I'll be there, definately.

For anyone still in doubt: reports from Germany mention an Arena-song will be played.

I think it's great that John and Paul keep the heritage as well....

It was really nice to see them play. Paul sang the John Mitchell tracks as well. I though he did pretty good on the Queensryche and Deep Purple track.
He put on some weight and a beard, but it was good to see him after a 9 years absence. Loved what I heard as well. Kalle told me he's writing a second album, and I'm looking forward to that. They really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Hey Tom,

you're lucky that Nicky didn't read this - he probably would have asked you whether you'd been in Germany without visiting...  ;) ;D ;)

What was it like? Any Arena-stuff played? Was John Mitchell just singing or playing guitar as well...??

Must have been strange to see 3/5 of the Visitor line-up together.

Blind Ego were great but they did no Arena stuff. Cant remember the set list at all. John did play guitar as well as sing and he was great as always. So weird to see him and John J and Paul on stage together. I met Paul afterwards for the first time and he was very sweet and humble. Not at all how i expected him to be.
Met Company Croydon and Tina (i think..sorry) and HelenDo. (I hope you got home ok Helen)
It was a really good night. Even the support band were ok
Had no idea what Blind ego were like but i was impressed and now at last have the album. Hope they do some more stuff together!

First time online after a few days away.....

The Blind Ego gig was great. Good to see you again Bellanova. The set list was a mixture of RWPL tracks (the only one I knew being Roses) and tracks off Mirror. I'm hopeless at remembering  what's been played, but I'm sure it included:

Moon and Sun, Break You, Mirror, Don't Ask Me Why, Moorland & Obsession.

Amazing to see Paul Wrightson live at last. Great to have a few words with JJ & to meet Alan Reed.

I'm definitely intending to check out more RWPL.

Hey, that caught my attention, Helen. (You prob expected that  :) )

What was he doing there, and what was he like?

Is he originally Scot, or where does he come from?

Nicky.
