They're also doing the Leeds one.

We went to the Clapham Common one last year as we won tickets, and it was brilliant! I'm not normally keen on these outdoor gatherings of mostly-people-who-only-seem-to-go-out-once-a-year-and-don't-know-how-to-behave/can't handle their drink ;) BUT, the Clapham crowd were brilliant, it was a really good atmosphere throughout. Hoping that the League play that one next year (if it's happening).

I remember seeing THL play Clapham Common for a School Disco thing. I've a nagging suspicion that Gotharama were in attendance though I hadn't met any of them at that point. I also know that Limahl and Modern Romance were support, and Limahl pissed me off greatly by murdering a cover of Just Can't Get Enough.

Yeah, Leanne and I were there!! It was bl@@dy AWFUL lol! Not the acts - the crowd. T'was a different kettle of fish this year.... Maybe as there was no *school* theme, or maybe people are just growing up/can't afford to drink so much etc etc

I looked it up, P. 13th July 2002. A mere month before I picked you up out of a traffic jam and whisked you off to Newmarket Race Course. ;) Had also forgotten that ABC were second on the bill at that School Disco thing.

They haven't announced the London line up yet but A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS are playing some of them so if they're (AFOS) not playing London, I will go to Leeds (or somewhere else THL are playing) :D

End of December for 11 days, but too late for the tour. I'll email you.

Yeah, this was how the conversation went:

JJ: "Hi Simon, I'm heading over to the UK at the end of December. I realise you've already arranged the tour and sold most of the tickets, and also printed some skinny fit t-shirts with all the dates on. But hey, any chance of moving the tour a smidgeon - to a couple of weeks later - just for me? You know, just for old times' sake? After all, the t-shirts would become instant collectors' items, and did I ever mention that Susan once..."

SW: "F*ck off."

=D

You should post that Susan story more often. Perhaps weekly for any newbies popping by. Sure re-post the pic too. Make The League realise what they are missing. :lol:

Love the ironic name for these concerts, "Let's Rock" with no rock acts :lol:

I was at the London Lets Rock yesterday. The overall line up wasn't great but with THL headlining and it being within walking distance from home, how could I resist :P
They played a fast paced, hits filled festival set including Seconds and Being Boiled! :D Really glad I went - it might be the only time I see them this year (though the Electric Dreams festival in December is still on my 'maybe' list)

Howard Jones was on before THL and has a brand new electronic band line up - he was brilliant and the sound was perfect!

Ooh yes, slightly off-topic, I saw him debut his new band in May, it was a fantastic gig. Definitely catch him if you can. The new dancified version of Things Can Only get Better is unbelievable.

I only liked it because he played the real version first ;) It's my favourite HJ song, so if he'd only done the dancey version, I wouldn't have been happy, haha!

Just saw him play on Tuesday... he's been doing that electro remix for a while now (I think it's actually a remix by someone else, can't remember who), but it's really fun!
