Sure this will have been posted before, however, just thought I'd do it as I'm new to the board. First date on the comeback tour, probably the best gig of my life and I doubt that will ever change. Always regret missing out on the 1979 Newcastle Mayfair gig and didn't expect to ever get another chance to see them. Was surprised too just how well they did play the songs. Sang along to every line and was well worth the sore throat next day.

Anyway, that's that said, enjoy people.

In hindsight the most Special of the reunion gigs I've been to.

The roof nearly blew off with the roar that went up when the curtain went up for Do The Dog. Like Stewart I think I got some dust in my eye as well.


Crying or Very sad

Crying or Very sad Very Happy Very Happy

I loved it. I met the band in the hotel the following morning, and I was still slightly pissed. Laughing
