    Ah that last pic goes along well with my friend's message to me about the SanFran show (sadly, no pics):

    "He did one number that had people really cheering. He was strumming madly on his guitar, singing all the while, and he walked upstairs, around the balcony, came back downstairs and then finished the song by standing on the bar. The crowd went wild."

    Was her first Nick gig and she was suitably beside-herself impressed :D

    Well, at least now I know you ignore everything I post :rolleyes: :D

    First 3 vids are embedded on page 3 of this thread. Good to see Chris added 3 more, originally they were marked "1 of 3" and the like but he's updated! Here's the last 3 below:

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Contact WLS and WGN TV in Chicago for this Friday??

    It would be nice in Nick and Cy could appear on one of the midday newcasts in Chicago on Friday before this Saturday's show! Will they be here in time?

    I mentioned before, but maybe now their schedule is clearer. Both stations like to have musical guests as often as they can. WGN now has two hours to fill and is the local but limited "Superstation." WLS is ABC and in "The Loop" on State Street, downtown Chicago. WGN is closer to the venue and has a more suburban feel. Chicago is the largest/best training ground for network reporters and Broadway Shows (think "Spamalot"). The local news production is the best in the nation!

    Jack, Cy's manager Lisa asked me to pass on her thanks and said: "Unfortunately, the guys will not be arriving in Chicago until Saturday, just hours before the gig."

    Well, make sure Dean Richards at WGN mentions him in his listing of the weekend acts, and maybe Janet Davies (etal.) at WLS. They may give a free promo to LHS also, or even plug the act for Nick's charity work. Other local news on WBBM (CBS), WMAQ (NBC), WFLD (local FOX, they're liberal, unlike the network!) and maybe WTTW (PBS) on their Chicago Tonight program.

    If I'm lucky, the new CD is going to be available at the show!

    An especially cool and edgy performance of Cy's song "Remember Me When I'm Gone" (from the Returning Sun album), filmed at Jammin' Java near Washington DC on Monday night :biggrin:

    Sadly I think Nick sold out of CDs already but do ask him just to make sure! :bored:

    And PLEASE pass info on the shows to everyone you know (including TV and radio stations and papers, listings mags etc) - even if someone's already been in touch with them, it can't hurt!
