    I ‘like’ all their songs but I do have favourites tracks so when I know they’re gonna play loads of favourites I can relax a little .. ..

    Most bands will play the "greatest hits"...Metallica for example are unlikely to drop songs like One, Nothing else matters, Enter sandman and Master of puppets plus there will always be the hardcore fan favourites. If a band are promoting a new album this will usually be heavily featured.

    Thatís true but many of my faves arenít the normal Ďsinglesí or Ďhitsí so itís important ( to me ) that my some or even most of Ďmyí fave tracks are gonna be played ( or likely to be ) .

    I also canít abide it when they decide to play a new version of one of their own classic songs

    Just received the Sunderland Empire version of the Fame the Musical programme - it will be very interesting to see how different (or same) the copy is compared to other theatres around the country.

    I have just received the Stoke Regent Theatre version of the Fame the Musical programme in the post - it is fascinating seeing the differences there is when it comes to adverts and theatre details compared to the Sunderland Empire one.

    We talked on the Odeon Cinema thread about the nuisance of people using mobile phones whilst at the pictures - well, I can definitely understand why mobile phones are not popular in the theatre, and it's not just the fact that people don't switch them off during a performance. (I am sure that I read the same debate inside an issue of The Stage a couple of years ago as well).

    Apparently, they're also a Health and Safety Hazard as they can overheat and burst into flames as Jason Manford observed for himself in Manchester. Talk about a hotline...

    We saw a retro show by a band called Lipstick On Your Collar a coupla weeks ago. As you can probably guess, they concentrated on music between about 1955 and 1965. Bloody brilliant it was!!!

    Anyway, at one point, there was the sound of a mobile going off. The singer stopped what she was talking about and asked who had left their phone on.

    No-one volunteered so she started asking the band. Eventually, she picked on the keyboardist! He then picked up a very ornate, old fashioned phone (complete with cradle), picked up the receiver, said "Hello, baby!" then launched into Chantilly Lace!

    Superb!
