Re: Your most recent gig

It was a while back, but my last gig was seeing Prince in the Indigo2 at the O2 Arena in 2007. I made the trip from Glasgow to London to see 5 of his shows during his 21 nights there. The mains stage shows were good, but the Indigo2 experience was fantastic, totally different each night

Re: Your most recent gig

Hackett at The Robin 2, Bilston, West Midlands

Two evenings ago on the 18th. I was surprised to see one half of Kajagoogoo playing with him (not literally) but what a bass player! That Chapman Stick is a superb-sounding instrument. And who's that young blonde lady playing some occasional rhythm guitar and singing backing vocals? Amanda ??? She's not mentioned on his website anyway. She has the most gorgeous pair of pins I've seen in a long time - my photos don't do her or them justice (not that good looks is a prerequisite of being a good musician). An excellent gig and I don't think I'll get that perfect vantage point again so it was a pity I didn't take my camera and had to make do with my mobile phone cam.

Re: Your most recent gig

Fleetwood Mac at Manchester Evening News Arena about three weeks ago. Absolutely superb from the first note to the last. Even better than when I saw them in 2004.

Also this year I've seen America, Crosby Stills & Nash, Eagles, Ralph McTell, and John Lee's Barclay James Harvest. All excellent.

Its been a vintage year.
