For us in the USA there are two shows in the Greater New York Area in December. One in NYC and one in Lakewood, NJ. The dates are the 8th and 9th of December, but I cannot remember which is which off the top of the ol' noggin.
I do know that the Theater in New York holds 800 people and looks like an old Church of some sort, and the NJ show is at the beautiful Strand Theater in Lakewood. Both are easily accessible from NYC or Philly for you lucky ones. I have been to the Strand afew times and the sound is terrific, so I would imagine this would be one great night from Ritchie and Company.
And can I take this opportunity to announce that, because our man Andy Brailsford at Fireworks did such an awesome interview with Richie and Candice (so good it spanned TWO issues) Ritchie and Candice were more than happy to come back and talk again about the new DVD and a whole host of other topics, including the possiblity of a certain JLT joining them on the next BN CD.
Fireworks 21 is out in a week or two. Buy it or I shall personally beat every one of you with a rolled up copy.
