but seem to remember the venue was half way up Sauchiehall street nearly opposite where M&S is and had a car park next to it. There was a sweeping staircase down to the dancefloor/stage area. I'm sure the Associates were OJs support but my memories were in a slightly drunken state at the time and it was nearly 30 years ago!
Thanks Allan
PS It may have been on same tour in 1981 when OJ played Bannockburn Community Centre.

Think that might of been Mayfair Ballroom.

I remember travelling from Cambridge to Nottingham in the early 80s with a pal down visiting. Unfortunately we got there to find the gig cancelled. I remember feeling the same sense of berft-ment when Southside Johnny cancelled at Strathclyde Uni - boy did I want to see them back then ("Hearts Of Stone" time), but no malice borne to either. Not an entirely germane comment, but you have struck a chord......

Sounds like Roseland to me when I seem to remember The Fire Engines supported them. I still have a poster hidden away somewhere for this concert so will post details if I can find it.
Hi Allan, Sorry about the delay but I managed to find the poster for that gig, a pretty bog standard affair produced - I guess - by the venue rather than Postcard.

It was Roseland in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow & the support was The Fire Engines. 22. April (1981?) and tickets were £2 from Listen, Virgin and Bloggs.

Dunno if I've ever spent a coupla quid as wisely since.
Thanks for that Jamie - my memory is going.........
