Default symphony hall

Top night!
we met tom and carolanne in wetherspoons about 5.30..got some grub and a few beers.Tanya annie hels and rach arrived then.great pre gig atmosphere.next in were al and lynn,who knew from the night before we needed to be at the venue by 8.30 so off we went.got there with about 5 mins to spare.got our seat.3rd row,me and tik right behind tan and rach.waving all over the place as we spotted loonies dotted all over! from the moment the boys walked on stage..99.9% of the audience were on their feet for the whole night..you just cant sit at a ub40 gig!
First set..awesome..the pics and the vids dont even begin to do justice to being there..feeling every note..shivers down your spine.Robin was being bossy again..telling security that we can take pics.videos and dance as much as we like.thanks RBC! These songs are so relevant today..class!
The moment i was waiting for was Adella..so i had my phone ready and dialled Fi's number..it connected in about 1 second lol..rang chelle for a couple and soul& jaye too.they all seemed rather pleased
time for the break so me and rach ran to the loo's..met carolanne,told her someone hadnt shown up in the 2 seats next to us..she didnt hesistate..off she went and grabbed tom over beside us.tan rang from the bar..drinks..lovely.met jamie t warwick and astros's very tall son outside..they kept us talking and we made it back inside just in time for part 2.
We were treated to some more wonderful songs..new and OLD! wow.
the whole place was rocking..i loved every second.thank you UB40.
Theres a reason why you have been a constant in my life and everytime i go to a gig i am reminded why..you've just got IT!
Met loads of loonies in our usual spot after the gig..front of stage..managed to get Astros drumstick and a set list..didn't know one of the tunes though..reggIe music
Afterwards we were lucky to spend a few minutes with them..didnt want to stay too long but sat and had a chat with Ian Campbell..lovely lovely man.
Lesley..what can i say..you and BT are so well suited..such nice people..i know you might read this so Hiiiiiiiii lol
BT...you have to teach us your system
Thanks to you all for allowing us into your world and for taking the time to chat and have pics taken..love you!
Tik had left to find a bar..and boy did he do well.me,rach tom and carolanne followed him to the 80's bar..REFLEX
D.J asked if anyone had been to symphony hall.. YES!!!
3 choons..we were on our feet again. He played a special song for Tom..rain or shine....hehehe
I had so much fun with some very special people..about 2am we got rach a TAXI!!!!!!!
the rest of us head off for a kebab..yum.climbed into bed at about 3.15 am...happy!

Anyone going to these gigs...it goes without saying...enjoy.
Roll on Dublin...

Great read Shaz...felt like I was there again for a minute! Fabulous night
I must apologise for confusing someone with my change of hair colour

Wish I could do more gigs but... they all seem to be on school night...

Thank you UB40.... the way you all are with your fans is the reason why we all love and support you
