Entertaining concert. Theatrical twist with video screens, men dressed in brown overalls with flat
caps and clipboards, many costume changes by Ryan O'Donnell (appropriate to songs).

Tiny PA system. Sound (from where I was) was OK, but nothing more (quite quiet).

Soundwise - 6.5 to 7.0 out of 10.0

Do what you will with it - except sell it :
You got it for nowt, you give it for nowt

Buy some official releases :
The Goose needs feeding if it's to continue to lay golden eggs for us all
You'll be glad you did - there's some terrific stuff out there
