Weren't Jaguar cars built at Coventry as well ? That would tie in with the 1980 tour when they performed at Leamington Spa (only 11.6 miles away from Coventry.)
I think you've missed the whole point here, the registration 709 UXU actually mean Pete Thomas was accidentally fired into space on a trip to NASA in 1979 on a space rocket a bit like Fireball XL5 and is forever orbiting 709 km above the earth ( like the Reg No of the VW beetle on the cover of Abbey Road whose registration symbolises that Paul would be 28 "if" he had survived !)
You can't mess with my brain, Elvis
I guess the Birmingham date will be a bar of chocolate...
As if there aren't other symbols he could us for Britain's second city like two underachieving football teams ( whoops there goes the North East, Merseyside, Glasgow, North London, Bristol, the whole of Yorkshire, etc etc ...........)
