Just been to The Sage, Gateshead.


Quite a trip!


I would walk 500 miles to see RT...but I drove 730 miles (round trip) instead.

Worth every mile!

seeing him on Sunday in Oxford  Cheesy


We shall be there too!

Don't miss the support act , partly because you've paid to see them , but that might just be a Yorkshire thing , but mostly because Joan Shelley and Nathan Salsburg are terrific artists and fully worth your attention .Big queue at the end of their set for merchandise , so it can't just be me

They were really great...I felt I would have liked to hear some of their music and get to know it before seeing them live again.

I like how they play guitar in harmony rather than one being lead and one rhythm. She has a beautiful voice...I had hoped she might join RT for something like a Heart Needs a Home with a male/female duet!

How right you are.  She has a lovely voice.  Sadly, they weren’t selling any merch at Southend, because the theatre wanted to take too large a slice of their sales.  The Cliffs Pavilion was a lovely venue, but the staff were rather officious.  The usherettes were buzzing round all evening, stopping people taking photographs, etc.

A great performance as usual from RT.  After playing ‘Wall of Death’, he mentioned that the lyrics were inspired by his childhood memories of the Kursaal Gardens.  You can get a brief glimpse of the actual Wall of Death in this clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oo57RLz46gk   The WoD appears at about 3.30.  
By coincidence, we had wandered round the Kursaal building in the afternoon.  It has a plaque stating that the Kursaal had the first female lion tamer in the country and the first female wall-of-death rider!
