I've never played this particular venue. It's a bit like an old aircraft hanger. It even had a tin roof. The gig was another stormer, although I did go a bit ballistic in a sort of 'Raw Tour' sort of way… you know, thrashing about the stage, breaking strings, throwing guitars, ad-libbing bits into songs and genuinely pushing the band and the audience on to another level.

Mike was determined to get the crowd going and he did, leaving his guitar behind for a number of songs and challenging the audience to start dancing. It was a good show considering the venue and the early start/finish.
