Another return for me to Norwich's Waterfront venue, where my passes were awaiting me and a certain, almost nervous, anticipation for what this evening was to bring. Because of the length of the band's set and a 10pm curfew, there was no support slot. As I walked around the venue, waiting for The Tubes to come on stage, I felt a little sense of pride for my home city as it seems that Norwich was the only headline gig after they had supported Alice Cooper on his recent tour. Nice one Norwich, and I hoped that we would show these dudes from across the pond that we were a worthy choice.
The roof went up as the audience, with an average age it seems of 55, screamed for more. And The Tubes came back for one more track, their hit song "She's a Beauty" from the "Outside Inside" album, with Fee resplendent in blazer and straw hat.
Oh, and by the way, I got to meet Fee Waybill <fangirl squee>

Tonight saw a welcome return for Review Elektro to Norwich's Waterfront venue, this time to enjoy the Celtic rockings of the original jock-rockers, Big Country. There was a good crowd, all in fine voice and the atmosphere was a joy be enveloped in.
Review for the fabulous Big Country gig at Norwich's Waterfront venue is almost done and will be up on the site this evening.
Work is underway to transfer reviews from the original Review Elektro website, something we hope to have completed by the end of this week.
And we are awaiting confirmations for some exciting gigs that are coming this way, so keep an eye for those.
