Re: CONCERT REPORT: Weybridge, July 11

I don't think I have been made to feel unwelcome to the forum, though Row J on Tuesday is a different matter. One or two views expressed to seem a little stuffy though. You know, time moves on: why, I hear that Bob Dylan is planning to go electric soon! Cyril - I'm afraid you failed to understand m...

Photography during the concerts

When I went to see LC at Bournemouth last year, I was surprised to see people openly taking photographs. At Bob Dylan concerts you're frisked on the way in & I've seen the bouncers ejecting people for taking photographs. I see that my ticket for next Tuesday in L'pool has the standard thing about no...

Re: Meetup in Liverpool 14th.July

Daveeliver - you've omitted probably one of the best things in L'pool, that's the National Trust tour of the Lennon & McCartney houses - http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-the_beatles.htm I did the tour last year and it was excellent. Another visitor this year was Dylan, apparently he went on th...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Weybridge, July 11

By the end, everyone was standing, like a proper concert. Cyril, the fact that you think that standing makes it a proper concert is, I'm afraid, a personal matter of opinion. It was so enjoyable last year at the Bournemouth concert, certainly upstairs, when everyone remained seated for most of the ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Weybridge, July 11

which involved ending up in front of the stage for the second half: which was much better -- we could see every detail of Leonard's natty scarf, and now we really felt we were there, until the friendly security staff job's worths took an interest and started hassling everyone back, and soon we were...

Maybe so but I'm sure there will be plenty of others who do want to see her so I'd suggest you don't try to get to your seat while she's on!

This is is the Summer Tour of Europe thread. Don't think America is (yet) part of Europe!

Re: Ticket sales - Weybridge

I've just been on the ticketmaster website and they are offering a 2 for the price of 1 deal for Leonard's show at the weekend, which appears to confirm the rumours of poor ticket sales. So I see, seems to be only for the terrace seating. Depending on the weather tomorrow, I may wander round & see ...

As far as I know that's an American site, best to use our own Met office -

Re: Weybridge meet-up July 11

The only entrance I know of into MBW is at the roundabout on the left of the map, beside Avro Way; but why not phone MBW & ask? I think I was wrong, there is a way in from Brooklands Road (B374) - http://www2.mercedes-benz.co.uk/content/unitedkingdom/mpc/mpc_unitedkingdom_website/en/home_mpc/MBWorl...

Nope, happy to be going up to L'pool knowing it's going to be dry! But I would like to have seen Suzanne Vega I must admit.

Re: WEYBRIDGE MEET-UP 11 JULY

As my train passed by the site tonight I could see that the stage & seating was actually being set up (just in case anyone needs additional reassurance).
