While we're on the subject, and im sure its been raised before, at the beginning of Logos when the introducer says, 'thank you for been patient' (followed by an s'awlright :-)), what happened so he had to apologise? was anyone here, there in '82 and can give us a write up?

it started 40-45 minutes late (or at least the doors opened late)...so we were standing around for ages. I know for a fact there was an afternoon gig as I spoke to somebody who went to it at a recent fan meet, so it's possible they had equipment problems that delayed the evening gig. I should ask their manager one day

Proof I was there, I might have mentioned this before ;)

I liked the shows in the 90s where Ambient Monkeys was playing and it gradually got louder before the curtain went down...was that the Tournado tour?

wow would you look at that? Just £4.50 a ticket. I got my ticket from the Hammersmith Odeon in '86 and it cost £5. So between 82 and 86, ticket prices went up by 50p! Now with booking fees, postage fees and im on the end of the phone so can charge you what i like fees. Your looking at around £30 . :-(
