Wandered around the venue a few times Woody but never saw ya?
Dudley is a *strange* place :-/ (sorry to any Midlanders!). I asked at the hotel if there was an internet cafe in town as I had a few hours to kill before the gig, to be met with the response "This is Dudley" as if I'd asked a really odd question, probably only surpassed by my question later on to Reception - "hi, do you possibly have a hairdryer I could borrow please?"........... This was met with a blank stare and the word "hairdryer?" repeated back at me. I wondered if I'd walked into a modern day Stepford or something - eeek! I like JBs as a venue, just hate the journey back home to Brighton from there, it's taken me nearly 6 hours. Didn't notice any dodgy sound, but thought DV's vocals could've been louder.
I enjoyed the gig loads but Belfast was *way* better! The crowd participation in Belfast surpassed last night's by a mile.
A good couple of nights tho - it's been fun :-)
