I`ve never seen the man rock so good, the boy is on form.
(John Ramsay)

It was
a special night and good fun too. Great to see Dave back in the UK
(Katrina Copping)

Great to see Dave again and he was really rockin’. The new songs
are really strong and I can’t wait for the album to come out.
(Jason Bradley)

The band were on top form and powered their way through new
songs and old – the new songs are sounding great – Holy Walkin’, Heartbeat, House of Mercy – the new album is going to be a killer!

It was a historical moment in the life of any Alarm fan and I feel privileged to
have been there.
(Graham Lampen)
