I was at this show. Then 16. Unforgettable.
Drunken Cult fans booed as they took the stage. I wanted to tell them how cool the band was. I needn’t have worried. ‘Port had been in this situation before. They opened with Scarlet Woman, and after the first flourish the crowd began to sit back down and take notice. Still to this day one of the greatest performances I have ever seen.
Love it. Thanks for the memory, Frank.
