That's great Sarah, although I'm not sure I'll persuade my mum to go to every tour. I'm working on it tho!

Ahhhh... this takes me back 26/27 years, to when my Mum used to 'escort' me to gigs. She had a bit of a crush on Robin, so it wasn't really a chore to have to chaperone her 14/15 year old daughter to shows. In fact I used to have to drag her away from the after shows, where Dad would be waiting patiently outside for us to appear!! One time, October 1983, at Bristol Colston Hall, Dad suddenly appeared backstage, trying to remind us we had a home to go to... Parents... don't you just love 'em.

Well done Elise's mum. I am sure you will want to go back for more

Great story Tanya!
And what is it about Robin that women of all ages have crushes on him?!
