Short-lived high times at the Big Apple
Fifty years ago today, Fleetwood Mac performed at the Big Apple above the Regent Cinema in Queens Road, Brighton. This ticket for the concert was purchased from Expansion Records in Middle Street (the spelling of the record store on the ink stamp differs slightly).
Big Apple was a short-lived venue. Yet in the five months it existed the likes of Pink Floyd, T-Rex, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks would grace the former ballroom’s stage.
