Oh My God, There’s James Last! News Posted by John Hoare on 30th November 2003, 12:03 Yes, OK, this is just an excuse to do a load of Meltdown quotes. Although at least it gives me the chance to say yet again that the episode is brilliant, and anyone who hates it is a fool. Anyway, just to inform you all NOT TO MISS Mr. Last’s 2004 Birthday Tour. The provisional dates he is playing in the United Kingdom are: Date Venue Friday 23rd April Plymouth Pavilions Saturday 24th April Brighton Centre Sunday 25th April Birmingham Acadamy Monday 26th April Nottingham Royal Tuesday 27th April Cardiff International Arena Thursday 29th April Royal Albert Hall Friday 30th April Saturday 1st May Sunday 2nd May Bournemouth International Arena Friday 7th May Clyde Auditorium Saturday 8th May Preston Guildhall Sunday 9th May Sheffield Arena “The gentleman of music” is also playing dates in Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg. For details of buying tickets for the UK shows, go to www.ticketzone.co.uk. I personally think we should all turn up to one of the dates and annoy everyone by reciting Meltdown word for word. I wonder if James Last fans can turn nasty? Meanwhile, his greatest hits album, Gold, was released on November 17th. The perfect Christmas gift for the Rimmer in your family.
