Hello you all!

So the Hammy O gig is closer than ever. Sorry that I've been so silent so far, but you know that man's gotta do what man's gotta do...

In my case that means that I've been seriously making some euros, pounds, crowns, rubles, latis what ever currency that get's me too see ULTRAVOX. And ,please, my friends, let's not forget, that as we are arriving all the way from FINLAND, we are also going enjoy Premier Football ie. Cottagers vs. Potters. woohoo


You won't mind me emphasizing our long travel from FINLAND. So if there, by any change, would be anyone else interested in ULTRAVOX & FOOTBALL

(Craven, where are you....? Still going there? Do you know any suitable pub on the way to stadium? If you are not too busy, of course...)

we would be delighted if you would join us.

Our hotel is Premier Inn Hammersmith and I think there will be lot of other Ultravox nuts. I hope to see you around: Voxgate, hotel, stadium, pubs, and everywhere.

mexican

See you very soon!

Mika & Marko, Antti, Pete and the beautiful one

Buenos días (hyvää huomenta) Mika!

It will be good to finally meet you. Met your cousin Peppe back in Helsinki on 6th August 2005 and would have loved to see him again. Hope he is fine.

Sadly, I don't understand much football but I am sure we can talk about British CIDER and the sort at the pre-gig pub session. KAKSI OLUTTA!!! Otatko vielä tilkan viiniä? laugh

lmao

Sometimes, I am standing there watching the band (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol), imagining Ari next to me with that big grin on his face and dancing along. I have been laughing (and dancing whenever possible) SO MUCH on this tour but I know we would have laughed even more so with beautiful soul & free spirit ARI physically around.

Also, it's great to see that there are so many crazy adults around. Let the grey and bitter faces stay where they are!!!! Let's have fun while we can!! Tomorrow everything can be over. And I don't want to regret no having done things.

Et voilà! HAMMERSMITH ON FRIDAY, LAST GIG FOR ME!!! woohoo After that starts a new phase in all our lives. That counts for the band as well. Life won't be the same for them as before 7 weeks ago. You bet.

Hasta pronto, finlandeses!!! May you drink the Scots under the table as usual, buahahahahaaa!!!!

Hello mate. A good pub which you can walk to from the apollo is called the Crabtree. What you need to do is walk along the river from hammersmith - theres a pathway along the Thames and you will see the pub after a 10min walk. If its a nice day you can sit outside.
Both home and away fans will freely mix there with no trouble and its a 5 minute walk (again long the same pathway) to the ground.
Start from the Appollo, and ask anyone wearing Fulham stuff (shirt or top) and you will get directions.

I would love to meet you but unfortunately I travel from the other side of the ground and drink at a pub in West Brompton which, although is right next to a tube stop, isnt easy to get to from Hammersmith. If I see you at the gig, I will give you further directions - but if you find the river (directly behind the Apollo) just follow it.
