Apparently Simon Nicol is stuck in Greece (according to FB), a victim of the Thomas Cook collapse by the sound of it, and will be missing both the RT birthday bash, and the start of recording for Fairport's new album.  He is not a happy man...


Poor Simon - that really sucks.  He should be there and will be missed.

I understand that Bob Mould made quite the impression!

Yes, Simon was there for ‘Meet on the Ledge’.

Magnificent concert.  Just magnificent.  I now understand why the tickets were so expensive!

He rocked it up a bit. Great first song, followed up by a second which was so similar I had to check I hadn't been sucked into a wormhole and gone back 5 minutes in time. Good stuff, though.

Amazing concert - what a cavalcade of talent! The proverbial curate's egg, as these things inevitably tend to be, but when it was good it was absolutely fantastic!

I've seen some camera footage of Bob Mould - he was fabulous ! Brilliantly and respectfully duetting with RT on "Turning Of The Tide", hope some more footage surfaces later. Apparently, they also played Sugar's "If I Can't Change Your Mind".

Excellent night, glad Simon made it for the encore.

No cameras unfortunately, so anything will likely appear on youtube etc. mobile footage aplenty being taken. Pretty much a 3 hour gig, with a 30 minute interval, so it ran 1930-2300.

Audience mikes hanging from the rafters, so I expect a sound recording - 3 disc set if they include everything.

Now looking for a comprehensive set list, including the artists guesting on each track. There was a Carthys segment when RT didn't feature, so that might get excluded.

Overwhelming! So many styles, heros, awsome talent on stage and celebration echoing from the rafters.

I'm really glad everyone had a great time but, perversely, having looked at the setlist I also feel slightly less sad that I was forced to miss it. I would have liked to see the Bob Mould, Richard & Linda and Loudon Wainwright sections and I presume that Hug You Like A Mountain was with Eliza Carthy and Teddy Thompson. I love that song but otherwise, whilst I am sure that I would have enjoyed it and the atmosphere would have been special, n terms of song choices and guests there is little there that excites me.

Who was there from FC/ex FC, apart from the late Simon Nicol?

Just remember, kids - YouTube’s new algorithm specifically bars any user who has previously posted online complaining about smartphones at gigs.  Grin

God wouldn't it be amazing to have some smartphone footage of some great 70's gigs of our favourite bands at their peak...!!  
Preparing my Steeleye Archive website would have been sooo much easier if social media had been in the 70's-90's!!    (but less fun !)
