London, Thursday 19-July-2012.
Another musical legend at our local music venue Under The Bridge - this time Dr John.
We got there in good time as it is unreserved seating. There was a bit of confusion on the door as we were fitted with VIP wristbands by a newbie doorman. Mary breezed in ahead but the head doorman spotted the error and removed mine :-(
VIP tickets gave access to the back raised area with seating and nibbles on trays. This was a "Good Thing" for Mary's foot but a bad thing for me standing in the mosh pit. I blagged my way in "to talk to my wife" so we could sit together. To be fair we did not avail ourselves of the free food (as we had eaten beforehand), nor did we get a drinks voucher so my conscience is clear.
When we went to see Taj Mahal they did not segregate off the VIP area, it was all one, I am not sure if this is going to be a regular feature. We are back there again next week to see Thin Lizzy and this time we are splashing out on the VIP tickets - because we're worth it!

The good Doctor was on fine form and a good time was had by all.
