The Durutti Column > Live at Queen Elizabeth Hall 23 November 1994
The Durutti Column live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank, London, Wednesday 23 November 1994
The Durutti Column live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank, London, Wednesday 23 November 1994. This was an event in the style of Factory concerts of old. There was a drink on the house at the National Film Theatre bar on London's South Bank. Entertainment was provided by 'The Guo Brothers' playing traditional Chinese music. After this, everyone moved inside to the Queen Elizabeth Hall itself for the second support slot, Mark Springer. This was followed by the main attraction, the concert by The Durutti Column. This gig was to promote the release of the Sex and Death album and everyone was surprised, but pleased to see Peter Hook out of New Order guesting on bass. Rob Gray also appeared on vocals and harmonica.
