Françoise PiotrovskyImportant and especially respectful to be at the very beginning to see the entire performance of Catherine. She's well worth it. Sorry but I hate those people who are coming late thinking 'this is only the first part, we actually come for SM' and disturbing everybody 😠

Duncan Eyre.....explains brilliantly how it feels!

"So it's the day before... I'm off to Nottingham with my other half (I've brainwashed her). The day before is just as exciting, it's when all the memories come back for me. Riding the bus at 11 years old to buy New Gold Dream, my first gig in 86 at 15, seeing great support bands like the Silencers, Texas, Gun and even the quieter years, home town gig in Sheffield on the Cry tour then seeing momentum build again with 050505, GS and finally Big Music - my band charting again! Now Acoustic, different - what will it be like? Tomorrow will be a blur and a rush - today is about all those memories."

Julie JamesOur son and his partner gave us tickets for Nottingham on Christmas Day. Perfect gift - good taste passed down the genes.

Larelle Priptona ReadHere in Brid and ready to go for gig No. 3 🙂 Can it possibly top Liverpool? Unless I chance a selfie with you this time, Sir (as you can tell, I am horrendous with cameras/phones), or, if we happen to cross paths again and you remember/say my name...it'll be the only way Liverpool can be topped. I'm happy for you to try :-)))

Damien Victor Meldrew ThompsonI could kick myself for missing out on this tour but I have many memories of the concerts I have seen. You just can't beat the feeling of euphoria when the intro music starts and then builds and builds until bang! Mel smashes out the drums, the lights come on and Jim starts singing. Awesome feeling to see and hear it. 😀

Lisa Hartford10th time for me tomorrow. My husband chose your concert in Milton Keynes in 1986 over my 21st party!! Forgave him - wasn't my boyfriend then but was 2 weeks later! Met him in a nightclub called Waterfront ! And Don't you forget about me is one of 'our tunes' - played a lot when he's been on ops with RAF in Gulf and Afghan Falklands etc! Soundtrack of our 31 years together ! Seems like I booked tickets years ago - but at last it's tomorrow! Excited but predictably feel sad that attending a concert will probably feel a bit strange tomorrow. One sleep! 🙂

Natalie GaleThe day before for me too. My excitement has been building & building over the last few weeks especially after reading fans' posts of how amazing this SM tour is backed up by some truly wonderful photos. I'm absolutely 100% sure that I will not be let down. Only 1 more sleep to go - I can hardly wait for tomorrow evening to come round.
