Artefact

Big f*#ck off poster my sister had up on her bedroom wall after going to Led Zep concert at Earl's Court.It was up there with all the Bowie/Roxy/Cockney Rebel and even Leo Sayer (in his "clown" phase) stuff plastered over every wall.
Well obviously such uber bands could commission their own private trains to ferry their legions of fans from all points of the compass, including Manchester.Don't recall any record shop/ticket outlet called Himes and Addison....?
(just realised it's too small to read on the upload).
I know my sister used to go to The Ranch but I don't know if that was a going concern around this time........

Himes and Addison were a piano dealers/ music shop. In later life their shop sold records and obviously sold tickets too.

Hime & Addison was located on John Dalton Street. They sold tickets from a small booth at the rear of the shop. I remember queuing all night for tickets for Led Zep at Earl's Court (they played from 8.30pm til midnight on the Saturday night - value for money in those days) and also for ELP at the Free Trade Hall!
