Post subject: Brixton and Abbey road live Reply with quote

Just back to Ireland after Brixton gig which was quite frankly superb again.

small dark cloud and just in case anyone wants to get an abbey road recording on Thursday things were a bit shabby last night on this front.

walked in to gig, spoke to nice young man on Abbey road stall who informed me in the clearest terms that i would be handed a signed CD of the gig if I was one of the first 25 in the queue at the pick up point.

sweaty and tired post gig, waited for CD , then informed by nice man that mine was not signed as I was not one of the first 25 to order one. I told them that was not the understanding I was given when passing over my twenty quid and was told that was my problem, move on !

trying to cut a long story short (!)nice young man who told us the porkies in the first place owned up to his "mistake" and the whole tone of the conversation changed and it was apologies all round.

A bit disappointing really - so just be careful Thursday

( and sorry to go all Watchdog" on you )

That's weird because I didn't pay for a signed CD but got one when I handed in my card after the Gig Shocked

The deal was that the 1st 25 who purchased a voucher from the Merchandise stall (not the abbey road stall) before the gig where presented with a white voucher which entitled that person to get a signed cd after the gig from the abbey road stall regardless of where they are in the queue (to pick the cd up) everybody else got a black voucher which got them an unsigned one...to be honest unless you where in just after the venue doors opened there wasn't much chance of getting a signed one because they went really quickly

Indeed, point I was making was that this was not how the lad on the stall represented matters while taking my money!

Sugarman, does this mean you have my CD? Very Happy
