Not that freaky Helen - although it might be very useful to possess psychic powers - recognised you from your pic at the 'whisky gig' - and your response to Paul's offer clinched it! :*:

By the way, you've made his day - he hasn't been called a 'young' man for a long, long time, but he is lovely. Would be lovely to meet up again soon for a chat - will people think we're bonkers? :wink:

Fantastic!! Down In the Woods, we love it. Booked on Eurostar next Friday and tickets for AB in Brussels, may head for Cologne the next night as well. At the moment Richard and the lads live are absolutely the top. Thanks. :D

Rubbish review, don't you think? Can't stand The Standard. Sneering news for dullards from the Home Counties... x

This was my 5th concert (I think) of RH and again it was fantastic. I was also very lucky to see the band in Brighton. The difference could not be bigger: as much as they talked in Brixton, that quiet they were in Brighton. Unbelievable how many talked during the concert in Brixton! Loads of people around me. Yes, the sound was great because of the acoustic but that meant as well that any dickhead talking could be heard as well...
I just read the review in the London Standard. No idea now what the reviewer tries to say in his review (could be I am Dutch and again, lost in translation...). Maybe he felt RH was talking to him (after the first song when he told the audience in the back to shut up)...
Yes, there were a lot of f-words in RH in-between songs but maybe it was his frustation cos so many people were talking ( I presume he and his band could hear that on stage). I know I was really getting annoyed by the klote-talkers (there is some Dutch for ya all)...
But to end this reply....I loved the concert. Just beautiful.
Thanks, RH and band. See ya next week in Bruxelles.

Oh Cloggie .... Richard always peppers his humour with the F word! I take it as a term of endearment!! Even though I shouldn't, I am always amazed that a man with such earthy humour and speech writes such wonderful tender lyrics. We should never judge a book by its cover. 8)

I think that was one of the best of all of Richard's gigs I've been to ... a great mix of songs and I absolutely loved hearing the new stuff live. We were upstairs but I couldn't believe the level of the chatter drifting up from downstairs through both Lisa Hannigan's and Richard's sets, good on Richard for telling the buggers to shut the f.... up. Didn't spoil the evening though!!

Me too, but the world seems to be full of talkers these days - no-one listens anymore

Agreed but why buy a ticket and still not listen :eh? Why not just stay in and talk?

The talkers around us probably hadn't paid – they were on the guest list! Last time I swap seats to sit in the posh seats. Hope I'm not insulting your friends H but most of them were knobs. x

Probably record company / music media types - not like me to stereotype :nemo:

Yes Egg, I think Pops is right. One of them had an over-enthusiastic woman on each arm – strange, as his attractive qualities were absolutely lost on me and my three discerning female companions. Maybe rather than simply being a huge knob, he just had a...x
