    I don't photograph well - in my imagination I look like Julia Roberts but cameras don't seem to pick that up somehow -
    LOL Angela!!!!! My dear, sweet, penguin, you're a good 8 inches shorter, t'is true, BUT Ms Roberts has *nothing* on your beauty or talent!!!!

    Alas, I've been told (when thin) I look like John Denver, and (when heavy)like Dame Judi Dench..one's dead and one's me mum's age....I think I'm not flattered

    Angela: If I may quote the great man himself...
    "The first thing we look for is the beauty within".

    Don't let Gary Perkins (our other opening act) hear you knock Worksop. It's almost his home town. Anyway, it is exotic. I saw a tree near it. And...Yes it's a Saturday.

    Our February tour will be based much more around the weekends for the benefit of those brave enough to see the show more than once.

    I thought seeing as I posted the December dates it might be an idea to post October and November's dates too. I'll compile a list of dates and venues and then post them later today.
    We don't have too many booked because The Corn Dogs and The Bunch already had a few commitments in their diaries.

    Hannah: I'd love a copy of the pics if it's not a problem. Let me know how much they cost you.

    I'm definitely going to cut down on the sweets. Notice I said down, and not out? Look out for a slim, trim, not really him, Garth on our February/March dates.

    No problem with tickets for you and your friend Marjolijn. You'll be able to get them on the door, if not ask for me. I did speak to Eileen at Double 'H' and she said she had it under control

    Love, Rick

    Me? Knock Worksop? Worksop, a land flowing with - er - stuff? Didn't Garth immortalise the town in That Summer? 'We were a thousand miles from Worksop, wheatfields as far as I could see'?

    He didn't? Oh - never mind then... I'll just have to wonder what the 'beauty within' Worksop could be - since I've never been there yet. No doubt I'll find out soon enough.

    Just mini M&Ms till then, is it?

    No mention of Ros and me, I notice (sniffle)... No, it's all right, don't worry about us - we'll just stand outside with a flask of tea and try to imagine what songs we're missing...

    Hi Angela

    I'm so sorry, I thought you and Ros had already got your tickets arranged. I thought Eileen had told me you'd been in touch with her. I can reserve a couple for you both if you like, and you can pick them up from the box office. I arranged it for Marjolijn because she was having trouble contacting Double 'H'. Would you like your tickets to be seated near her.

    I refuse to be dragged into a slanging match about Worksop due to the fact that I have to go back there later in the year. They were very nice to us in June when we played there. It's a wonderful place according to my Uncle Joe who has lived near it for most of his life. But that's just his opinion. I beleive the beauty withing might be referring to the little chip shop just along from the theatre.

    I really do have to watch out for the M&Ms you know. we have a 7 piece band trying to cram onto a stage about 10% of the size of Garth's. If I get too big there won't be room.

    Let me know about the tickets

    Love, Rick

    I had trouble getting a reply from the box office. Left my name and number on Sunday and kept ringing on Monday morning until I got through. I did forget to ask what time it starts 7.30ish??? The really nice lady at the box office said she didn't have many tickets left.


    Marjolijn

    See you there hopefully.

    You bet!

    That's OK - we didn't actually know we were going ourselves until after Friday's show! Ros tried getting hold of Eileen but only managed to get her answerphone. We've conferred via the miracle of telephonic technology and YES PLEASE, we would be very happy if you could reserve a couple of tickets for us. I don't know whether the tickets have any preference (perhaps you could ask them ) but we'd like to be sitting as close to Marjolijn as possible, please and thank you.

    I really do have to watch out for the M&Ms you know. we have a 7 piece band trying to cram onto a stage about 10% of the size of Garth's. If I get too big there won't be room.
    So get the band to go on a diet then - if they all lose an inch it won't hurt if you gain six, will it? Works out much better that way - lots less painful for you too (except of course the Wranglers will be a little tighter - but Garth would say that's a good thing!).

    Sorry - I didn't quite catch that... someone forgot to bring their earplugs for me last Friday

    Of course I do, Marjolijn - where else would I want to sit?

    We've only just got our voices back from Friday - oh, good, just in time for the next one!

    Well finally I got my internet access back today

    So apologises for being around 4 days behind everyone here but I just wanted to give my (shortish) 2 cents worth from Friday's show, although you guys already did great reviews.

    Well I have to say the show is sooooooo and I had a blast, in fact there were times during the night when I could have been back at The Opry last October (and no Angela I don't just mean my bunny hopping to Callin' Baton Rouge!).

    I have to say Rick that you're very brave to do this show, especially with so many of us Garthnutts around that are very critical and most certainly protective of Garth and his music.
    So I take (well I would if I had one!) my hat off to you guys for putting this on. You have worked (well at some point anyway) so hard to get this right and its a great job you have all done.
    It was nice to meet and chat with you after too and to hear you speak about Garth with such respect and as a fan yourself. Not to mention of course how honoured you were to be in the same photo album as Garth....that was cute.

    Well I hope you had as much fun as we did. I think its only been today that my voice as come back to near normal, so now I'm resting it for Thursday night, so pleeeeaaaaasssssseee save tix for Angela and I.


    Regrading the December dates....when did Worksop move into Yorkshire?

    ....and you want pics of everyone too? You know I thought I saw a dartboard at the back of the stage aswell, so on that basis I'm not sure its a good idea at all.
    But seeing as you are such a nice soppy guy, I'll let you have this one.

    Jude, Sue & Marjolijn - looking forward to meeting you guys again.

    See y'all Thursday night

    Take care
    Ros

    Concert Tickets For Garthnutts!!!

    Hi there
    I'm just off to the studio to pick up the CD's for tomorrow's show. I won't be back at my computer 'til monday.

    I've left tickets on the door as follows....

    2 for Marjolijn
    2 for Angela & Ros
    2 for Jude

    If anyone else wants to go I think there will be some seats left you can get at the door. I hope that's correct, and I'll see you there.

    Love, Rick

    Hi it's me
    I'm only on here because I still have a couple of people to e.mail this page to. We couldn't possibly have asked for nicer reviews. I know I've already said, but thanks.
    Love, Rick

    Thank you! Best show I've been to for a very long time - since Dublin I think.
