...Ticket for the Event and what an event ! Thursday 23rd September 2004 on a "warm" evening the Mighty Audience play their 1st gig in over 30 years in Wolverhampton. Pictures a bit hazy im afraid. I remember the fairly
long drive up to Wolverhampton that afternoon, it was unusually mild and warm and no rain. Robin 2 Venue in Bilston (a suburb of
Wolverhampton) was pretty easy to find, With a car park at the rear which was free that time of day unusual!

..The 1st time in over 30 years live on stage. A huge cheer went up when Audience took to the
stage. But what would they collectively sound like after all this time, has time taken its toll on the roaring vocals of Howard Werth can Keith
Gemmell still make that screaming wall of sound on the Horns, Trevor Williams has the Bass man still got what it takes. And what of the new
drummer John Fisher, how can he ever take the seat of the incredible Tony Connor would we all be disappointed after such huge expectations?
..With the 1st notes of "you’re not smilin" I think the whole crowd probably felt like I did, huge grin on
my face and my jaw dropped I just could not believe live on stage "Audience" playing one of my all time favourite songs we were not disappointed
how can just 4 people make that huge sound! And Howard's vocals lost no power whatsoever. Mind you he was great at his solo gigs in 2001
and 2002 at Astor Deal. Anyone got any pictures of that one ? let me know cheers.
..Its just a shame that I did not have a better camera that evening, could have got some great
shots.The Audience classics rolled off one by one. Cant quite remember all the songs that evening. If my memory is right, Friends friend friend,
Nothing you do, House on the hill, Leave it unsaid, Ravioli, I think they may have even played Waverly Stagecoach. A more with it Fan may be
able to email me with set list for the evening, I was lost in that moment in time.
..Howard playing "Ravioli".The evening was split into 2 x 1 hour sessions with a break midway. We
probably all needed a break to absorb the sheer enormity of the event.
..The evening flew past very quickly, and the band signed memorabilia ect in the dressing room to
the right of the stage afterwards. They looked and sounded like they had a great time. 30+ years! seemed like yesterday.
... Wednesday 9th March 2005 Audience play the Robin 2 once again.
..Ticket says to be Live Album Recording but Album already recorded in Dec 2004 At Astor Theatre Deal.
..Stage setting before Audience play.
