And once you've done Heathrow, can you come to Oxford? It's a lot prettier! :D

Come on, it's got to be London again :D We've got such a good history with Leonard, and there's plenty of places with a roof!

Sheffield is just up the road from me.

Birmingham is just down the road from me. The Symphony Hall would be ideal.

But of course, he can always return to Matlock :)

Birmingham LG Arena (former NEC) would be ideal for me as I can walk there from the office but in the interests of fairness I am all for a show at Newcastle Arena and another at Sheffield Arena.

With the UK not on the original schedule for this tour - anywhere in England would be fantastic, pretty please!

I feel sure there must be at least 1 UK date!
Keeping everything crossed afterall, (except maybe my eyes haha)

The biggest 'predicament' as it were, is ofcourse, coping with the anticipation and living in constant hope when waiting to see if a UK date will even be announced - compared to this... all other concerns or problems suddenly seem to pale into insignificance :)

Like..
Getting my partner to have time off of work (that's one all on it's own mind you!) - to take care of the kids, with me making sure I have set EVERYTHING up for him while I go to a gig...
Or worrying about how to get to somewhere else in the UK that is far away from my little patch here...
Or trying to weigh up the cost if an overnight stay is easier depending on location etc...
Or what mode of transport to use to get there, and the malarky of sorting out all the relevant tickets etc etc...
Or packing a bag if I need to because I ALWAYS forget something! (- though have finally gotten out of the habit of forgetting my mobile charger)

In reality it is no longer a problem if the gig is 400 miles away from me! Though if a UK date is announced it will be like winning a golden ticket because I am sure it will sell out in no time!

I am quite a capable sort of person usually anyway, but it is nice to somehow get reminders of that at times.
So if nothing else - even if NO UK date happens- the bright side (for there always is atleast one) is that all the normal mucking around and organising of myself etc etc that I would have to do, to be able to do something like this - has just been proven to be, in reality, a total piece of cake!
And I am kinda grateful for that reality check :D

(I might still resort to crossing even my eyes though :lol: )

London or Birmingham would be great. Don't mind really, just want him to come here.
