WHICH CONCERT WILL YOU BE GOING TO? - Sun, 19 Mar 2006 05:06:00

Now we have a list of dates for John's latest concert tour, which concert will you be attending? smile

I shall be going to the Scala in London. Perhaps before the concert begins we could have a get together in the Sahara Nights pub similar to the last time John played there?

I read thread about Ion-ah having a sickie and doing the complete tour, however much I'd love to do everynight, I don't think my wife will be too keen. <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />

Amsterdam - Paradiso 65.

The only chance for me to see John & Louis live...

Rob, is it true the gig will happen?
I looked at the concert list of the Paradiso yesterday but it was not listed in...

I want to order my ticket 'cause I start for a holiday week today...

I'll be attending the Liverpool gig for sure!

I saw John at the Liverpool Royal Court in '83 and at the Liverpool Barfly in '03 but alas missed his support slot with the Human League due to other commitments.So I damned well won't be missing this !! Andy

Rob, many thanks for your information. I E -mailed the Paradiso 65 this morning but can read the answer first on Friday evening - ''cause I start for a week at the eastern coast in the next moment.

I wished I could stay with you all together at the Scala!!, but for the explained reason on "Foxx Tour " I can only go to Amsterdam show.

At least, it would be the first show - so if any informations wanted about that gig - I could post it here...
I'm glad John & Louis play in Amsterdam - otherwise I would be the "LUCKY LOOSER".
wink

Bye - see you all here Friday

Cardiff/Caerdydd...capital city of Wales...home of the new, improved Dr Who!

I'd better set the timer now so that my re-animation is completed in a timely fashion.

I want to chill...but I need to thaw first....

PS: Any news on the proposed set, yet? I ask because a couple of Daleks that live about three doors up are keen on hearing She Robot live. Fithy beggars.....

I will be going to the Nottingham gig. I can't wait!! I went to see him in Nottingham on the last tour at the Rescue Rooms & had a great time.. I also went to Fibbers in York which I might do again on this tour?

Re: WHICH CONCERT WILL YOU BE GOING TO? - Sun, 19 Mar 2006 19:47:00

Assuming I'm not still in some far flung corner of the globe scratching out a living I'll be attending the Scala Concert this year.

Last time I had my ticket and then ended up working in India instead. banghead

Might also venture farther afield, again depending on work commitments.

Re: WHICH CONCERT WILL YOU BE GOING TO? - Mon, 20 Mar 2006 05:45:00

Well John is from Chorley, but they're not playing there either...

...so at least there is equality in non-home-ground stampage...

I'm still jazzed about Cardiff!

If I lean out of my window I can just about see the venue...

....and my neighbours...

....doing....

....something....

Whoops.

I'm torn between Scala and Notts. It would be great to meet up a Sahara Nights again, and bump into Metalbeat once more, but it's a shame ol' Brummie Rich can't make it, as it would be nice to catch up, so not sure if a Friday night in Notts isn't preferable. Might do both!

I'm going to try and get to the London gig. I'm going to avoid Wolverhampton as I lived there for 12 years and still haven't worked out why. This will be the first time I've seen John since the Tin Can Club in Digbeth, Brum in 1984! My how I've changed since my then 16 year old self...

The myspace blog says that there's a chance of a Toronto show in the fall. That's a five hour drive from Ottawa, but I'm already working on convincing my wife that we need to make the trip (she doesn't mind his music but doesn't have any particular interest in it, either). An old friend of hers lives in Toronto and her hometown is London (Ontario), which is just another two hours down the 401, so we'll probably combine a few things in one trip. Boy, I hope this comes together...

Oooh, thank you!!! excited I will definitely keep an eye out for more information as time goes on. It's a 2 1/2 hour flight for me, but with cheap airlines, it shouldn't be too bad. smile Yay!! I hope this comes together as well!!! excited

A pre show drink at the Saraha nights would be nice. It would be nice to see you all again especially Gloria. We'll arrange time nearer the grand occasion?

Only 4 months to wait. frown

Hey Gloria, do you think it'll work for old men too? - my back's been giving me a bit of jip of late. Perhaps I should re-register as "Not so Young Savage"? laugh Sadly though, Sahara Nights appears to be no more. When I passed by on the bus to work this morning, it was closed and all the signs have been removed. Between now and July I'll do a little reconnaisance and try and find another venue to suggest for pre-Scala meet.

Cheers!

True, there is always the bar at the Scala. <img border="0" alt="[Suave]" title="" src="graemlins/suave.gif" /> But it was nice last time, at least I thought so, to meet and get acquainted in a different environment. There are a few pubs and bars nearby, so I'll suggest something nearer the time for those that are interested. smile

It works, it works! My teacher, by the way, is a man. Some women feel shy at belly dancing with a male teacher, but it's just like at the doctor's!

Looking forward to reading your report on the Amsterdam show.

Re: WHICH CONCERT WILL YOU BE GOING TO? - Thu, 27 Apr 2006 22:38:00

Thank you both for the wishes.
Oh yes - it was very stressful 'cause I haven't known for a long time what was going on. It was a strange feeling all the UK fans had ordered their tickets as the Amsterdam show was not incl. in the list of the club.

BUT AT LEAST IT WORKED OUT FINE FOR ME!! excited

And it would be a pleasure for me to give a report of John's first show of this tour , incl the set list - if you want to know it. Perhaps there are one or two who won't know this before their own concert?

I also hope I can make some good photo shots. It will be send to Rob then for the Metamatic site - like all the other stuff I sent him.

WOW - I'm totally happy I got my tickets. laugh

I know we don't want to post them here and spoil the surprise, but it would be useful if anyone attending these gigs kept a note of the setlist on the night.

I for one don't want to know cos I'm not going till the last night, but its hard to get this kind of info later and we'll kick ourselves if it aint recorded somewhere. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Will be at brighton, and scala. Also may try to get to the limelights one if i know more on the travel side of it.

Making a list of the setlist is one thing, but as Peter said there will probably be other ways to remember the shows too.
