“Before the concert I met my rock idol and his beautiful wife, while they were shopping at Westfield Kotara,” she said.

“What a wonderful friendly couple. I have loved him and his wife for decades as performers, but after this chance meeting, they are just lovely down-to-earth people. Much respect. Oh, and the concert was amazing.”

Floor CollapseThe Alice Cooper gig on Tuesday revived memories of Newcastle’s rock and roll past for Janine Evans, of Raymond Terrace.

Janine posted on the Lost Newcastle Facebook page, asking whether anyone recalled the floor in front of the stagecollapsing at Civic Theatre at a gig in the 1970s.

She initially thought it was an AC/DC concert, but others suggested it could have been Status Quo or Sherbet.

Janine told Topicsthe floor “caved in a bit” at the ‘70s gig, as fans were headbanging.

“We wereright up to the stage back then. You didn’t have a barrier,” she said.

“You had the feeling that you were falling and panicking,trying to get out of something, but not realising what was going on.”

She saidthe gig was stoppedwhile security moved people back from the stage. But the show went on.
