A passing glance at the calendar on the wall, and I realise I’ve only got 30 more days to go before the start of my holidays! 30 Days to get myself organised…I’ve given up on CoRo putting up any more dates; there’s talk on the forum that ticket sales haven’t been sufficient to justify new bookings, which –if it’s true- is a shame. Still, I’m happy enough they’re taking the time to come over and play for us at all – last year at Moonlight Rising, when Eric told me they’d be touring the UK, as a day-old fan I was so overjoyed that I simply had to hug him silly for it; today, I’m just as thrilled to have the opportunity to be going to 3 more of their gigs. Although I could wish I hadn’t waited so long for more engagements to be announced that I missed out on my chance to accompany my friends to a James Marsters concert a week later. :(

But then, that’s so typical of me: always leaving things till the last minute, or too late. I’m surprised I booked my CoRo and flight tickets so early this time! All I need now, is to find a place to stay close to The Troubadour, one close to The Cavern Club, and book my train tickets to Liverpool…is it Euston one takes a train up there from?

While in London, I think I might try and take in the Caravaggio exhibition in the National Gallery, though I’m not fond of timed-ticket entry. And I’ve been thinking of going up to Liverpool on the Saturday, so that I may have time to do a bit of sight-seeing as well. I’ve never been there before, and apart from the Beatles tourist thing, I don’t really know what the place has to offer, but I think it will be interesting to find out. Maybe I can even take a ferry 'cross the Mersey!

I don't mind bidding for you, if that's the date you want. Let me know how much you're prepared to pay.

Hmmmm...well, ideally, I would want to come with you and Cass to Islington and help you prop up the bar there; but...that church gig, isn't that where hesadevil's going?

How much am I prepared to pay? £40-45? But the vendor only ships to the UK, apparently...

40 quid. That's as high as I'll go -- need to keep some money in the kitty in case CoRo decide on doing another show, after all.

No need to worry about such things! I'll send it on to you.

We could wait for an Islingston ticket on the other hand. There's still time.

Aww don't give up ... there's been nothing official... I still believe there will be more. Can you see them kicking their heels for a week without playing? .. I bet there's some sneaky behind the scenes working out of a LR here and there that's all :) .. I refuse to let the optimist in me be defeated! There said they wanted to play all the places they played last Oct and more .. so Manchester, Scotland and Ireland HAVE to be there .. they DO *sniff*

I might be going up to Liverpool on Saturday too .. and MIGHT (might might) drive ... if you are interested? Thinking of staying somewhere cheap ie here though haven't exactly checked HOW close it is .. cant really afford the hotels. For Friday night London we are staying here lol just so as you know ! where to avoid *L*

Good luck on a JM ticket .. *fingers crossed*

See you very soon!!

If I'm interested? Of course I'm interested...if, and I understand that it's a big 'if', you drive! No pressure, but...when will you know? ;-)

Thinking of staying somewhere cheap ie here

I was just looking at that site! And thinking, "oooh, that'll do me fine!" It says it's in the hub of Liverpool's cultural centre, which I took to mean: 'quite close to all the clubs and especially the Cavern Club', but if I'm wrong, what I save on my board I can spend on a cab, can't I?

Last time I went to The Troubadour, I stayed at a grotty little place a 10 minute walk away, that was not only dirt-cheap, but it came with a hair dryer as well! I can't remember what it was called, though; and the Lord Jim looks good to me -- and with you and Lorna are there already, it can only be gezellig!

Good luck on a JM ticket

Thanks -- though it's funny, 2 years ago, I would have moved heaven and earth to get in; now, all I want is a night out and a laugh with my mates! ;-)

It's going to be great! pohewa is with us too on Friday ..but Thursday night I'm just hanging out at her place. lol ..she who would not have needed to go to babelfish for gezellig !!

I will decide for definite Monday .. is that ok? We are all together at the weekend and some planning will be afoot.

hee - oh I totally understand .. though it could be a very expensive laugh! *G*

Sure. I may have just realised this morning that my 5th CoRo show's little over a month away now, but OTOH: it's little over a month! away -- I'm in no hurry yet!

though it could be a very expensive laugh! *G*

I fear so...especially if CoRo will do something that night, too! ;-)

I do indeed, I'll PM Dee Dee at CDS for you. She has tickets for both Islington and St James's at their cost price.

Have you seen that CoRo are appearing at Hush in Aberdeen April 29th-1st May?

Oh yes, please!

That is such brilliant news. Let's hope she still has them...

Yes. I know. All us CoRo addicts know. But unfortunately, that gig is only open to convention goers. And I love the boys, I really do, but £400 to kick my heels in Aberdeen for a few days waiting for them to start strumming their guitar/blow their horn/play their harmonica?

when Eric told me they’d be touring the UK, as a day-old fan I was so overjoyed that I simply had to hug him silly for it

Oh, yeah, and we all know why... ;D
