    Lisa mugging the camera was such a highlight!

    Clare was thin. Faye was goddess like. Lisa was as desperate as ever. H was dialled down as it goes.

    They really do provide continuity in my life.

    It was pretty much WALL to WALL BANGERS.

    Do we really not have a Saara Aalto TOPIC? She really is the pop star we deserve, all while pop is in the doldrums.

    Was there one for her album? It was certainly mentioned.

    It may be in the Finnish Eurovision thread.

    Also Blue were FAIRLY DECENT from what you'd expect of Blue. Certainly competent. Lee Ryan is a fascinating creature. I feel like he's spent a large chunk of his life not knowing what he's apologising for. They very much fell into the "you know more Blue songs then you think you do".

    I loved his speech on the power of positive thinking. He’s an unintentional pop icon.

    He did make a speech about something, which most people roundly mocked. But he does try.

    It was nice! Didn't see much more than the cathedral and the marina though.

    Sounds like your show was only marginally less SHAMBOLIC than mine :disco:

    I still can't put my finger on why it was so much better than the November show but it really WAS

    I didn't go to the last tour, but it was definitely better the 2012 gig I went to. They can't really compare to when I saw them back in 1999/2000.

    Outside gigs are always so much better then venues. One of my favourite ever gigs was Pet Shop Boys in Thetford Forest.

    Also, it was possibly shambolic, but I didn't really GIVE A SHIT!

    Yes! It was all a bit last minute.

    Saddened to have missed CANTERBURY PRIDE.

    There ISN'T anything more. Then you get in the car and drive on to Regency Cheltenham.

    Loving that this PROVINCIAL TOUR is serving as a 2018 version of an old AA guide to BRITISH CATHEDRAL and ROMAN WALL CITIES for GAYS.

    For the next tour, perhaps they can do it in conjunction with the National Trust.

    Steps should be donated to the National Trust and PRESERVED for POSTERITY. Don't let English Heritage get their nasty mitts on them or it will be all INTERPRETIVE BOARDS and SURLY GUIDES before you can BLINK.

    Outside gigs are definitely the ticket, though I wouldn't bother with anything in a stadium these days. It all felt quite Pride-esque (both in terms of crowd and atmosphere which did add to the fun. Plus they all seemed to be having a REALLY good time :D

    In all seriousness, hoping this means we are going to get a new album in 2020?

    Why bother? It's probably the same line up as Swindon Pride 2020.

    Claire said a month or so ago that the next album is pretty much finished, so looking promising.

    Alice Deejay is fair doing the rounds. She was the support act to Atomic Kitten at my local lights switch on. :disco:
