Well...crap. Guess I'll NOT get a live stream then.

Okay, it's not just me. Hopefully it will come up soon. If not, we'll still be able to watch it the rest of the month. So, back to the original comment, I hope everyone there has a great time.

Actually, it is just you. Everyone else here is really watching the performance.

Gremlins. Either in the Broadcast equipment, or Bills equipment. It was a tad late last year too.

Alan, please give Simon my best 👍

Was it only last year they had the last live stream? It seems ages ago. My memory gets worse...Oh! What's the word I'm looking for? Never mind.

@Alan Last year was the first simulcast of the event.

 

The word you are looking for is “spandex”.

At least I am not alone in not seeing this. Last time it pretty much started on time and without a hitch. Hope everything is ok.

Didn’t know the next Bill Nelson album was going to be “Off Air”.

I thought it was going to be Off In The Air Age.

@Alan I thought “Off The Air” was a Peter Gabriel tune.

I did have an Ace of Spades! How did you do that?

Two assumptions.

 

1) They are not waiting for us, and the gig is going ahead.

 

2) Even if t'interweb is broken, they can make a local recording, for streaming later.

 

Otherwise... :(

6 days ago

Believe you are correct with option No. 1.

I'm betting that the live performance is over by now, or nearly so. Sigh...I hope it was recorded so we can at least see it later. Bill is not going to be pleased.....

Wait! Was the concert yesterday?

  • Just wanted to say a sincere thank you to everyone for their amazing kindness and warmth our family received last Saturday in Leeds . As a lifelong fan of Bill Nelson it was an honour to be invited to the Old Haunts Event to represent our daughter`s charity Sara`s Hope Foundation A sincere thank you to Bill for his loyal support and having Bill as a Patron of Sara`s charity means so much to me and my family .Through Bill's music I have met so many amazing people who we consider family . Ian Haydock, Eddie McSheffrey,Duncan Noons, Paul Gilby,Jon Wallinger,Martin Bostock, Caroline and Colin Hunter are such a great team and a lovely bunch of warm hearted people who always organise a wonderful event ..right from the Nelsonica`s to the recent event. All of friends really are good people and it was fab seeing old and new faces .I must say a big thank you to a great guy Mike Robinson for donating the magnificent guitar which Bill kindly personalised with his unique style of artwork. Thanks to everyone who purchased tickets for the charity prize draw and congratulations to the worthy winner.Another special guy who is a loyal supporter of Sara`s charity Paul Cosgrove presented us with a cheque for 322.50 from his work and our lovely friend from Ireland made a cash donation - Thank you Eugene and Noleen ! In total the charity raised an amazing 1679.50 GBP... We were over the moon but not surprised as Bill and his Nelsonian family have always been very generous to our daughters charity . Bill was is superb form and we loved every second of his live performance and were blown away with the Old Haunts album ...a magical and memorable day So thank you Bill , Emi ,Elle Elliot and Julia for your kindness and to Bill for making music which is both magical , unique and always connects with my heart - See you next year Warmest wishes Ged Julie Sara Mark and Faye xxxxx
