    My first was in 1983, at Selhurst Park (home to Crystal Palace FC). It was an all-day event, with Gaspar Lawal (I think...), the Undertones and the Thompson Twins as support. The Plays Live album had come out just a short time before (maybe a couple of weeks?). Phil Collins joined Jerry Marrotta (spelling?) on drums after a few tracks. A great experience; it was my first ever rock concert, and well worth the bus all the way from Cumbria and back. Remember buying a sweatshirt that’s long gone, but still have the programme kicking around somewhere. Weather was excellent too, from memory. Saw him again around 87\88 in Birmingham (NEC) and for a final time at Glastonbury, 1994, but that first gig was the best.
