Hi All
I was just sitting here viewing the EV life-stylee and I thought I would just say a huge thanks to everyone here as with you this project was so much better than I could have ever hoped or expected, I remember a point on-stage at Hammersmith Odeon and I thought to myself 'life doesn't get much better thasn this'.
So thank you you were fantastic.

Thanks Chris! And thank you for your lovely email, your positive feedback means so much. lurve

The band, the four of you together again, were amazing... We could never have dreamed that this would happen and the magic was still there alright - you completely blew us away. Let's do it again soon, eh? wink

Much love,
Cerise.

Dearest Chris:
Similar to your sentiments about your feelings during the Hammersmith gig, I too felt- while experiencing the band's performance - that 'life doesn't get any better than this.'

THANK YOU for 'finding your way back' to the band, so to speak, and agreeing to participate in the tour. I flew from the US for three of your concerts. Unfortunately I was not able to personally meet any of you, but just seeing and hearing you play live on stage was a 30 year dream come true.

Take care of yourself.

Most Sincerely -

Volglory

Thank you Chris,

April 2009 turned out to be one of the more busy months in my life! Going back and forth between Norway and UK 3 times in one month, being at the shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Brighton, Hammersmith and then rounding off at the London Roundhouse. I was a bit young first time around, but managed to see you in Oslo during the final U-Vox tour 1986, where I was actually the guy you ran into at the McDonalds in Oslo before the show…  My next stop is unfortunately not until the Festival in Belgium – I just don’t want to miss anything….
All the best, and please never stop ;-)

I can only echo what others have already said.

Without Chris Cross there is no Ultravox, you are 25% of something Monumental!!

This April has meant more to me, personally, than I could have ever dreamed of, and my smile is still as wide as it was when I heard the first metallic 'ding' of Astradyne at Edinburgh.

Thank You a million times over, and can't wait 'till Belgium in August to re-live the experience.

Well, let me put it this way:

Met my old hero Sir Roger Moore last week at a book signing - he's The Saint, so that was cool cool
but NOTHING in comparison to seeing Chris Cross and comrades return to the stage in Edinburgh Playhouse - now that was really SOMETHING! We'll talk about it for years on this forum.

Dear Chris,
Thank YOU!! Thank you, and Midge, Billy & Warren from the bottom of my heart! I travelled from the US to attend this reunion tour! I wouldn't have missed it for the world, and it was everything I could have hoped it would be. You were fantastic!! You have given your fans an amazing gift, and we are so grateful.

Thank you so much!
Lynne

PS - please bring the tour to the US - we love you here!

Chris, thanks to you and the rest of the band for making a dream come true. I would travel almost anywhere to see you guys, and i made the crossing all the way from New York. Would do so in a heartbeat again! Hammersmith was pure magic for me, and only seeing you live in New York at Avery Fisher Hall(missed you back in 80) would top it! Thanks again!

Buenos días Chris!

The pleasure was all ours!!! What you guys made us feel is absolutely beyond verbal description!

And yes - it can get even better, let's not always limit ourselves in our heads! YOU COME BACK SOON PLEASE and show us - and we give it back to you like we did and more, promise! Let's practice the ENERGY EXCHANGE again and again and... yes, why not: again!.

Anything else I had to say to you, I already posted in another thread in your section.

One important request: no more seated gigs please... They are a pleasure limiter! Let us dance with you guys!! No more people sitting on their ellbows throughout half the gigs!! PLEASE!! wink

For your upcoming gig in Barcelona (sunny even in Winter), I can of course organize whatever necessary.

Kisses,

Isabel laugh

Hi Chris,
Great to see you on stage again. The smiles you exchanged with Midge when you had both strapped on your guitars was great to see. It was evident you were happy to be back.
Thanks also for taking time to talk to my wife and I at the after show party in Bournemouth. You were a gentleman and it was a pleasure to finally meet you.
The print you signed is now framed and hanging pride of place in my home.
Thanks again, I havn't stopped smiling since the gig excited

Thanks for popping into the forum Chris and for your kind words.

Wherever and whenever anyone saw you on the tour - whether it be one show they were able to attend, or many - it was a dream come true to see you four guys playing together on stage again, and as so many have said, our heartfelt thanks go to you, Warren, Billy and Midge for having the courage to talk and 'get up there' to play after so long away. The shows were excellent, and we wouldn't have missed any of it for the world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

smile

Regards,


Paul

Can I just add a very big thank you to you & the rest of the guys too for giving me two extremely memorable Friday nights in a row.

Can I add one thing, a piece of advice kind of thing - take your bloody hand out of your pocket!!! biglaugh I have a habit of "playing with my keys" but it's amazing how wrongly an innocent piece of recreation can be seriously misinterpreted!!! nutjob HYAK! HYAK! HYAK! HYAK! wink

Chris, thank-you all so much for this April. It was a piece of my adolescence rescued, refurbished and lived the way it's meant to be! It was beyond dreaming.

To follow things, albeit intermittently, from the nerves of Edinburgh to the face-splitting grins of the London gigs was a true pleasure and a privilege, one which I never thought I'd see. I hope you folks had as much of a rush doing it as we did watching it and that your return to "other lives" is not as much of a trial as it has been for many of us!

And, you know, the suggestion of Barca in the Autumn . . . there are worse places to gig at that time of year!

Chris...I went to Hammersmith and a few other gigs (much to the amusement of my kids...they think I'm an Ultravox stalker!!!) Can I just say that it was visible to all how much you enjoyed that particular show, you said at one point you thought "life doesn't get much better than this.."
I was standing quite close to the stage and I thought exactly the same wink As a 15 year old I went to Hammersmith and saw the band on the Set Movements tour, all the enthusiasm and euphoria I felt then came flooding back...thanks for making this particular 40 year old very happy!! excited Joanna

Chris, Seeing you all back on stage after so long was a dream come true. I missed the experience of an Ultravox show during the 80's and after 30 years of enjoying your music it was a thrill to finally get there. I have seen many of my heroes play, but until Birmingham my greatest wish remained unfulfilled.
Thank you for coming back and I hope that you will be coming back again soon.

All the very best

And I was sitting in the second row at Hammersmith (! never can get those kind of seats in NY ever!) and thought to myself how lucky can one get.....Ultravox back together in my lifetime!
Thank you (and the rest of the group) for making this New York fan ecstatically happy. I still cannot believe I actually heard Ultravox perform right there in front of me.
