Just when you think it’s all over, another "must see" is put in front of you. Most of the tickets were set aside for the students and even I wasn’t a committed enough fan to sleep out overnight to make sure of one of the limited number of tickets for the general public. Now in recent years there are two things that that have become certainties of life in Britain, a) a student will try and earn a few extra pounds to supplement their income and b) since E-bay was introduced, everyone’s a ticket tout. Sure enough just a few hours after they had gone on sale to the students, pairs of tickets became available for auction. After watching several lots of tickets being sold over a couple of days to gauge the value of winning bids, I set myself a limit on what I thought I could get a pair for. Hey presto, I won at the third attempt.

As the day got nearer, there was a tremendous amount of publicity being generated by the local media and it was starting to become a massive event. We arrived at the student refectory and the doors had not been opened yet. The queue of people stretched more than a hundred metres around the corner but it was a beautiful and sunny day so nobody minded. After a short while the doors were opened and the queue began to move. Once inside and it felt very small – smaller than Bingley Hall all those years ago. A nice intimate gig was anticipated and they didn’t disappoint. Unusually starting with Who Are You, the new Who still kicked ass. Even the new songs that hadn’t been released yet didn’t seem to lack anything. But my God, it was hot in there.

The only disappointments – a) my wife, who is slightly over 1.6 metres tall, couldn’t see very well, b) no CD or (especially) DVD for sale so she could see what she had missed.

Other memories:
Roger strolling onto the stage with a mug of tea(?).
Pete “These are heart attack conditions up here and it ain’t me who’s going to have one”.
