Rory-Gallagher-Athens-1981Image taken from his historic 1981 live performance in Athens, the first rock concert of such a scale in Greece after the unfinished 1967 Rolling Stones concert. Due to the blatant and unreasonable aggression of the police forces the live was marked by the violent incidents during and after Rory’s show. According to Rory Gallagher “the concert was amazing, but very dangerous. I thought that i didn’t want to die in a Greek football ground”. Despite the problems of the night, Rory’s live went down as the one which paved the way for all the upcoming rock concerts in Greece.
