I will definately be there. I was beginning to lose hope of an Arena gig this year. And it would be great to hear some of the new stuff! *horns*

Don't wat to nag but It's a shame that they've used an old picture/painting for that.  :-\

A new tour, a new album, four new years etcetcetc.

Chances are that as they are still in the writing phase of the album there probably is no new artwork or pictures to use.

Or even better than that!!! *horns*

Just got in myself.

Paul Manzi was superb, understandably very nervous at the start but really got into it after a couple of songs. You really are in for a treat later today!!

Some really nice surprises in the set, I'll say no more ;)

You should, not going to talk set lists as I don't want to spoil it for anyone but a new song, a not played before song and some old favourites and a fantastic new singer.

I'm told Paul was really, really nervous (shitting himself was the term used) before last night, he didn't need to be he delivered those songs perfectly imho.

Excellent night at The Peel, first time visit there for me, great venue and atmosphere.

Paul Manzi is a great singer and a more than adequate replacement for Rob. A little nervous at first but after the first few songs it was like he had been singing with the band for years. Have never seen the band live with John Carson or Paul Wrightson so can't really comment on how he compares to them but the early stuff sounded great anyway.

Great to see the band back !!

Great night at the Peel & great to have the band back again.

Thought Paul was excellent.

Can't wait for a new album & more gigs.

Totally agree, just sorry I didn't get the chance to catch up with you, not seen you in ages!

As you can probably gather I don't post on here very often. Sorry I missed you & the family at the Peel. I had to be up bright & early the next day, so I had to leave the gig before the end.

Hope to catch you at some Arena gigs in 2011  *horns*

Hi, I know I'm a little bit late, but I've only just received the clearance to join this forum. If anyone is interested, here is a link to some photos I took at The Peel gig in November -
