audience reviews

You lot in London are spoilt! Bring the electric proms up north and you might get a crowd reaction. Thec Coral are the best group around but everyone seemed to treat the gig like an everyday occurence. As i said you get to much in London! You take it for granted! I couldnt believe how quiet the crowd were. I/we travelled down from the wirral and had the time of our lives especially with sir Noel aswell. You southerners should be ashamed of yourselves. Bring the electric proms to Manchester or the new arena in Liverpool docks. You would get an atmosphere there!!! Let yourselves go!

Just awesome the true sound of Liverpool never have i heard such a unique sound that truly captures passion excitement and musicmanship. Please come back!
