5/23/2000: Mike Peters, Stantonbury Campus, Milton Keynes
The gig was almost cancelled due to problems with the crowd barrier, but eventually went ahead after a delay while the barrier was strengthened.
MPO can confirm rumours that Mike Peters & the New Electric Band will be touring in May as Special Guest to Big Country on the “Final Fling Tour” (Big Country’s Farewell tour before splitting up).
Mike and the boys are very much looking forward to returning to the UK in
May. Mike will be playing with a full electric line up and for those of you
who witnessed the shows in December, you will know that this tour promises
to be really special!Set List
Where Were You…
Spirit Of 76
Mike was late on due to a problem with the barriers and the extra support band. This meant it was a slightly shorter set than he appears to have played so far.
The set was fantastic and his voice was in fine form, and the band were cooking. Of course it was too short, but we loved it. The only down side was the poor turn out.
There was a small MP following, but loud and in form as you would expect.
