The Mechanics, Burnley 02/03/12

The first time for us performing at the Mechanics Theatre certainly did not disappoint and
I have gotta say a big thanks to all the theatre staff for their help and hospitality.
This was the first show where they projected our image onto a big screen behind us throughout the performance which made the stage look even bigger than it was. It was quite easy to get lost amongst the vast amount of corridors until we slowly got used to the layout of the place. It’s a wonderful old building that has been graced with many legendary names from the early 20th century to present day.
For some reason every time we head North up the A1 we always end up stopping at Blyth services, where you certainly attack the bank balance for a sandwich and coffee.
Audience participation was not short in supply for this show. We thoroughly enjoyed playing the two set show with the audience up dancing and giving plenty of feedback between the songs. Great to hear them singing back at me during an impromptu solo performance of Kooks. Good to see that Paul and Nick who were at the Bedford convention were also in attendance and it was lovely to meet people after the show as well. Many thanks to you all for making the Burnley show such a wonderful night for us.
