There was a power failure on the West Coast main line and the train stopped just outside Crewe. After five minutes the Train Manager (that's what they call the Guard these days) told us what had happened and told us there there no trains moving past Crewe. Fifteen minutes later, we slowly moved into Crewe and sat in Crewe station for a further twenty five minutes. Then it was announced that anyone trying to get to London was to leave the train and get a train to Birmingham New Street. From BNS we would have to go to Moor Street station and get a train to Marylebone, our tickets would be valid for this service. So we got the train to Birmingham and when we got there it was announced the power was back on again and we could now go through to London Euston again. It was 1pm by now (we should have well been in Euston by then). We waited for the 1.30pm train from BNS to Euston and then we were told that was cancelled so we headed to Moor Street and got a train to Marylebone. We arrived in London at 4pm, three hours late and it took another hour to get to Greenwich from there and a further half hour to get ready. By this time there was only time for a pint and something to eat before the gig.
What can I say? That was just the best gig ever. I was stood on the second row in front of Terry and Philip, then a couple moved and me and an American bloke next to me dived in. I got the feeling that the band really enjoyed the gig as much as the audience did. I think what made it better for me was the fact that we actually managed to get there. Had we left Liverpool later we wouldn't have made it at all. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience (apart from the travel of course). I have a stiff neck today from looking upwards towards the stage (I should also learn that head banging is not good for a 42 year old woman). I also sang myself hoarse.
Thank you guys for a really good night. Hope it's not the last time I see you.
