Aylesbury
 
Me and the Mrs and our mate arrived in Aylesbury mid afternoon checked into the Travelodge which was right next to the venue overlooking the canal. Had a couple of cheeky ones in the room, and then nipped over to the boozer which was opposite the venue. The venue itself was very impressive (from an architectural perspective:razz:) we bumped into and said hello to Michelle who was in the 3 woman queue! Good to see you again Michelle. Anyway big queues in the pub whist waiting who should come in only our own Mr Travers and Mr Parry 😀 treated the boys to a beer 🍺🍺 as they were struggling to get served. Spent probably half an hour chatting to them both outside what a pair of gents the Mrs and her mate were over the moon, it was just like chatting to your mates!! Anyway to the gig we had seats in the gods I thought people would stand up but I don't think some of the people around us even had a pulse! So I went downstairs to join the masses. The place was rocking the boys absolutely smashed it!! Loved the set, great mix of old and new thank you UB40 for a fantastic day/night this band will go on for ever!!! viva UB40 I hope all those who are going to gigs have just a good a time as we did thanks again!

Didn't know they were letting just anyone in downstairs Skeggsy :wink: Lovely to see you, albeit briefly and meet Mrs S too. We saw lots of dancing folk up in the gods, they must have put you in the OAP section :laff:

Great venue and evening but you could have crawled home to Herts from there :lol:

Great read that Steve. Sounds like it was a fantastic night. My daughter and myself were lucky enough to have a drink in the pub with Brian and Laurence (always seems to be these two...lol :grin: ) and few other loonies a couple of years ago at a Manchester gig :) x
