Try to buy your merchandise from the Actual Shop that is down the road to the R.O.H (we found that straight away lol..). I'm not sure how much all of the merchandise cost but, the programme was £5 in there and when we went into the R.O.H itself they were £7.

Now to the concert! It was a nice clean place and I enjoyed it but not as much as Nottingham's Super Tour. Where we were many sat down as we all had walking sticks. I was very glad to sit down lol... My Mum hated every minute of it the concert. Mum said it was way too loud. Neil sadly sounded like helium in parts. Mum took her hearing aid out and replaced swiftly with cotton wall. lol... Someone on our bench left and didn't come back and another two behind did the same. So, I don't really know what happened. :?

I think this will be our last concert as travel is getting too much for us now etc.. I am lucky I have seen them a couple of times. :D

Although the set list differed only slightly from 2016 (no winner - :D ) I loved it. The setting in that place is just special - you almost feel part of a club. I met jsdouvres - very nice chap and we got along swimmingly. Nice to meet you fella.
The concert itself I think is great - the lasers are second to none and they have redone versions of songs (although they are the same as 2016). The sound was crisp and clear and Neil was on good form. Loved Chris’ little hop/skip offstage at the end. Personally, I’d have liked a little more difference from 2016 - a couple of alternate versions or a couple of new songs even. However, I’m nitpicking.
Oh - a much improved lithograph too this time around! :up:

Isn't it supposed to arrive by Christmas?
Have a look at my taste in music:
http://www.last.fm/user/NikacPokac

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant
