Man were great that year.  Middle aged men in grey suits playing outstanding psychedelic rock.  What's not to like?


Just goes to show - I think they are the worst band I have ever see anywhere.

But I am aware others love them, but what do I know I love the Divine Comedy   Shocked

Someone mentioned Deacon Blue. I really like them, I think they'd make good headliners.


Didn't Gareth W work with them? So they've got an intro already. That they haven't featured suggests that they're too costly, I imagine. Or just aren't interested....

Has the Fairport/Merry Hell/IOTA gig at the Fleur de Lys in East Hagbourne nr Didcot been mentioned anywhere?  Can't see it if it has. 9 June 2019.... £27.50

I was in there for lunch on Friday.  Nice place.  Going to be very intimate!

Just spotted on Setlist FM that Fairport played 'You Never Wanted Me', the old Jackson C Frank number in their Belgium gig on October 23rd.  Can this be right?  Must be fifty years since they last played it.  Almost as weird as RT digging up 'Tale in Hard Time' on his current tour.

It's on the BBC boxset and the expanded Heyday CD.

Other than that its the same list as their UK mini tour in October - maybe they had a special request?

Dude, that's perfectly understandable. I've had too many instances lately of buying stuff I've already got because I've forgotten I've even bought it, let alone being aware of the bonus tracks on them. Long gone are the days when I knew what songs were on an album, in the correct order and what the catalogue number was.
