24 May, 2013 Newmarket In The Summer
Posted at 12:25h in All News, Jim's Diary
I recall back in the day when you could envisage a “gig” being in a pub, club or theatre. I then recall the excitement when our gigs first took place in arenas and stadiums. These days a gig can take place in all manner of places. Fields, forests, Roman amphitheatres, parks, castles, city plazas, under bridges, remote islands and…er… shopping mall forecourts even. Our most unusual performance surely was when we performed at the top of Eiffel Tower in Paris – albeit a play back for the Top Of The Pops TV show. Most spectacular? Performing in front of the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, on the Eve of the World Cup opening ceremony, or possibly in Singapore before the Formula One night race. In truth I enjoyed each and every one as I am sure I will when we play at Newmarket Racecourse next month. It will be a first for us in that type of venue, and from what I have heard from the various bands that have already played, a really quite special event, particularly great on a summer´s night. I can´t wait and we hope to see you there!
