Otherwise there is only that guy that was on The Santo Spirito Album and La Passione Scott McBurns and at Santo Spirito also John Knowles, didn't know to be honest.
Could he still use John Knowles? He's still mentioned if you google him. Big questionmark.

Dear Anneke!

Scott McBurney is a filmmaker, not a manager or producer. He worked with Chris on his DVD boxes projects as director of photography.

John Knowles was last mentioned as Chris Rea's manager when Imagem Rec., an independent Dutch label reported to sign Chris (and the deal was over very quick, I reckon). I think it was 2013 or early 2014. I think somebody among the fans, even on this forum, may have John's contacts to ask him directly.

Best wishes

I know, but he was mentioned as manager on La Passione too. John Knowles isn't.
So it stays unclear to me.
Maybe he has been there, John Knowles...

Speaking of the tour again and the management as well, will Pat Baker be the tour manager again? In 2014 he was strangely substituted, as I was told. I will try to guess that via the concert organizers here in Russia but not sure I cope with that, of course. Bart has told me Pat last got in contact with him back in 2015, so not much of a hope...

And with Hernan's hints on the band for the album/tour, it is going to be almost similar to 2008 with Robert, Martin and Neil. Hope Sylvin joins the band as well as in 2014, and of course still hope for Max, as in 2012. The band members could give us a clue for the possible setlist.

Hi Ann, thanks a lot for this information. If I get a chance to talk to Russian gigs administration, the first thing I would ask is who is in charge from Chris's side, since if I wish to talk to CR management here, it would be the tour-manager, most likely. But in 2006 documentary you could also see John Knowles on the tour with the band.

Ann Andrey
With some Chris musicians I have a good vibe. To be honest, I do not encourage you to go any further for the reason that Chris was ennojecon them by saying something that Chris does not want to be told to him

No way Verherny, only what is known. We're speculating here.
Trust me :) No way I would do anything else, so does Andrey.Just read and think what we've read...

I'm just to say that I've got my ticket for Moscow concert too. That's very pleasant, because I thought that the former tour was the last I saw Chris Rea performing live. He'll be in Moscow at November 13. My ticket is about $350 in US dollars.

Hi Andrey,

thanks for posting this link here, I've been told privately by a friend of those who made this video that they shot it after Chris refused to be photographed with them as he seemed to be not in the mood, so they decided to make a video of him talking to his daughter instead. The video is unique, I reckon, as other fellow fans even did not know which hotel he stays in. BTW, Josephine posted some pictures of St. Petersburg tourist spots on her Instagram shortly after. I planned to meet Chris privately upon his visit to St. Petersburg, but the gig promoter could not help me, I think, because of Josie's coming and Chrisbeing busy with that.

best wishes
Andrew
