As a joke, I recently said "I would travel the world, even to Tokio to see Tom Tom Club", but this date in nearby London seems like a serious problem in my agenda... damn.

Supper, anyone?

Well, I saw him make his debut on his two instruments for Birmingham City Football Club-early 70,s.
(I saw others make their Birmingham debut in the late-70's too.But they had proper instruments ;)
Later,considering he has Jeff Lynnes Gold Record for Out of the Blue-and introduced Mr.Blue Sky to the
St.Andrews tannoy for the Blues Home Games, I guess he is of a musical-bent,Young Maaan) :blbl:

To Don, aka Mr. DRC, and everyone else attending... enjoy, be safe and wise, and give us a setlist and details. Wish I were there...

I saw Tangerine Dream at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in June 2005 (the same evening Roxy Music headlined the sold out Isle of Wight Festival). It is a fine venue (believe it was a BBC TV studio once upon a time)...

Cheers from the States, Chandler
