Default One Tarts Review - Dublin Part 1/27th March

Well where to start, couldn't wait to see my gorgeous fellow tart Gerrio for the first time for a Touring 2.5 years. Due to various reasons i.e., life getting in way, plans were finally coming to fruition.

Met at Dublin Airport, onto hotel to meet Tanya (WildCat) then off for a ladies boozy lunch lovely. Niall arrived post lunch, sorry hun we must have been a headache for you, not knowing what was occurring

Arrived at the Academy very giddy and for me a bit apprehensive as losing Ali was a blow but Astro too just couldn't see how the boys would be able to pull this off. How WRONG I was, thought this was end for me

At the front of barrier, where else would we will be? Excitement really started to kick in. Then finally the familiar sounds of the Fantastic Ub40 filled the venue and the usual hairs stood to attention loved it. But to add to the excitement I turned around to see Sharon stood there appearing from no- were, clearly the pull of the boys her home town clearly too much for her and Tik.

The usual front row drama's pushing, shoving, drinks spilled over my lovely red shoes, Niall protecting us ladies, a true gent.

Bonus a few drinks at the hotel where the band were staying, needless to say we spent the next day totally wiped out and certainly asking ourselves are we getting too old for this touring malarkey?......NO CHANCE.

The set list was amazing, a mixture of old and new, the oldies, my personal favourites and I have to give credit to Duncan, he nailed them, 'don't let it pass you by', 'Love is always al'right' to name just a few, as a fan I left that concert elated and re-generated. Sorry for any doubt

The Boys you are still the Original UB40 and we love you And for any of you that are in doubt in any way, please just go along to a concert near you and see for yourself because I am so delighted I did.

Just a couple of gorgeous ladies missing....you know who you are xxxx

Part 2 to follow
