I sincerely hope everyone attending these shows have an amazing time. One branch of my family is from Sligo and I had the pleasure of visiting there 3 years ago. These are two shows I really wish I could have attended.

I don't like the look of that sky - hope it's better tomorrow when I fly out to Ireland for the Sunday gig.
Sturgess 66, thanks for keeping us posted - when do you sleep?

Arlene, where are you? I'm sure we'll catch up in Gothenburg.

Liam - I think it is supposed to be good weather tomorrow - clear skies. Who knows though - weather being weather. :D Not sure - but it looks like it was not bad there for tonight's concert (after raining during the day). And - it's just late afternoon here now. I'll sleep tonight. :lol: Have a great time tomorrow!

I am still in sunny, warm and dry southern California packing up to depart for the Krakow Event. And then on to Gothenburg, Berlin and Ghent. Have a great time at the concert on Sunday and post your concert report ASAP. We are all anxiously waiting to hear every little detail.

Sturgess, you do the weather forecast also, what can I say! Of course I'm going to enjoy the show. I intend to play live in London all the way to the airport! Sorry I'm not in to tweeting, but if I have time, I will post a report. Keep up the good work ;-)

Liam - you would be amazed what I just accomplished in the past 3 hours - multi-tasking - menial tasks! Impressive. Haha :lol: :lol:

And yeah - in the middle of that - I hoped that Leonard and the UHTC wouldn't be soaked by a rain storm - that the show could go on - so I did look up the weather. Inquiring minds - and the wonders of my computer - and the worldwide web ...

Looking forward to your report.
