5th May 1997. Reef. Support from Travis. The Que Club. Birmingham. Free.

Thanks again to Andy Brand from Sony for the freebie tickets. Travis supporting which is quite odd looking back as they went on to sell many more records than the main act.

Travis were showing their potential here and this was pre the wishy-washy material they bored the masses with later.

This was by far and away the best Reef gig I ever saw. Fantastic Venue. It was Sold Out and the main room lit up was a great sight. The lead singer made the most of his wireless mic and went around the balcony area singing one of their tracks. Seems corny – but this worked very well. Reef are nothing spectacular but a decent original sound that fitted the time well.

Travis 7 out of 10.

Reef 8 out of 10.
