I am going to UK for 4days and Sham 69 has a concert near the plce I am staying. I would really like to see (and hear) them live, but I am also quite afraid. I know, there have rumours in UK that they are conected to skinheads (and also the nazi-skins). As I am going there with my brother, who is not a great fan of punk but he said that it sounds ok and will come with me if I want to; but we both are strongly against nacism... soo, my question is, if anybody knows if the concert is safe or if it is probable there will be any fights and so on...
Also, if anybody knows or can guess the usual playlist?

Thanks:)

I doubt there will be any fights, or even mosh pits. I saw them live a couple of years ago and it was fine.

You'll be fine: all that stuff at punk shows stopped happening after the 80s.

Hey Anka :D Iīve been at their gig back in ī08. They played in Kadaň which is so close to Chomutov, so I went there. The ticket cost like 250 CZK, cuz there were other local bands. It was a small venue, so not a lot of people. Lots of Punks. Guess no Nazis n some Skins were there, but it was ok. I donīt remeber the set-list, cuz was too drunk, but I had some videos of that in my phone. They played very fast punk n the classic if the kids....;) N I got a ticket for free from some guy, which was cool. Ahh Sham played like at 01.00 a.m. so everybody was tired instead of us. Me, my brother n like 5 or 6 other punks were dancinī pogo. But it was a very sad view, cuz legends played n all those young punx were too fuckinī tired to support, so they had to be very dissapointed. I donīt even know, why they played there ;)

I can't remember. I'm positive they played "what have we got" and I think they played "If the kids are united"
