UEA’s gigs have been part of the fabric of life in our region for decades. Organised by the Student Union and open to the public, some of the biggest names in music have played UEA and the Nick Rayns’ LCR. For thousands of people those UEA gigs hold great memories, not-so-great memories and even gigs that can barely be remembered. We’ve been delving through our archives to look at some key gigs and their impact.
