Hi, I'm looking for information on what was James Brown's first concert in Spain. According to my data it was in Madrid in 1986, but certain information tells me that it was in Benidorm at the end of the 70s, although I cannot verify it. I would appreciate any kind of information. Thank you

Why can't you merge the two JB, and use the proper James Brown spelling (not "james brown")?
