Wink Birmingham Odean 1980

I'm a metal fan from the late 70s who went to see Saxon at the Odeon on New Street Birmingham late in 1980, I'd just seen Iron Maiden and AC/DC at the Odeon (Back in Black) and managed to touch Angus Young's leg as he was past around the ground floor. Saxon was metal at its best, head banging was almost outlawed for anyone remembering these times due to a few deaths publicised in the press. My next concerts through 81/82/83 were Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Gillian, Sabbath, Scorpions, Tygers of Pan Tang, MSG, Ozzy, Rush, Motorhead, Rainbow, Robert Plant and then Ultravox 31/05/84, a gig never to be repeated. The list goes on (still counting at 115). Anyway I want to find out when the Saxon gig was & who supported and anything anyone out there remembers. A blast from the past. Andy C
