    Oh and don’t get me started on BOOKING FEES. I get there needs to be one, but how are they allowed to charge me the same price to “Print at
    home” as Sending via post.

    I have a couple of friends who may be interested. How many do you have and how much?

    Two, and face value- it’s the top price so £150 plus fees- maybe £160-£170 each...

    Just checked and turns out he's sorted, but I'll let you know if I hear of anyone else who's looking.

    Thanks- I’m hoping it isn’t a ball ache to offload them...

    Except that would actually a valid point if you hadn’t just tried.

    And could spell plagiarise... :)

    So the European dates have BRIGHT LIGHT BRIGHT LIGHT as the support act. Who do we get in the UK?

    PAUL BLOODY YOUNG :DAF:

    I mean yes, much bigger name in the scheme of things, but REALLY?

    I could really be doing with the money I paid for these tickets right about now but this feels like a once in a gay life opportunity.

    Paul Young? :manson:

    We had Pam Ann when I saw the Farewell Tour in 2004. Much more appropriate for the audience.

    Me and OLD ELLEN are fuming. She texted me to say:

    “PAUL FUCKING YOUNG? I haven’t paid HUNDREDS of pounds for PAUL FUCKING YOUNG. America had Chic. I’m boycotting. Well, I won’t, but I’m not buying any merchandise”

    And then 30 seconds later:

    “Unless they have wigs”

    :D

    There have been some suggestions of miming but honestly, all the greats do it! JANFT for God’s sake!

    BRAVO CHER (not that I’m really a fan but bravo Cher anyway. I mean she’s apparently been on the verge of death for the last twenty years so it’s a miracle she can even walk) :disco:

    Also I bet she’s not stealing money from fans UNLIKE SOME!

    I'm sure there is some miming and vocal help but I also think she does a fair bit of her live shows...live?

    It's probably just from miming the Believe verses and other moments where a woman in her 70s might need to catch her breath a bit. Well, that sort can stomp right out and leave more arm room for losing shit purposes for everyone else.

    There was some obvious miming- on Believe it was very much the case and her microphone wasn’t near her mouth most of the time- but clearly a lot of it was sung live. It was also brilliant- you just can’t deny a back catalogue like that!

    Waterloo, SOS and Fernando. All were good, but really I could have cut a couple to see some more classics- there was very little 60s/70s Cher. No Gypsies, Take Me Home, Half Breed, Dark Lady etc.

    Perhaps she should have just done an ABBA medley. Inevitable they would get at least that I guess, particularly with More Cher ABBA Gold on the way, but it's not like a much (if any) of the audience was there because of that album.

    I'd have demanded a REFUND if there was no GYPSIES

    Definitely the biggest disappointment but I'm splitting hairs. There was too much REALLY REALLY good stuff to care. The rock Cher era bit seemed to go down best with the audience- that and when she pulled out a really touching "I Got You Babe" and duetted with a video screened Sonny...

    It was a selection of used weaves from the last 40 years selling for the bargain price of $15,000 a pop.

    Madonna found taking notes.

    I’m stunned there’s no Gypsies.

    Other than that, I’m so excited to see this big ol gay show :disco:

    I thought run of the mill. I was told there was a WIG SHOP by OUR GOOD DOCTOR LECTER but I couldn't find it for love nor money...

    I heard she was 9.15 the other night @VoR

    So I wasn’t planning on going to the hydro until at least 830/845.
