His show was appauling. He hardly raised a laugh and kept turning round and talking to the band. He eventually just walked off and cut the show short.
The evening performance was better I was told - not surprising, it could not have been worse.
Can any one beat that.
We should have been given our money back it really was that bad.

Petra Jean Phillipson - at the South Bank a few months ago.
Saw her with David Holmes years ago - great stuff.
Liked her first album.
But this was utter self-indulgent pish with a healthy dose of WTF. Started out with a ten minute solo for tuba and electronica with "dramatic" panting. Should have walked out at that point. The only gig where I've ever fallen asleep.
And walked out on The Who (yeh fuck you Townsend) near the end though.
Bingley Hall staffordshire, could have had a lot to do with them sounding so [/QUOTE]
Not the best venue from an acoustic point of view.
And yes, if you're up the front, the sound quality gets a lot lower down the list.
Live bands are like a car crash..... in so many ways.
Ask 3 people @ a gig what they thought & you'll often get 3 very diffrent opinions.
This reminds me of Massive Attack.
My female gig buddy couldn't take the antics of the mosh pit (it were a bit lively) so moved to a quieter spot.
I had the best time. But well away from the action, someone chucked up on her.
Which spoilt her evening.....just a lot.
Jeff Beck - Albert Hall,after 90 mins of endless guitar solo's we had enough and buggered off.
Can - Greyhound Croydon,I can't even describe how bad they were.
Santana at the Hammersmith Odeon 20 odd years ago. The acoustics were shocking. Could hardly hear Carlos' guitar.
Whoever feels predestined to see and not to believe will find all believers too noisy and pushy: he guards against them.
