We mist out on the 2017 tour due to work, so as soon as the word went out on the 2018 tour, I was in like a rat up a drain pipe for tickets.
The location was The Railway Hotel aka The Iron Road Evesham. gig date April 6th.
Phil and I thanks to Matt Holloway letting us finish early, turned up just as the sound check was in progress. I had a drink while Phil bought some merchandise.
I managed to have a chat with Rhino and offered my services to warm up the ordinance as there was no opening band. I had brought Moxey's bass. Well I tried, I wished I'd brought my guitar aswell.
Rhino came on stage an gave me a few pointers.
Turned to the audience.......
