The venue was superb. I loved the place. We were on corner of first balcony and it was great. Me, Macca, Shaunius, Ally, Becks, Ladyskaska, Cob etc. It was full but you could still come and go freely. It was brilliant up there. I saw BigDave moshing a few times, but I dont think I set foot in the downstairs hall all night. One of the best venues I've ever been to.


Ska Knight, ive never seen you so pissed, you tried to strangle me 5 times, then you punched me in the mouth when you tried to give me a hug outside Dan Murphy's, haha pmsl. Had a great few days, so many laughs, so many drinks, im suffering for it all now, need sleep. Archie think i passed you in Murphy's bar, wasnt sure if it was you or not, have you lost weight ?
then you disapeared. Great to see dark city and Claire and my pal TTN, thanks to Shaunius, Kaz, macca, lady S, Ska Knight==Big Dave, katherine, Ally ,for all the laughter, see you in manchester xx

Yup can only echo what's already been said,meeting up with forum members an Fb friends pre show after show and the Fred Perry party where I met most of the band(btw it was me who was staying at the back stage hotel which was brilliant).....Wasn't the best performance from the band IMO but the venue and atmosphere more than made up....cheers all till next time Wink Cool

I'm just recovering from a hectic , hilarious few days in Amsterdam. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet plenty of new ones. I'm just bloody knackered now Wink
I thought the gig was good. It made a change watching from up high , the atmosphere was tremendous( not sure who SkaKnight saw down the front but on this occasion it wasn't me ! I was actually stood next to the pissed up mess for the entire gig lol!)
One of the nicest people I met was called Donna , from Dundee, I wasn't so sure about her 6ft 8 , Paul weller obsessed other half though , a right dodgy geezer Wink
All in all a fantastic trip ; it's Manchester next , luckily I've got a month to repair my extremely battered bank account

.....top few days in the Dam......went in Danny Murphys for preshow on Weds but not the gig...and again on Thursday plus gig and FP aftershow...which was a bit of a blur TBH.

Enjoyed meeting up with with Skinhead Face who seems to be an ever present at virtually every ska based event on the planet and TTN who was busy with his camera outside DM's .

Charlie Victor 5 ...I must say you know how to party..non stop skanking...and yes that big fat doobie you were sucking on did slow you down albeit only temporarily Cool

Great venue...great gig ...top people.....a certain camaraderie among the UK Specials Fans on Tour.

Teflon..you were on my flight back to Gatwick with your good wife Sat PM...forgive me for not chatting but I was pretty tired , hungover and reeking of booze and fear that I would not have represented myself as I would prefer Very Happy

I was a little dissappointed that TH skipped the encore.....maybe if he could just lay off the fags for 5 mins his voice would hold out...he could smoke for England.

Roll on Ally Pally ...just the small matter of trying to secure myself a ticket

If anyone on here hears of a spare I'll buy it.
