If you check the summer tour 2008 thread, you will all get to know Red Poppy. I wonder if he will be at Jurys tonight?
I wonder if Leonard is staying there hmmmmmm?
Is there an artist entrance at the O2 that is not guarded by security? Just wonderin' ?

So many questions..... so little time :)

Thinking of you all in Dublin.

I have great memories of last year's weekend there, the pre-concert party on the 15th June, meeting so many of you, and of course the concert itself and the rain!

Thanks a million Margaret. I remember meeting you at Deirdre's house and it was your birthday :D . I am in the fifth row tonight in front of stage. Cannot wait!

I will see you in Barcelona... that will be something special :)

Yes have a great time everyone! Last year's concerts in Dublin were the best, esp. the one in the rain. Thank you for being Irish, as Leonard said last year.

Hello everyone who came to the meetups. It is a pity that they are not more structured so that the fans could be together and not be faced with the chaos in Jurys and the Harbourmaster. When Leonard comes back next year maybe we could book some venue and travel by special coach to the venue. I propose that he play next year in the new Thomond Park stadium in Limerick and then we can have a real meetup. Greetings to Heike, Rainer and Karin from Germany and apologies for the video pictures being out of synch, I thought Monday night was much better than Sunday night but these things are subjective, For those going on Wednesday and Thursday enjoy yourselves and be sure to lift the roof as we tried to do last night.

We called in to the Harbourmaster on Monday but not very busy & no sign of any 'meet-up'. We then went back to Jurys as the previous evening but we didn't know who the Forum members were. Another time......

Hi there

I would be interested in meeting up in Belfast (& just to mention again, I still have a spare ticket for the 2nd row!) Don't know Belfast that well so can't suggest a meeting place. See you there hopefully

That's great thanks, looking forward to going to the Belfast concert as I have never experienced a Belfast audience before! & I'm sure the atmosphere will be fantastic.

Was in the Harbourmaster Wed night but no sign of a 'meet up' as such..saw a few likely looking candidates for LC gig, and wondered was there anyone in there from the forum?.. Then it got really packed with suits and stuff so we just headed down to the gig (in the lashing rain!) So just out of my own curiosity was anyone there from here?...we were there from bout half five I think..was quiet then for a while. Me -huge corner table at door -red hair and talking quite animatedly (just general excitement) and my friend with me small and blonde and necking bottles of Heineken :)
