The 50 greatest gigs of all time: Plymouth's iconic concerts

27 Sparks

Plymouth Argyle’s Home Park stadium has witnessed some incredible performers: Pele, Rod Steward, Ruud Gullit, Meatloaf and Mickey Evans among them, but surely the strangest event at the stadium was by US pop-rockers Sparks.

Even among the eccentricities of the glam era, the Mael brothers Russell (the pretty one) and Ron (the one who looked like Hitler) stood out as particularly loopy.

They performed in what was called a “mobile theatre” in 1974. Sparks were also, of course, exceptional, and that year had a monster hit with the single This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us.
