The venue was absolutely packed out and the crowd were really up for it right from the start. I don’t know how Steve Grantley managed to come in on time at the start of Marching On as the only people who could hear my guitar intro were the crowd… there was none being fed to me on stage at all.
Tonight, I hardly played any guitar. I wanted to be in the audience and was soon all over the monitors, on top of the barrier and we’d only played five songs. I had to try and calm down but how can you do that when the next three songs are ‘Murder’, ‘Unsafe’ and ‘Absolute’.

Right from the start when Alarm 2000 hit the stage, the place erupted. Right from the start
Mike decided to join us in the crowd and it was great to be able to feel the
passion that came from the music.
Mike is particularly energetic tonight ( he looks thinner and fitter these days) perching on the crowd barrier to sing only managing to stay up there due to the help pf the crowd. He is fired up tonight.
