To be fair, Glenn's original link was to an NPR article. NPR and Fox couldn't be more different.

Re: Why is Neil fascinated by Tony Blair?

Did Neil know Tony Blair before he became PM? I suspect they might have been somewhat acquainted in London's mid-90s cocktail circuit.

The protests are ongoing, just on a smaller scale and not reported internationally.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

It really bugs me that so many are saying that masks are ineffective - purely on the basis that virus particles are so small - when research has shown they increase protection five-fold (because particles travel in large water droplets). I just read in Hong Kong just about everyone has been wearing...

Re: Tom Watkins dead

The rumour I heard back in the day was that Tom was the source of the stories about Chris's health in the Sunday tabloids in the early 90s. So yeah.

Re: Asia tour merch

At the HK show last night, the only merch I could see were the Super T-shirts and Stupidity shirts and caps. There was a really long line for merchandise so I'm not surprised stuff sold out. I didn't see any tour programmes or the Agenda sweatshirt that's on the website. I saw a guy on the train hom...

Re: The Super Tour

I'm happy to report Hong Kong was fabulous last night. I'm so glad to have seen the Super tour at long-last! The audience were on their feet for the whole show, which doesn't always happen in this part of the world. In fact, when the show began the Asia World Expo stewards were shouting at people to...

Re: The Super Tour

In today's South China Morning Post - Hong Kong's main English-language newspaper - there's an interview with Neil and an article about the Pets' intriguing relationship with HK. Their first-ever tour opened in HK in June 1989, just three weeks after the massacre in Tiananmen Square. The last time N...

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

De-lurking to add my agreement with the O.P. I'm thrilled about Agenda - it's fabulous to wake up to a new song and video every day. In the social media age, we all think our own opinions are oh-so very important, but we're not much interested in listening to what anyone else has to say. Every time ...

Re: Christmas card 2017

A fellow Pethead who works in data protection pointed out to me why I probably didn't get the e-card this year. Earlier in the year, do you remember all those data protection emails? My inbox was flooded with them for a week or two. Anyway, I most likely didn't respond to the email from Warners, the...

It's all seated in Hong Kong, and about £128 for the front zones.
The HK ticket prices are bonkers!

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

I am of course still waiting in Hong Kong. Good job I ordered early for Christmas! :roll: 5 weeks on and still waiting. Royal Mail to Hong Kong generally takes 7 days. It looks like it must have gone by surface mail. I would happily have paid a bit more for air mail - shame we weren't given this op...
