    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    St helens has now been postered and flyered. Hopefully that'll help sales a bit.

    I've not heard anything from the star, but i'm keeping my fingers crossed for this thursday.

    Dunno yet. It's a delivered paper so not got it yet! I'll look as soon as it arrives and let people know.

    Aldershot gig

    Yeah woman! Know what you mean! Aldershot's not the easiest place to get to and from late at night on public tranysport... but determined to get there... if he can make it to Everest then I'm sure I can manage it. Any nice warm park benches there for the night?... not for stalking I hasten to add!

    Is he being recorded in the Williamson Tunnel of Love? Might be an unusual acoustic effect? My friend used to get the best sound by sticking his amp facing a large old Victorian fireplace. Don't forget your miner's lamps with the hard hats! Don't forget also to enquirewhen he's going to organise the deepest gig underwater or on Richard Branson's Virgin Galactica in space!

    I have confirmation, the article is in the paper. Apparently it's about a third of a page with photo. That's about the same as that lister bloke last week. However, i've not seen it yet myself. I shall scan it in tomorrow if anyone wants to see it.

    It's the same as on the link above.

    74 seats remaining here. A few have gone today as well as during the week after 'the lad' dropped the publicity stuff off!

    Hopefully they'll start selling tomorrow and saturday. I imagine that there might be a few notice the article and go. The flyers probably helped - and are still helping, and people might just prefer to buy in person so be waiting til saturday when they're off work to do it.

    Hope so anyway! I know of a few people thinking of going who haven't got tickets yet.

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Yeah well, don't say I didn't warn you!!!


    I think, baring the people causing major disruption (and let's hope their barred!) a great night was had by all. Certainly me anyway - but I'm biased.

    Nick seemed on form - including upon request a fantastic rendition of Karmageddon, which brought back memories of when I first heard him. Fantabulous.

    I said to our kid last night.........

    Nicks ready to tell St Helens about his life changing stories, but St Helens isn't entirely ready for him.

    Its always enojoyable watching Nick even with all the distractions, but the best quote of the night had to be :

    Nick : aw they've kicked them out, I was just getting to communicate with them
    Famale audience member : We did communicate with them, we told them to F*** off.
