Scenario one week before:

"Have you seen The Hollies are at the Theatre Royal on Sunday? Shall we go?"

"Used to be one of my favourite groups but I haven't seen them live since the Seventies."

"It's not the original line up; it won't be the same, we will only be disappointed. Alan's left now and Carl Wayne
from the Move is fronting the band.

"Uummm, not sure. Maybe it will make a change. Ok, we'll give it a go; see you in the bar at 7ish."

Scenario in the pub after the gig:

"Wasn't that fantastic!? What a show. The harmonies, the musicianship. I'd forgotten what a great singer Carl Wayne is. His voice is really something else..."

"I loved the format, it wasn't just a run through of The Hollies hits, I enjoyed hearing The Move numbers and what a nice touch that Mud were included too; made it very special."

"The Soldier's song gave me goose bumps. That was the best night out for ages."

"I could watch it all over again, right now. Didn't they look like they were enjoying every minute too. Great camaraderie. WOW!"

And to think we nearly didn't go....!!
