Leicester = Brilliant
 
Had a fab time at Leicester last night.

Without giving too much away, I assumed set list would be identical to the first leg of the tour, but there are many changes. It was the first time i've ever heard Dream a Lie live and it worked brilliantly. I wouldn't have had it down as a live track before but hearing it last night totally changes my mind. Few other nice surprises too but I won't mention anymore in case theres people that don't wanna know. It was a shame Watchdogs was taken off as really enjoyed that on last leg but I guess you can't keep them all and add news stuff.

Quality was fab and the boys seemed to be having a fab time on stage. The only thing that would have made it better is that I think Earl should do the rap part on RRW. He would be brilliant at it. I dunno why it hasn't been done.Hopefully he'll give it a go at some point.

The crown was brilliant - clearly loving it all, and not just the hits but all of the new stuff and lesser know stuff too. Lots of noise and dancing. It was nice to see Eamonn and the Crump brothers propping up the front barrier.

Being 32 weeks pregnant, unfortunately I had to sit a few songs out and didn't manage to dance through the entire set as usual, but Luce found us a nice little balcony with clean carpet down were I could spend the odd song watching the show from the floor. Great to catch up with a few loonies including Mr Sid afterwards.

Really hope to get to another show before the tour ends but we shall see.

For the loonies that have yet to go - you're in for such a treat xxx

Excellent review Helena it sounds like you had as good a time as I did at Oxford; you're lucky baby didn't decide to make an early appearance during the concert. Best wishes with the rest of your pregnancy. :beer:

I think Morphy Richards would be more suitable as Earl's toasting would be of a far higher standard :haha: :haha:

Have to say that the shortened RRW works better for me.

Glad you had a good time Hels :D

dropping it would be even better. ( slips out through the trap door)

Thanks helena :) nice review.

Earl doing RRW, There's nothing stopping them trying it, it's not a bad idea.

RRW being two minutes shorter is better by me.

Astro buggering off to join the refuge of the unintelligent, the feral and the chavs is just fine.

We have the talented core of UB40 left and suits the rest of us perfectly.
