So this would have been the (in)famous 'no-show' concert that Morrissey still talks about.

Hi Redmist, would love to use your image of the ticket for a piece in the M.E.N on the Hardrock - would that be possible? Let me know if so and who we should credit the image to. Cheers, Chris

Stretford's 'Hardrock' down memory lane

TRAFFORD'S old school rockers are being urged to get-in-touch with any tales or memorabilia they have about a venue where Led Zeppelin and Ziggy Stardust once performed.

Author Bill Mather is currently researching the history of Stretford's 3,000-capacity Hardrock' concert theatre.

Sadly the venue - that's not to be mistaken with the mainstream Hard Rock Café global brand - was prominent for only a fleeting moment, opening in 1972 and closing in 1975.

But the list of artists who played at the site, now occupied by B&Q on Greatstone Road, represents a Who's Who' of the time.


Bill told SUM: "I am researching a book about the Hardrock and would be interested to talk to people who may have attended any of the concerts at the venue.

"I'm particularly keen to hear from anyone who has old ticket
