Talking Glasgow ... Leeds ... Nottingham gigs

Between them ive not had time to come on and do a review but heres a bit of one .....
A lot has already been said but ......

Alex "GOLD-DUBS" He is great he has a fantastic set and really gets the crowd into the mood all dancing and singing away However in Nottingham he wasnt centre stage as he was in the previous two and where he "should" be he was high up in a box and all you could see was his head! You could see clearly that this did influence the crowd ... although his set was still playing you couldnt see him and didnt get the same vibe so were a lot quieter and a lot more still

UB40 time came and as they all came out onto the stage the gigs exploded!! From the moment they came on until they went off everyone was dancing and singing away and having a great time
Dunx is feeling very brave this year and has even started to talking more ... dancing a bit more ... and even manages to walk accross the stage to the other side now
Somebody did ask on facebook if anyone got to sing happy birthday to Dunx? I did .... and i also made sure others joind in if only to drown out my singing voice
The set list is amazing Its plain to see that the fans are really happy with it ... as are the band. They are all having a whale of a time up there and thats lovely to see
Poor Rob isnt well at all but carries on like a real trooper bless him

The proof of how well they are doing is there plain as day in the "sold out" venues ...... no more to say on that part is there
If you havnt managed to get to a gig yet .... try your best to get to one or more!! It really is a refreshing to see them all as they are now


Happy band = happy fans and vice versa

Its been lovely to catch up with some loonies that ive not seen for a while and to meet some fans that i didnt know before who have said that they will be going to the gigs on a more regular basis now
Luci it was lovely to see you again its been a while ... hope you had a really great birthday gig
Tom .... thank you for sorting out my wiper bottle! That saved me putting water in where it shouldnt have been

A very special thank you has to go out to the band and the crew that make the whole "gigging season" the most amazing time

Good job you never asked my dad to refill the washer bottle Marg, he'd have given you a full on car maintenance lesson

Having only done 1 gig this tour (oh the shame!) I don't feel qualified to do a review yet so I'm glad you and Tom and all the rest have saved my typing fingers. Have a good day's rest before your next outing
