Once again an excellent gig. This was the third I have seen this tour and I believed it to be the best.( It was also the hottest)

The venue is quite a rough looking pub but the atmosphere was great. The tour followers from Liverpool and Southampton were there taking their normal front stage positions. The guys from Liverpool have been to every English and Scottish gig!

Ian played his normal set but added Bastard and F*** it Up. The latter played in good humour, with Darren and Ian having a great laugh. I believe this to be the first playing of F*** it Up but Bastard has been included from Newcastle onwards.

Ian and the band once again let two people, at a time, into the dressing room for photographs and signatures. I went in and got the bands autographs on the pubs gig guide and also took a few shots of the Band with Ian, I just hope that they come out.

Roll on October!!!!!

Ian have a great Birthday.
