About this memory

1980 – RAF managed to talk A and M Records into supporting Chris De Burgh on three dates which Chas and Dave pulled out of which were, Liverpool Empire, The Apollo Glasgow and the venue pictured in Dublin.

They nearly didn’t make this concert as the ferry was cancelled from Wales due to bad weather and they arrived knocking on the back door with the Audience in their seats.
