I am so excited - this will be the first time seeing Leonard and have been a lifelong fan.

Sadly due to an unremitting school run and subsequent abandonning kids and husband to hit the M4 I won't make the meet up.

Anyone know what the parking is like in the area? :?

For what it's worth I am heading to McDaids on Sunday Afternoon. Great little pub and then head up to RKH for 5:30 so as not to miss any part.. Is Damian Rice the only other act to play. I hear leonards set is a good 2 1/2 hours. Now that value for money.

As far as I can tell damien Rice is the only support. Damien is amazing and for anyone who doesnt know his stuff you are in for a treat. What a buzz for him for him to be supporting such a legend and musicians musician. I dont know any musician who would have turned down that support.

But bless, how hard will it be to get the crowd excited before the great man comes on :) I think we have all been in a mood of advanced excitement bout that for many months :lol: :lol:

Thanks, Marcie! I enjoyed the water immensely :D .

Speaking of water, some amazing person managed to kit us out with bin bags in the pub before the concert on Sunday. Who was that, does anybody know? But I enjoyed the water that fell from the sky, too.

A wave to the people who read here daily but do not write (lazy gits!). Hello Helen. Hello Joe.

Well, I guess you are all recovering in darkened rooms. Thanks for the memories!

See you later in the year, Christine.

Too many years as a sound engineer :) I'm only 21 you know :lol:
Was great to meet you too. What about the seat sean had... thought I had a good one in the middle about 10 rows back, but when I stretched my legs at the break there he was in the front row.
Well done sean you couldnt have done better :)

Thanks to John, alias "Grecian man" who managed to get half a dozen heavy duty bin bags from one of the barmen at the Brazen Head. I managed to escape the worst of the rain :)

It was great to meet all of you and sorry to have missed those I didn't get to meet. A brilliant weekend. Grateful thanks to Damellon for all the arrangements, the hospitality of herself and her family, and to Leonard of course :D
