    Eric Clapton plays Hyde Park (London) on Sunday 8th July with an excellent supporting bill, & I know that a few other people on here are attending. Yes @Mansonienne, I am thinking of you!

    Do you have your tickets yet? I don't.

    Yes!!!
    Oh wait - @stratman323 do you mean have I received them yet? No. We may have to pick up ours at the box office since they don’t seem to be mailing them abroad this year. But last year we only got them about a week before the show.

    Ah, I see. OK, well I need a reply from someone based in the UK then, I suppose.

    I know the name but I can't recall where from. Did he sing something on a B.B. King album?

    I had to look it up, but, yes, apparently he did. Perhaps I’m being a snob. I think of him as an Italian power ballad singer...

    You're probably right. For some strange reason I think I was confusing him with Buckwheat Zydeco! When is he on?

    I’m not sure, but it looks as if he comes on between Chas & Dave and Gary Clarke, Jr.

    I didn't know Chas & Dave were on either. Great, Chas Hodges is cool, he backed Jerry Lee Lewis in the 60s & the 70s. I always meant to see them but never got round to it. So meet up after Chas & Dave? Sounds good to me.

    Assuming I get my tickets.....

    Last year the only decent beer to be had was way up on the north side of the park, in the part they call the Village Green. Since I will be there as of Friday, I’ll suss it out. Assuming you are into craft beer... there are also often some nice small acts at the Summer stage.

    Depends what you mean by craft beer, but probably yes. I think I'll be the only one of my group who's likely to drink more than a pint all day!

    Brilliant song.



    I'm never quite sure whether Chas has grown a beard or whether he's just swallowed a cat.....

    Well, proper beer: not Heineken.
    Claire and I definitely have more than one but by day 3 we may be slowing down....
