Hi,

The camera police were out in force at Thin Lizzy tonight. You could more or less do what you wanted from your seat with an IPhone but take out a camera or try and use a IPhone down the front of an aisle and you would get a torch in the face or a tap on the shoulder. I brought my camera and never got a chance to use it once. Hopefully it won't be as bad at Horslips and I will still bring my camera tomorrow but won't be pushing it to the point of getting thrown out.

I'll do my best but no promises. Hopefully Daragh has a proper photo pass for the night.

John

Oh , there is a slight possibility that it might contain a small 'spoiler'......

Ok, I did get the tap on the shoulder from the camera police but luckily it was after my 4th video. So I managed to get one Trouble Pilgrims and three Horslips videos and a few photos. Hopefully I will get the chance to add to these on Saturday.

I won't spoil anything for those going on Saturday by posting anything today so you will all have to wait. But if you are going on Saturday then you are in for a treat.

BTW I did finally meet Admin tonight for the first time which was obviously the highlight of his night.

Also met a few others from Fantasia including Digger, Baloor & Ferdias Friend.

Well done , John ,and thank you for posting , you are the only one so far to do so !

I thought that Admin was supposed to be sick ? ..This is different from us all knowing that he is " Sick." !!!

Many thanks , John R.

Ok,

We are ready now with the photos from the last couple of days. Unfortunately my one photo of Johnny with the banjo had to go in the reject folder, it was out of focus, but here are a selection of photos from the last couple of nights.

I have also uploaded some of the Trouble Pilgrims.

I had planned to video The Snow It Melts The Soonest tonight but the camera police were right beside me when it started so I couldn't. I did get one video tonight but just as it ended they came over beside me again and spent the next hour watching me so I got no more videos and a lot less photos tonight.

Hopefully I will manage to get some videos up tomorrow.

John

Marvelous, thank you. Now with my luck I will win the lottery but be a poorer man for it having missed the show. What is money anyway?

Sign, sorry Rory, sorry Mick.

DD John , magnificent photos . Thank you very much for taking them and posting .Sorry you had so much grief from the camera nazis.... Really captures the atmosphere .

Some great shots of "The Olympia" in all it's glory. I love the stage door shots as well as all the rest .I was only there once...in 1974 to see Van in a really historic gig . Still have the ticket and the programme .I was still at school in NI at the time.

There is a similar venue in Edinburgh called "The King's Theatre"...a Victorian era "cameo" hall . Sadly it is no longer used for rock gigs but it certainly was in the 1970's "golden era " of rock music. I have a good story that involves a friend of mine and a certain world famous band at this venue ( hint , that have just released an astonishing cd/dvd set...)...the sort of thing that would never , ever happen these days . It involves carpet slippers and chips...... I must put it up some time when things are going really "quiet" on the site!

Donald , don't worry , thank you for trying . As to "what is money for?"....for you to win a shed load of so as to take Mick and I over the next time !

That reminds me , I must phone the police to tell them not to expect me on the runway ! I bet they still have a squad looking out for me.......

Thanks lads! John R.
