I recently visited The Dome and it started me thinking about the time I saw Stevie Wonder performing there, so I came home and searched out my old programmes to discover he played at The Dome on Monday 17th January 1972 in what was called the ‘Stevie Wonder All American Show’. I went with my husband Frank and I remember it was a wonderful show; we were rocking in the aisles and Stevie was amazing. We sat in the stalls with tickets priced at an unbelievable £1.75. During that same year we also saw Jose Feliciano, Labi Siffre, and on the 22nd November 1971 we saw Cliff Richard and the Shadows with Olivia Newton-John.

Reliving happy times
What wonderful days they were and looking back through my old programmes has evoked many happy memories of those great stars. Sadly my dear husband Frank Gilmour has now passed away, but looking at the old programmes brought back some wonderful memories of that time – happy days. I was born and bred in Hove in 1947. Looking through the pages of this site has been very interesting and I will certainly continue to visit to relive old times.
