They forgot to mention that (almost) the only sight I'd see would be Manchester Royal Infirmary A&E ward.

My last CoRo gig in England, and I busted up my ankle taking a dive into the club. It was dark, and there was a step there that I missed. The management were complete pricks about it and so I'm off into East Grinstead in a minute to see about putting in a compensation claim.

Tell you one thing: it's not easy travelling from place to place when you're on crutches. Scratch that: it's not easy getting around on crutches, full stop. I'm a mass of pain.

However, there is a silver lining: CoRo have promised to come back to the UK next April. By that time, I should be fully mobile again, too.

I don't know when I'll be able to get to a computer again after this -- which means I also don't know when I'll be able to give you all my report on the CoRo minitour -- sorry! But right now, I simply don't feel up to stringing two meaningful sentences on the subject together...

Poor you. I totally sympathise after my bankside slide which ended with the same result - crutches. (Did you know the French call them Cannes Anglais? Just a bit of useless information thrown in there.)Do as Paratti suggests. I failed to do the ice and elevation thing and took over 10 days to get fully mobile again.

As for missing Manchester - there's not a lot to miss once you've said the concert was ruined. Manchester Royal Infirmary is one of the few Victorian buildings in the city to survive the waves of redevelopment in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. My first encounter with it was the result of the stolen tricycle incident. I was 4, the getaway route was down a steep hill with railings at the bottom. Needless to say, I mis-timed the turn.

Cannes anglais? How weird...I actually met a French girl at the London CoRo gig...

And I daresay the Royal Infirmary hasn't changed a bit since your last visit there. Well, A&E certainly didn't look as if it had...
