GIG 023: Dare / First Strike – Marquee, 27th July 1989

I was actually a pretty big Dare fan so the chance to see them play live, and at a small venue like The Marquee, was great. I ended up seeing them a couple of times, took quite a few photos of the gigs, and got to meet the band too – so overall I was happy.

They were definitely a product and sound of the time – soft rock was king and metal bands of all stripes were doing well and seemed to be over abundant with touring, charting and releasing new material.

Fun fact for Dare is that the keyboard player was Brian Cox, who has since become much better known for his TV and science work.
