Jim Breeds… I did see him at Glastonbury some years ago.
Mick O’Dowd… Was at this one! Look at the price. Bet you can’t see him at that price now!
Doug Prentice… Saw him in the mid 70s, expecting the dynamic outgoing performer from the Caledonia Soul Orchestra (Too Late To Stop Now) days but got a grumpy singer who didn’t get up from the piano all night and didn’t speak a word to the audience. Certainly took the show out of show business!
John Wilde… I went with Beverly Martyn. Van had a great band who were quite young. We were awestruck. Even though he barely spoke his voice resonated across that theatre.
Rick Baldwin… I was there….”van the man” was as awesome as always.
Gavin Martin… Brilliant Rick Baldwin and Mick Odowd what a great place to see the master and you appreciated the privilege. Hymns is ace, saw him in Belfast round this time when he played the single first time he sung title Why Must I Always Explain? The heckler near me posed the inevitable “What’s this one about , Van?” Grrr
Liz Dees Dianto… I was there ! The female session musicians were amazing too !
Gavin Martin… Set list details from the night here. Essential Van site.
Andy Ellison… Sat that gig. He was brilliant at Brighton Dome last Tuesday with the tightest band I have ever heard.
