Please try 0161 275 2930 in case of any remaining tickets. For those with tickets, take a spare t shirt as it looks like the night promises to be a hot one! Mike Peters has been trawling through his Alarm songbook and the night promises to be bursting at the seams with Alarm songs rare and popular in tribute to the recently released Alarm 2000 Collection.

20th July 2000
Whilst out socialising recently in Manchester, Mike was impressed by a young
four piece band called Haven, so much so that he has invited them to support
at the forthcoming Alarm 2000 show on Friday. Haven are managed by the same
people as The Smiths and Mike's tip is that for those of you with tickets,
to get down early to catch Haven if you can.Set List

Mike played his old black acoustic guitar with the Gibson humbucker pick-up
and before One Step closer to home plugged Dave Sharp’s forthcoming concerts
in the UK.. Mike asked the audience to go along and show Dave the same
support as he had enjoyed for Alarm 2000 and at the end of the show
dedicated the set to Dave, Nige and Eddie.Fan Comments
