Pershore St multistorey isn't too far away and is open 24 hours, its a City Council car park and looks like £3.50 for up to 24 hours or £3 after 6 for the evening. It is £8 up to 6 hours at the Bull Ring. :shock: That's a bargain compared to how much we had to pay to leave the car park in Manchester near the MEN, it was over £20!

The venue is located in Digbeth, a part of Birmingham. A stone throw from the town centre. You can park in any side roads off Digbeth Coach Station, literally opposite the venue and behind the main road. That way it costs nothing to park.

This may be too late to help as I had to wait to accepted by the administrators. Off to the gig in one-hour, can't wait... :shock:

A kind person gave us a ticket to park until midnight. We found the place just in time to see Lisa Hannigan. She was very good. Just waiting for Richard & the band.

Well that was absolutely fantastic. Such a great venue and the sound was spot on. Really warm audience reception. The music was pretty good too. :D

One of the best gigs ever and I got a special Hawleytastic bottle of Hendos.

Fantastic night last night - One of the best Hawley concerts I have been to. There seemed to be so much love in the room for Richard and the band and Richard was also on fine form with the banter. Took a couple of Hawley virgins with us, who loved it too and said one of the best concerts they have ever been to. Particular highlights for me were Skys Edge, Soldier On, Open up Your Door (which caused one of the Hawley virgins to cry (in a good way)) and of course the Ocean which by the time this was played I was practically bursting in anticipation of it (I always panic that it might not be played and so when it comes on I practically faint with delight!!)

Just brilliant - thank you Richard for a great night!

I am off now to see what other tickets might be available for remaining gigs!! <*>

Can anyone give me a setlist? I took my daughter to Bath. We'd not seen him before. Bass was a little too prominent but he was great and the Lisa Hannigan support was good too. Both came over as great musicians/performers and gracious with it.
Now i'm after setting up a spotify playlist of the show

See my response on your duplicate post.

This is the Birmingham set list - presumably it is the same each night???

I'm sure 'She Brings the Sunlight' was played, last track before the encore.

I thoroughly enjoyed the gig last night. A good mix of new and old tracks. I would have liked to hear 'There's a Storm A-coming' but as Richard said, we would be there all week if he played all his songs.

One regret, I couldn't decide what to buy from the merchandise stall, and on the way out it was too busy, an excuse to go to another gig. :idea: I see Palf has the Forum fridge magnet I gave him at the Crucible in Sheffield, it was taped to something on the stand.

I have a copy of the the set list below and it is the same so I don't believe she brings the sunlight was played - Though happy to be corrected as perfectly possible that I had gone in to a trance and some how missed it!!

Surely it was played (why wouldn't it have been?). I'm sure I heard it or perhaps that was in the car on the way home. I think I am still in a trance like state induced by Remorse Code.

Wasn't on the set list for tonight and a few tweets mention the song has been missing from recent gigs.
