Nothing embarrassing at all about seeing the band for the first time - we all have to start somewhere and just think of the millions that have (and won't) never seen em.

It's the NOW that's important. It doesn't matter how many gigs you go to imho. A fan is a fan. Bless You!
Agreed!

I just put my ''vote'' on. Until now it is 15 times, Leuven will be the 16th. Only saw the band twice with Hugh and though I ''follow'' them since 1977, my first gig was in 1985 in Utrecht. Their first gig with Paul Roberts in Rotterdam impressed me very much that was in june 91. Saw them in Paris last year though without Jet, it still was good. Hope Jet will be with them in Leuven and the best would be if they keep playing Sewer!

Saw Hugh solo on four occasions, twice in Paradiso, once a double set(accoustic and electric) unfortunately for a very small audience (circa 100 people attended!) but it did'nt bother him that's the spirit!

I will stick to Hugh live from now on. Sorry if this offends all just being honest thats all.

Twice in the Eighties (Aural Sculpture and Dreamtime Tours) so obviously with Hugh. Once this decade, not the same tbh. without Hugh.

One gig they came on in what can only be described as 'Bank Suits' with Bowler hats. Straight into 'No More Heroes'. It was at The Edinburgh Playhouse. Place got wrecked.

Bouncers always tried to get people to sit, wasn't going to happen. :grin:

Latest count brings me to around 120 Stranglers gigs. Divided by 32 thats 3.75 gigs per year since I first saw them in 1979. I'm sure that the average should have been a round 4 gigs per year but the outstanding 0.25's must account for the piss breaks I took during 'Golden Brown' & 'Always The Sun' over the years.
