Tony Brooke- A+R Report

A list of every concert and club show I went to, until I stopped keeping track in 1998...

(Also see Tony's professional client list and discography)

OK, so this is admittedly pretty stupid. Once I started this list, it got out of control, growing to around 500 shows. Think of it as a massive A+R scouting report, or my musical confessional; I've got nothing to hide!! I look back over this list and it brings back many memories.

If you've got any doubts that I know music, check out the many obscure bands, and a few big names before they were big. A question mark means that I didn't catch the name. This covers my first shows (1976/1983) through 1998, when I stopped keeping track. At that point I was working more shows as an audio engineer and less often attending as a fan. Except for one killer week during September 2000, which I just had to add...

This list last updated September, 2000
