Re: If Chris asked you?????

Oh yes, you all came up with a few good ones.... I would like to hear Gone Fishing, once. Square peg, round hole, would also be quite OK. What I liked best about the last tour, was the first song, after the Delmonts. The start of the HBN part, that screaming guitar.... this goes deep dowm into your ...

Re: Chris in Harrogate - DISAPPOINTED !

Well, the discussion about sitting or standing won't be solvin' a lot of things. I'm 57, (hence this nick alain55- I joined here two years ago, so... meanwhile I'm a bit older again), and I wouldn't mind standing, if it would bring a bit of warmth into the audience. A few remarks, however.... and pe...

[quote="lilybee"]Hey Alan,
I am a die-hard Chris Rea fan

Hey, Little B,
( you won't get mad at me I hope, 'cos I keep calling you Little B ?? It's my pet name for you.)

I understand your passion, I just keep to the music, and also stories about the man, relating to the music.

Greetings, and love

Re: HBN Concerts Capacity

Hey Beautiful People....., What exactly are we trying to prove here ???? If an artist, in his late fifties, can sing and play before audiences in the thousands, time after time, 3-4 times a week, all over Europe..... hey? wouldn't you all call this a big success ? And if in countries behind the old ...

Re: Plymouth 14/03/08

[quote="Scott, UK"]Hi I wasn't quite sure what to make of The Delmonts. >>> Well, of course not. It is very unusual for an artist to do his own support act. I've seen it before, with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, but that was in the seventies of last century. Just consider it as a warming- up thing, ...

Re: HBN Concerts Capacity

If its the reason why Chris is booking smaller halls ? Dont know. he attrackts an other (perhaps a bit less) audience then back in the "old" days, and someone has to pay for renting the hall :D Well people, let's not play hide-and-seek about it. In those old days, the 80's and 90's of last century,...

Re: Antwerp concert May 11

I don't know if you have understood me (my english is not very good, it's true). When I say that I'd like to see Chris Rea in a "smaller room", it's just I think it would be a nice experience to listen to him that way. Ah, but yes, PAB, I do know what you mean, and yes, it would be nice to see Chri...

Re: New around here, from Belgium

Fan for LP's, later CD's. The first time I saw Chris live, was around 1991- 1992, in Brussels, for the Auberge tour. That was a surprise for me, when I saw him play the guitar so well... . It was a very commercial period, and I prefer the music from these days.
