Yep, Tim's brother - send easyJet the bill!

They must have insurance for such routine ineptitude.

The major question is why was the guitar going to Nice...  There was no gig in the list....

Not all the gigs get in the gig list, Phil! It was a private gig for the 50th birthday party of my friend Thierry, who first invited Cheap and Captain Sensible to play a notorious couple of gigs in Paris in the early '90s, then went on to organise solo gigs for me all over France over the next few years and released the French edition of "Immortal Rich" on his own label Datcha.

Magnificently.  Don't think I've ever enjoyed myself more at a TV gig or seen the crowd (or, at least, a decent section of it down the front) go quite so mental - especially on Bombsite Boys and One Chord Wonders.  All Adverts songs, of course, apart from a surprise bonus of Lord's Prayer at the end.

Set list (from memory, so not in order): all of Red Sea apart from New Church and Drowning Men, Male Assault, Television's Over, Back From the Dead, We Who Wait , a (great) slowed down version of Gary Gilmore, and Lord's Prayer.

One down, two to go.

Set list from Friday (I'm certain of this as I have a copy):

Tomahawk Cruise
Only One Flavour
My String Will Snap
Ready For the Axe
I Delete
Like a Rocket
2nd Class Citizens
Replay
Lion & Lamb
Expensive being Poor
Immortal Rich
Good Times Are Back
Runaway Train Driver

Good size audience, fewer than Thursday (in a smaller hall) probabaly split 50-50 between die-hard TV enthusiasts and the curious/ less familiar.

Of course, it was brilliant - especially to hear these most of songs played by a band for the first time.

Interesting setlist really. Thanks!

Sunday: TV initially embarrassed by being cheered before he was ready to go on, gently rebuking those who did so (guilty parties: primarily Rob-C and Dianne*).

No printed set list, so TV either had it all in his head or just did whatever he thought of at the time - and was at times as punked up as is humanly possible on acoustic guitar.  A special guest called Ross appeared on stage to provide ukulele accompaniment on 'We Who Wait'....no previous rehearsal undertaken (I think they'd just met on the day), but you'd never have known.  Leigh Heggarty joined to play on the last few numbers, culminating in One Chord Wonders.  45 minutes of TV bliss - a run through of the usual great stuff + (I think) one new song.  Now if only he could fit in 'Clone Town'.


* - v sweet girl - TV fan for just the last 2 years, but probably the most obsessed TV fan I've ever met.

Thanks very much for reporting!

About time you meet Alan (88 gigs) or Gabumon (100+).  ;)

V impressive - tho' I'm thinking more of emotional impact rather than numbers of gigs; my money's on Dianne to obsess anyone under the table.   :)

Fleagle has 100+ too. No idea about Klaus' number of gigs but he's obsessive enough to have run this website/forum as an Admin since 1997!! Also, have you ever read Tj's posts in here?  ;)

Klaus is Ancient, so he might the one with the most visited TV Gigs, Steffi visited much as well.

And yes Easyjet is a horrible(!) Airline, used them twice, one time they damaged my bag, the second time they lost it (fortunatly found it back after 2(!) weeks), and yes i working on the setlist, and often the secret gigs end in the archive later  :P
