    You start buying music that was played on the tour, only to find:

    1. It doesnt sound the same (mainly because everybodys alcohol levels arnt the same, theres not as much sniggering or laughing, theres no Trevor moaning about his driving hours or about the amount of drink on bus and no sound of lawn-mowers in back-ground!)

    2. Overall picture of the band doesnt look the same while playing it (Dont have a tramp on front row, no pints of beer on floor, nobody "Riverdancing" and Katrina's a better conductor than Frank and better looking than him!!)

    On one of Helens pics, here, Frank is conducting AND picking his nose at the same time, dont know how he manages it, thot he needed all his concentration to get thru Riverdance!!! :biggrin:

    Hahahahaha, Michelle that's quality!! :D

    That must have taken you ages! What's going on with Frank's legs tho, is he doing that funny dance again?!

    I think that sums up the whole trip pretty well, and not an instrument in sight!

    Playing Malaguena at band seems different somehow! I liked the Satuday concert version best.

    Those photos are wicked, and my glasses are fixed as well. Not had any alcohol since though. Funny that!

    Do you happen to know places, dates, and times for your tour? Some of us States-siders would be interested in finding out.

    Looking forward to it also! Just come off the phone to Frank who indicates it should be a tour to remember!!

    Does anyone know about programme? Is it frank that decides this or can we make suggestions (within reason)

    Yeah, Frank says all the venues are confirmed.

    You could suggest something to Frank music wise but 99% of the time he already has his programmes planned, apart from soloists who choose there own.

    Looking fwd to meeting old and new YABB'ers.
    "Thanks for coming you've been a right laugh now ..." .

    'Hall of the Mountain King' was definitely Frank's! Bless him for taking it at half speed - it made sight-reading it on the stand so much easier.
