A gig. A concert. A festival. A happening. One of life’s pleasures, yes? You could be in the back room of a pub, a town hall, an arena or a football stadium, and the magic happens. Elevation! Elation! Eruption! Having the time of your life, and not always for what happens on the stage.

Authors Mark Baxter and Stuart Deabill have produced a brand new book, Every Ticket Tells A Story and asked over 60 very different contributors from all walks of life, to share their favourite live music tale.

Musicians Mick Talbot and Rhoda Dakar, photographers Gered Mankowitz and Darren Russell, actors Johnny Harris and Lorraine Stanley, industry icons Andrew Loog Oldham and many others from the arts and the street relay their memories of watching the likes as The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, New York Dolls, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Bill Haley, The Clash, The Jam, Sex Pistols, The Who, Curtis Mayfield, Take That, Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, Ella Fitzgerald, Kylie, Liam Gallagher, The Stone Roses, Cypress Hill, Paul Weller, R.E.M. and many other artists from across the decades.
