At least one third of the band arrived in Riga. I was on the same flight as Chris. You know you have reached rockstar status when you catch a £70 flight from Doncaster to Riga on Wizz Air and there is a man at arrivals with a The Sisters of Mercy sign waiting for you. I wonder why AE wasn't there to greet him, isn't that what you do for friends! :?

You seriously expect that he would get 1st class or business class flight?

I don't know how much the band get for one gig, but they're ceratinly not Guns 'n' Roses or Beyone.

First Class on Wizz Air is not having squawking child anywhere close!

I will have a walk to the venue soon and see if I can see stage times. If there is wi-fi at the venue I will try to give updates of the show.

The Doktor is stage left tonight for whatever reason! (Would post a picture but for some reason it ain't happening) AE just watched the first two numbers of support band then disappeared, probably to iron his fluorescent green shirt!! :lol:

Perhaps - it is usually on the right when you look at the stage from the audience.

Yep. That's stage left (house right).
I used to be a stage manager & yep, it takes a bit of getting used to .
Especially if you're flying a piece of scenery in & hoping no-one's stood underneath it.
