Fans who attended this show
Nearly thirty years ago I was a student graduating in Nottingham at the Royal Concert Hall.
I´d just seen S&G at Wembley (1982)and bought Hearts and Bones (in 1983) from a record store near the venue.
Fast forward and tonight I´m back for the first time since (with our 11 yr old son) in Nottingham.
I was disappointed with the 2008 Liverpool UK show and venue --- as soon as we went in tonight we new that this would be a special show -- perhaps the last time we see PS in concert?
We are sat 2 rows back in a packed and buzzing magnificent Royal Concert Hall.
At 7.40pm the lights dimmed and from the shadows a slim, youthful figure walked calmly onto the stage -- he and the band were visibly emotionally touched by the 3 minute standing ovation that met them.
We then had 2hrs of the finest quality and performance that I have ever seen --- PS and the band were in magnificent form.
To cap it all I managed to shake his hand and say ´thank you´ --- if this is the last time we see him in the UK then what a memory.
