Default liverpool gig event.

We arrived at the venue around 4.30pm not long later the bus arrived with the members of the band on, some stopped to get photo's taken and sign autographs. They then went inside to do the sound check (sounded good to us standing outside) after a quick pint, we made it back to the side door after about 10 minutes Jimmy came out and took the piss out of my brother for not having a pen that worked and a camera that he didnt know how to use, after about 10 mins finally got my picture taken with Jimmy who by this time was freezing.... got a picture with earl a while later, by now its gone 8 o'clock so we venture inside to find our seats.

5 mins after being in our seats the light go down and Tyler bursts into full swing, for the rest of the first half you could spot who knew the old stuff and who didnt, i really enjoyed the first half ... 15 min break and i spot the loonies on the front so go down to say hi to marg and friends ... spotted kate13 so go to say hi to her aswell. Lights go down for the second half and the boys are back on stage, performing the newer stuff for the softcore fans and the place takes off. Laughing at brian shouting at people on the front row to get up and dance, and as quick as they come on stage it felt like no time at all before it was over, i head back to the loonies and say bye to them and head back around to the side door.

After a short while the members of the band start coming out, I get my picture taken with them all one by one, have a conversation with norman, then Robin Astro and Brian come out... brian shout "alright Noel" so i stand and chat to Brian, about footy of course. They we walk upto the bus with Brian and Norman say our goodbyes, it was a pleasure and a honor to spend time with the guys ... after 30 years my dream finally came true and i left for home the happiest man on merseyside !!

Just want to say thanks to UB40 for giving me so much pleasure on 25th Octobre 2011, as I said earlier I was the happiest man alive because I met UB40.... Here's to the next amazing years of listening to them ... cheers
