April 30, 1982. It's a full house at Sydney's
The occasion - a free concert, with tickets given away by
Triple M. The attraction? None other than
Australia's mighty ROSE TATTOO!
The Tatts had spent the better part of 1981 in England, where they had taken the country's
rock circuit by storm. But now they were back home, and on a roll. As Tatts fan Mike Provis
remembers "Rob Riley had settled in and the band was unstoppable at this point. They were
widely acknowledged as the best Aussie live band, even by people who didn't like them!!"
The show, maybe the high point of Rose Tattoo's career, was enjoyed by more than the rabid
horde in attendance...as it was also brodcast live on
Triple M. (Although you had to be there to appreciate the throng of girls, in various
stages of dress, dancing on stage during the encore!)
Here's the set list from that special occasion, when the Tatts
demonstrated - in ear splitting fashion - that ROCK 'N' ROLL IS KING.
