Well I'm not on the forum much, tend to be a bit of a lurker! Hope you enjoyed the boat tour after the pub.

It's really heart-warming to read all these exuberant posts about Wembley. I've been away from the forum for awhile because my pesky job has been extra-pesky lately, but have been following along as well as I could. Special thanks to everyone who's shared pics and vids - what an amazing night it must have been!

That November tour is mighty tempting...

I believe you mean "a part". Being "apart" from it would mean precisely the opposite of what I think you meant! :P

When does Frank rail against capitalism or "chivvy fans to rise up against big business"? Oh right, he plays acoustic guitar so therefore must be a left-wing protest singer...

I remember that same writer writing a bad review of the Shepherd's Bush show.

I am going to choose not to comment too much on the writer, but suffice to say I do not think she is the right person to be writing gig reviews, as everything I have ever read by her misses the point completely.

I find it quite hard to put into words just how incredible the Wembley gig was (I'm sure I'm not the only one).

I doubt there are few performers who can make every person in the room feel like he's singing just to them, but at the same time uniting everyone. I doubt there were many people in that room who came away from the gig with bad memories or having not shared a special moment while there.

I could relive that gig every single night. For now I'll just have to relive it as a playlist on my ipod :(
I couldn't do this on my own

Kinda makes you wonder how she wound up writing gig reviews for the Grauniad, doesn't it? :wink:
Edit: Just read the review.
