My only visit to said venue was to watch the Birmingham Bulls play MK Bucks? When the Bulls were a well coached outfit and the first to beat the London Ravens
I guess American Football went the same way as Speedway in Birmingham

To make my friend feel better, I'm going to admit to the comparatively minor indiscretion of liking U2.

sneaked in to the MK bowl to see U2 back in the 80s

In fairness I sneaked in to see everyone that played there at the time
us locals knew the easy spots to do the sneaking


I have only been to the Milton Keynes bowl once. David Bowies Sound & Vision tour in 1990.

I was at that. Didn't really like David Bowie, but my mum's friend who worked for a local MK radio station got us free entry and passes into the hospitality tent.  Went in, drank lots of free bear, listened to a couple of songs then fucked off.

And me
Although I thought it was his serious Moonlight tour

Did the same, my best mate lived in an estate that backed onto the Bowl, Shenley Lodge. Sneaked into loads, but even if we failed to get in you could hear everything perfectly in his back garden.


You could
Especially Status Quo

Only ever paid once and that was the last time I went
Took my teenage Son at the time to see Eminem



Because I am as cool as fuck

Bon Jovi, supported by Joan Osbourne who sounds like someone who does part time in Spar but actually had a hit with One Of Us, written by Prince and then promptly vanished.

We were waiting for the gates to open when some bloke turned up in a hatchback flogging cases of beer so we drank that in the sun on a dusty car park and once inside couldn't be bothered queuing for the bogs so used the woods at the top of the hill.

I went with a mate and his two female cousins, any idea of a possible romance vanished as it became apparent that they were two of the most boring people to attend a gig with. They spent all day eating fruit and tutted every time they heard a can being opened.

I'm not angry. I'm upset.

I was only joking, though I did buy Achtung Baby when I was 14, so apologies for that.

I repented soon after. My enduring hatred of them was born around 15 minutes into the film Rattle & Hum. I have never wavered since.

It's too late now. This was supposed to be my Safe Space. The Irish Band have penetrated my echo chamber and I feel soiled.

It's like the time I woke up to find out that Apple had downloaded one of their albums onto my phone. Have never purchased an Apple product since. Am I going to have to run to The Bells Are Ringing, now, to avoid despicable posts of Bono support? To be fair, there aren't really any posts on there so I should be safe.

I hated U2, then went to gig because a fit girl had a spare ticket. I enjoyed it. Went to another gig and not so much.

Bono continues to be an arsehole and I've just had the displeasure of seeing him on News at Ten.

Seeing as we're amongst friends...

On the ferry back from a school trip to France, I put "With or Without You" on the video jukebox.

Not another person I liked letting me down? FFS. You'll be telling me Johnny Rotten loves Donald Trump next.
