Just out of curiosity, what time did it start and finish? Was there a support?

I assume they didn't show the football first on the second night?

Another thing was the merchandise seemed very well priced. Tour tee shirt €20, signed tour poster €10 and mug €5. Was it a clear out sale? What were the prices in the UK?

The show started at 20h45 and ended about two hours later.
There was no support.
No football was shown.
That meant that we were home before midnight! :)

I can't remember but they were way more than that at Blenheim Palace , in Sterling , worse still.

Nottingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Newcastle : T-shirts £25, Poster £10, Mug £6 and the dreaded tea-towel also £6 - and I was going to buy one for each of the three ladies in my life one each for Christmas ( and to remind them what their true roles in life are !) :shock:

Having now heard a tape of this show, I can confirm my guess was correct. He's doing a bit of Mr. Big Stuff (Jean Knight, 1971, Stax Records)
