yes.......they really did have blow up santas!! 2 in fact!!! it was only a mini tour just before Xmas obviously and he did 3 or 4 nights straight at wembley arena (christmas 1988, on the back of the new light through old windows album) . all sold out, 12,000 a night, it was brilliant.
when i said about people dancing the whole of the arena was up, not just a handful, it was such a night. funnily enough i was up in my loft today and i was looking through all my old programmes, going back to the shamrock diaries tour.
i really wish he would do some really old ones that people had forgotten about. he used to open the show with 'nothings happening by the sea' so moody it was superb. you can see him play it on the 'aims gala video' i got my copy through the now defunct uk fan club. bart used to have some of the old newsletters on this website and it was really good reading them agaain after so long. we used to meet up that way at the concerts all over the country.
so much to talk about and so little time.......
