In the Pier Ballroom

In the 1970s the Pier remained an important and profitable venue for rock concerts.

Fashion for men in the 1970s was more flamboyant than for decades previously. In the early 1970s, platform shoes and bell bottom trousers were staples, and wide-collar shirts in loud, patterned materials worn with three-piece disco suits like John Travolta in ‘Saturday Night Fever’. Leisure suits and track suits also featured, although the release of the film Quadrophenia in 1978 sparked a bit of a Mod revival.
