Heaven 17 Concert at Buxton Opera House last night. A Great gig.

My review
Last night 80s legends Heaven 17 performed their Penthouse and Pavement gig at Buxton Opera House.
The support act was Go Go Bot.

My favourite track they did was Temptation which had an amzing over the top start to it.
Also a track that you never expected was a cover of Party Fears Two by The Associates which was performed stunningly.

Heaven 17 signing Autographs
The band members were signing autographs outside the stage door afterwards

The moment Glenn Gregory turned into Victor Meldrew !!!
This was a very funny and surreal moment in Buxton last night.
It was 11:43pm and the members of Heaven17 had been outside the stage door signing autographs for fans for a while and Glenn Gregory had gone back in, leaving just Martyn Ware outside.
Suddenly the window opened on the floor above the stage door and Glenn appeared in flat cap and said "Keep the noise down, theres people that have got to get up for work in the morning you know", this was met by lots of laughter from the crowd.

  1. Thought the Gig was superb. Heaven 17 were obviously enjoying playing in such a magnificent setting - the audience were loving it too. thought GoGoBot were good too - pretty tight and a big complex sound for a three piece - reckon we'll be hearing more from them in the future.
