It was slightly better than the wembley show I saw on the 6th as you couldn't see any of the lights or visuals during the first half of the show due to the sun being directly over the stage. It was exactly the same song list as it didn't vary much during that tour

Yep. Fabulous tour and weren't we all so much younger as well!
It's interesting as time passes, concerts don't seem to hold as much excitement as they did back then. It's a different feeling or have I just been to so many gigs?

The Wembley concerts of course were incredible. It was as if you could shout out 'play this' and they did. The opening chords to Shine On catapulted you into a different sphere of reality as if time stood still.
It's hard to believe it is now 30 years since those days. We were all so lucky to have experienced the visuals, the spectacle, the songs and the event itself. Days you never forget. :D
