Loved the show, producer did a great job!

Brian Mole, Horsham
Great show, very eclectic and good to hear some real musical treats.

Carol from herts
Fantastic, just a year younger than Norman and it was great to hear tunes of a journey we all went on and are still going on. Mash up on talking heads was best!!! reminded me of a mash up of scarlet fantastic 'fast cars and motorbikes' at a rave in 1988/9. Does fatboy slim know this one??? more shows like this !

luke,brighton
wkd show, really cool music!!

Paul O'Regan, Brighton, UK
The mix is awesome and amazing variety from a geniuse in bringing a new genre of music to the millions. By the way, on a personal note, FatBoySlims New Years Day gig on Madiera Drive, Brighton was brilliant. Especially, when we finally realised his mixing sounded wierd. Found out next day the FatBoySlim got electricuted 15 times on his set in driving rain which blew everything in the act before. Respect to a guy that never lets the fans down. X-men would be proud to have you on their side.

dvj fitz - Leicester
