In the run up to the gig Almond had posted on his website that he might cancel, and had laryngitis. Anyway, he didn't, and put on a great show.
2 hours, and the voice held out magnificently, despite his best attempts to ham this up for sympathy.
Highlights on the night were Jacky, Pearly Spencer, and Say Hello Wave Goodbye...and the fabulous Neil X on guitar - definitely still hints of Sputnik when he starts rocking.
A very enjoyable night. Engaging (as he was last time I saw him), a great voice, and a surprisingly strong collection of songs to fill two hours.
