    We could be having a second support here. Not yet confirmed. But either way take it as read this one is going to go off, so get your tickets quick smart before they go!

    :m8:

    Very much looking forward to it

    Cool. Is your good lady coming too? Be sure to get there to see Vijay. You won't regret it!

    General note. There is only the one support.

    A few tickets still remaining here. Excellent chance to see two first class guitarists on the same bill. And dare I say, Vijay can even reach a vocal note or two above Nick!

    What can I say? Really, what can I...umm, well it was a two hour plus set of 18 songs, including a 15 minute Temple. Good crowd who listened attentively with just a little banter. Funny moments thrown in and the, what is now becoming legendary, David Cameron quote!
    But that was just a part of the show. There was so much packed in it and many fine moments.

    The new album sold exceedingly well, and one man bought that and asked me to choose another 3 as well for him.

    Linn's only faux pas was when a strange, but rather good looking, bloke came up to her and asked whether she knew him. She was racking her brains as to who it might be, when he gave a clue and then removed the hat he was wearing. Mike Last! Well, it was late by that time and he looked so different with facial stubble!

    One picture here, taken by my professional photographer friend Ian. There will be a further six of his of Nick along with more of Vijay and Mike to accompany a review that will be up on Birmingham Live next week. The few he showed me looked really good.

    Lastly, thanks to Rach at the Hare and Carlo at Birmingham Promoters for such sterling work. And to Vijay and Mike Dignam - yep, a second support was added late... - for their fine sets.

    Nice to catch up again with landells - look forward to seeing your pix too! - and wessexy witch. And of course critch and the delightful Danni, getting her first taste of live Harpic!

    Morning

    A great gig last night. A brilliant venue and a blinding set from Nick - he played a whole load of songs that I'd never heard live before... arguably the best gig I've seen from him

    Anyway, here are a few pics... I'll probably get some more sorted later

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Hi Peeps!

    Great photos there Landells.

    Really enjoyed last night's gig - and Danni loved it. In fact, rather than me ranting on about how good it was, it was a welcome change to be the one listening and agreeing (Love you Danni xxxx :D)

    Loving 38. Loving Silly Daddy. Still think that Blood Song live is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. Bloom was also nerve tingling. Waiting on Danni to sign up to give us a Hair and Clothes review. I myself don't feel qualified (Sorry Paula!)

    And BTW - Hi to everybody. I'm sorry folks that it's been so long since I last posted! I've been busy...very busy...

    LOL! I'll let you off, honey :D So glad Danni loved the gig too! And I do hope we run into each other at a gig this tour... Preston maybe? *hugs*

    It's possible. Easter Weekend is all very busy for me! Hopefully by the 6th though, everything will have settled out - so I might make it up. It'll be tickets on the door I expect. Maybe I should drag my sister... She lives towards that neck of the woods...or maybe not. Probably not her thing. Considering we were brought up in the same house we're remarkably different!
