As PR man Keith Thompson was publicizing the forthcoming 2008 return to Liverpool gig, a photographer Alan Perry came forward with some photographs of the fateful 1976 gig which effectively saw the end of Mark IV.
Keith said: “I had only ever seen one grainy photo and heard one amateur recording of the gig on cassette tape so it was a true revelation when these came to light. More than anything though, we?re all looking forward to what Glenn can do in 2008. From the evidence of the gigs I saw recently in Eastern Europe, I think the Liverpudlians will be impressed!”
