    • That was a long time ago… The Style Council were at their more “funky” period and I remember DC Lee was more than a chorist but singing a lot of songs with Paul Weller. Still got the ticket stub as for all shows I attended. Interested by a scan ?

  1. Yes! Very much so! I collect used ticket stubs from The Style Council and have 72 separate gigs represented, but only 71 that were played. I have scans of others that are not in my collection, but not from the 1987 gig in Paris. The only gig ticket I have from France is their first one in 1983 at Palace Le Theatre.

    If you would like to sell it or get arid of it, I would be interested in it. If not, I fully understand. I keep all my gig tickets as well. A scan, though, is VERY appreciated!!!!

    Merci!
