Yeah, lol, well i think only about 8 people entered so it was a 50/50 chance.
Just been down there today. The nice Mr Bowler said I can have as many VIP wristbands as I want when I get in there, to allow the 808 posse into the VIP bars. Although I can't see the normal bars being that busy, but it's nice to have an 'upgrade'. Saying that you guys tend to have 'access all areas' anyhow
See you there peeps

We all arrived at the same time to be greeted by Graham, who gave us all GOLD wristbands to enable us to go backstage. This was a rare privilege indeed, but as it turned out this was the first of many surprises the moog maestro had in store for us.
We were then given permission to go ONstage during the gig itself. Yes ONstage!! This was a dream come true.
As ‘In Yer Face’ started we reluctantly crept into full view of the crowd, and as ‘Techno City’ began we got more confident and started to move around the stage, messing about with Darren.
It was then that Andy gave us a fan. Well that was it then. We all took in turns doing the ‘Eric’ dance, taking in the screams from the crowd.
Nick then said it was his ambition to dive-bomb into the crowd off a stage, so Andy reprogrammed ‘Timebomb’ to say ‘Divebomb’. Pete said he would test the water and go first. No sooner had we said “Pete, it’s a 10foot drop”, he was gone.
Darren then gave me the mic to try and ‘goad’ the crowd myself. Unbelievable.
Pete then reappeared, his head covered in lipstick kisses and his 808 logo on his old style t-shirt stretched so much from being pulled, it now looked like the new 808 t-shirt logo.
As ‘Cubik’ finished we all lined up at the front of the stage, with hands held, and bowed three times to the ecstatic cheers.
It was then that Graham invited us all back to his house for coffee and cake…................(there’s no place like home...........there’s no place like home.........there’s no place like home).
Nick, what did you wake me up for, I was dreaming about last night.
