Re: London Blues Fest 2013

Fantastic news after such a long drought.

Looks like Chris is playing in the evening of 31 October. Tickets go on sale 9am on 19 July. Wish I could be there but being on the other side of the world makes it pretty impossible - unless I win Lotto :D .

Re: Book about Chris BUT not by Chris

When you check out the book it says there are 78 pages. I wonder where they get all the info to fill 78 pages? It also looks like they only print the book when you request it as per the piece below. I suggest taking a look at Google for this company and read the comments and blogs before parting wit...

Book about Chris BUT not by Chris

I was astounded to find on our local auction site a book about Chris Rea for sale, cost NZ$70. The book is published by an outfit called Alphascript Publishing and they are selling the book about Chris on the internet and through other book outlets? It is not a cheap book and I would think true fans...

Re: Berlin February4th 2012 ICC - SPOILER!!!

Thanks for that. For those that cannot make the concerts is really great to hear reports from those who have. Did Chris play Josephine on the Banjo? I have figured out that his setlist will always include Josephine, Julia, Stainsby Girls, Stony Road and Easy Rider for their personal reference to tho...

Well this piece of music has haunted me for age...

This is what Chris said in an interview with Simon Hayes on Wharf.co.uk on 22 August 2011 "Once I finish something I don't want to look at it. It's done, gone. I did my biography, which was fun, but as soon as I finished it, I went on to something else. Now they are saying I should bring it out, but...

I've read that Rhino is giving away tickets to a viewing in London on 5 September. If they choose me (if only) I'd be lucky to get there in time from NZ!! How do they choose who gets to go anyway?
