Rain - Sheffield 1991?

Hi there

Hoping some super fan might be able to help me out here.

I've just been going through my vinyl after a declutter and my ticket for 'Rain' at Sheffield Poly on 7th November 1991 fell out of my Live Forever 7" sleeve. I often put old ticket stubs with vinyl or CDs but forgot I had this.

I can't find any record of Rain playing Sheff Poly that year but I have always believed I saw the band that became Oasis that night. I was obviously sure enough to put the ticket stub with the single 3 years later.

My recollections were that they were northern, loud and not great to be honest. Mind you, I was on the wrong end of a scrumpy session.

Can anyone confirm that they did/didn't play this gig? Did anyone else go? It was a headline slot, no support that I remember.

Thanks

James

did gem archer play in Rain or was it Andy Bell. I thought one played in Rain and one in Hurricane # before joining Oasis much later. Or was Rain with Liam before Noel joined. I should know these things but I dont. I first saw Oasis at Knebworth in 1996

Rain (often mistaken as The Rain) was Liam's band before Noel joined.

I don't know when or where they played but if you have a ticket and can remember being there then I guess they played the gig.

Thanks, just wondered if it was a different Rain as the gig isn't listed in the gigography. And cheers for the first reply too. Saw Andy Bell with Ride a couple of times in 1991/92 as well. They were cracking!

thanks wonsaponatime, must be my age to confuse Ride with Rain but then again I did have a brain scan recently because I keep mixing up words, results on Wednesday.
