Prepare yourself for a fabulous evening Ladyblue, RH and the band are on top form!

Forgot to say 'Seek it' was doubly fantastic on Friday night and I feel very privileged to have attended the 'kick-off' gig for this tour - there was such a lovely atmosphere. Hope RH gets to see the great reviews the Forumers are giving him and the band. Palf was working hard after the show - inundated with T-shirt buyers!

See you at The Forum Ladyblue x

Oh yeah that was good!! "guitar porn" is absolutely the right phrase, Jan. Would be interesting to know how many guitar changes they clocked up between them. Gordon must be the hardest working tech in his price bracket. Still think he's Opik Lembit's better looking younger brother tho!

The new and old stuff blended beautifully and the sound was immense. Particularly loved Seek It and hearing Before live. So glad that for the majority of the songs that gorgeous voice was served straight up and unadulterated :wink:

Had a horrible journey up due to several accidents on the motorway so only had chance to park up and gobble down half a sandwich before scurrying in to take my seat then had to scoot off promptly after due to an early morning start for Manchester but the couple of hours in between were sublime.

Thanks guys - had forgotten how good it was to hear you live.

Bit late but thanks Richard and everyone concerned. Fantasic night, just getting better all the time, great to seePalf and all the merchandise people. If you haven't got a ticket for any of the shows hurry up and buy one or two you will not regret it.
Great to meet so many people and their partners from The Forum, all such good people, looking forward to seeing you all again soon.x

Thanks a lot for your permission. I've been able to download it all right by clicking the right button. I like the photograph by itself, but it's perfect for this use: a lot of plain black background on which the icons can be seen clearly. Besides, I've only got three icons in my desktop, so they don't spoil the photograph.

Just back from Pocklington [after a week away staying near to the city that is built on rock n roll] in order to drop a line to say what a great gig that was!

Spank I recognise that shirt from your setlist pic and reckon you were sat alongside missen Mrs Dog Little Dickie cpaws Maggie and Craig in The Bulls Head pre gig.

Roll on the next one :Hoorah

LD - Sandy [the dog] is fine[ish] after going off her legs whilst walking round Pocklington - we took her to the Vets the next day - and she was diagnosed with a bruised ankle - which was good as we thought her hip had gone and she would have to be put down - hence our quick departure from the scene once the lights went up - would have loved to have stayed around a bit - but maybe next time.

Jan - Apologies for the screaming 'more' down your shell like after Down in the Woods...

Now what's this about a broken leg?

Back from a few days in Barcelona and just wanted to add to all the previous comments........what a fantastic gig, probably the best RH gig I've been to, it was like having the band in your front room!

The new songs were top notch and although the likes of The Ocean have been excellent set closers, 2 or 3 of the new tracks could easily fill that slot.

Once again apologies for not saying hello :oops: , even at 50 I still find it difficult to say hello I'm Egg, for fear of.........Feck Off Weirdo! :?

Top gig, can't wait for Holmfirth. :Hoorah

It all went by in a blur - folks were saying have you seen 'egg' - but I didn't know what you looked like...

Next time if you see the above - go up to him and say 'Hey your The Dog' - the photo is about 50 year old tho'...

I didn't spot anybody dragging their knuckles in the Black Bull(?) so presumed the R*th*rh*m fan hadn't gone!
