joanna: Good weekend in Buxton

For those who may have thought a Monday night in Feb on the northern moors,given recent weather was not a good combo.....WRONG.. SO SO wrong...."sooooweeee". Have faith my friends and pull out all the stops to get there next time. The same show? no no no. Very different. Always different. Once the guys were strapped in (literally) they were flying and soaring, twisting and turning and yet fixed so so fixed. Often seeming to physically struggle to break free from where they had gone. Thank you to Steve. Good to see some "Stranger" in there.... drug free tunes too! not at all bad. Barry obviously hadnt done his homework as we didnt get The Lighthouse!(ha ha) but we were treated to a huge slug of harmonica which I thought worked well against the violin.. missed you Barry. Adam was quietly commanding at the back and Robbie smiling in his zone... and what was that chuckling about then guys? Lincoln was hiding again and James happy looked happy. Soon too quickly it was all done and some folk were rushing off to where? and others were wandering and milling around in the warm cocoon protected from the oh so cold night air.... Lovely. Just brilliant. Thank you x Jo l

raffles: SPELLING!

...meant "threw" in of course, DOH!

raffles: Agreed!

SH certainly through in a good handful of surprises. What a start! No Bleeding Hearts had many in awe, many who I guessed didn't know the track. What a sound...the synth ing around the hall was haunting, and Steve's delivery of a song full of sadness and despair was gripping. It was a brave move to open the show with such a piece and it worked a treat!! Cavaliers was GIGANTIC!! Theatrical and rocky, really original Rebel music. Ballerina opened the second half and again was really unexpected. Great show, different lighting to what I've been used to, but very effective. The band played brilliantly too and Steve really looked like he'd missed the rock music on stage with him. More please...!!!

chris morton: Mrs

Fabulous night at Buxton. Brilliant renditions of Cavaliers and Tumbling Down reminded me of those youthful hormonal surges that once were euphoric but which now plague me for all the wrong reasons. Still, doesnt stop me appreciating strong forearms and cute haircuts (know what I'm talking about?). Great to share stories, smiles and Shiraz with so many 'old' friends. Thanks everyone. Looking forward to next time. Happy days :)

Pandorah: Buxton

Stunning show in the Opera house last night. surprising set list brilliant in fact ! ! Had me in suspense at every cord change ! And colour change ! Must mention the Awesome lighting! It reminded me ! not unlike the 2000 back with band tour ! Special . In a special room. And the Man and the band where enjoying themselves ! It was clear for all to see ! Nice to see robbie resume centre stage :-) invited by the leader to Show us all how to Ride the waves ! Brilliant ! Sebastian mid set was perfection and gave up some space for James to shine. ! Missed the lighthouse and Barry's gem ! The jewel in the crown on occasions . Some impressive playing from all on stage Adam never fails to impart a joy to follow , let alone watch ! Harmonies ! Wonderfully harmonies from all the boys even Lincoln was adding something extra special apart from his fab bass . You just had to be there!

sb20169: Orchestral Concert, Manchester

Hi Steve. Read the latest on Manchester plans for the projected next Orchestral Concert. You should'nt be too hard on yourself re. your comments at Birmingham and the fan singled out etc.We're all fans at the end of the day and we forgive the occasional comment - made "Live" and within an accepted "moment". We all knew you were communicating on a new and Risen concept;the Artiste in Direct Contact with his Audience, where an intimacy develops as you know, through time and technology, even more when we attend the concert and see you perform in personal format and multiplicity. But you have developed beyond that and convention - you have created the opportunity for Fan loyalty and Artiste creativity to merge in a performance to be determined by you - as to the content and delivery and venue - where scope for introducing an eccletive and randomly selected performance/ song can be matched by the drama of presentation in terms of the moment, atmosphere, venue, lighting, archive imagery and memerobilia, igniting memories of past significance and moreover, casting further the drama again - of the past, still current and relevant. Do you actually realise that you possess more relevance in terms of innovation and alternative comment and viewpoint than ever before - I don't see this coming from anyone else. When you do present your show in Manchester, please let it exemplify the drama of your Music, without the confine of Album Track Order - show off your creativity without confinement - you have more than a Lloyd Webber could ever design or hope for - your Music in ORCHESTRAL Form is unsurpassed within the contemporary. Take it forward and we all will follow - more over, others will see your Music for what it is - unique aND TOTALLY ORIGINAL. SB

RachelPAtoSH: Silver Disc Sells For Charity

The Silver Disc, auctioned for Charity, has fetched £888, a wonderful result. We, and the family of Bill Gibb, who donated the Lot (presented to Steve in 1977 for sales of Love's A Prima Donna album) feel this is a wonderful result, and thank all who took part. Well done, again!!

iantanner: Revisiting Older Albums

The Candidate & Hobo With A Grin - sometimes these two fantastic albums get forgotten. I've also been listening to the Guido Dossche single Ich Bin Gott which Steve guests on, totally different but really good.

iantanner: Hideaway

Wow!! Thanks Steve for sharing this with us, a fantastic edit. Does this mean we may have a dvd to look forward to?

Greetings. Sorry, but we had to delete your posting, as it contained confidential information ( re an address). Please rest assured, your request will be dealt with next week. Steve's agent will contact you. Have a nice weekend. Kind regards, RACHEL

GedKen: Hi Ruthy

Earlier in the gig Steve did point how our sense of humour does not always carry across into Europe. Remember when he introduced the band? Coming to Adam on drums Steve explained that he had asked Stuart Elliot to perform but Stuart was unavailable. With tongue (firmly) in cheek Steve went on to say that of course he asked Stuart first.... after all Stuart is a better drummer than Adam. Steve then enjoyed surfed the ripple of horror from some of the mainland European fans ('How can you say that openly with Adam sat just behind you?'). Great fun. 'The guy at the back' story did promote one or two adverse responses on the forum - but I'm sure the guy concerned will cherish the moment always; the spot-lit performer reaching out across thousands and touching the life of someone up in the dark of the Gods.

Ruth S: To Stella Day and Olsch455

Hi Stella.Thanks for the translation, all those words make sense and can be used, aufziehen would probably come closest.And thanks for your welcoming words of having me "on board". Pandora's suggestion of a bet does appeal to me, maybe I did get it totally wrong, which I hope, but as you see, Olsch455 had exactly the same feelings as I did.Glad I'm not the only one - Olsch-danke für deine unterstützenden und bestätigenden Worte. Kam mir schon echt blöd vor überhaupt etwas gesagt zu haben. Froh, das du ähnlich empfunden hast. But I think, that's enough said about it - thrilled to have been there, happy to finally have made it to this forum. Nice WE everybody. Ruth

Stella Day: Ruth S

Hi Ruth, Looked up "josh" for you in Google translate but I'm not sure which word in German comes closest to gentle teasing with no harm meant. You could try veräppeln,aufziehen,verulken or Spaß machen. Not sure if that helps. Anyway glad you're finally "onboard" with us all thanks to Andy. Looking at olsch455's post (in Google translate) it would seem that Steve's sense of humour doesn't translate well to our European friends....which is a shame.....and their loss.

leonacht: BIND LYRICS

Ruth , Without judging or ruling , sometimes wy way of showing appreciation or admiration is ' teasing ' a little bit . Everybody make's his own frame of humour . We saw already 8 or 9 live performances of S.H. and we like his way of little challenges . No day is the same , no audience is the same , every artist has his own way..... and that is how we like it ; different styles , different moments , different emotions but one of the best , better than the rest.... S.H.

olsch455: An Ruth und Steve

Habe an anderer Stelle schon geschrieben, welch wundervollen Abend ich in der Symphony Hall verbracht habe. Auch ich habe auf dem Balkon gesessen, habe meine Karte sehr früh gekauft. Ich sitze dort, wo ich vermute, dass ich mich am wohlsten fühlen werde. Als Steve seinen Scherz !? machte, war ich froh, dass ich nicht gemeint war. Es war mir peinlich und ich hatte Mitgefühl mit dem Angesprochenen. Es war der einzige unschöne Moment, das hätte nicht sein müssen. Vielleicht verstehe ich den englischen Humor auch nicht.

Ruth S: To Stella and Pandora

Hi Stella, have been trying again and again (of course not everyday) to post something and it didn't work. Ask Andy who is running this page how we finally succeded (he had to do it, change registrations around and so on....)that's why I crept out of the woodwork so late. Hi Pandora, I only met my boyfriend last year and of course played Steve's music to him, otherwise he wouldn't have agreed to fly over from Germany just for the concert. As for the lyrics - even if I do speak English quite well, I was never able to translate the songs into something that makes sense in German, so I'm sure a lot of the poetry is lost on me, sorry - doesn't change my love for the songs,though. And speaking of not understanding: what does "joshing" means - my google translater couldn't help.

Pandorah: poetic justice

Ruth ! has that really been playing on your mind all this time ? I thought at the time it was just an acknowlegment ! a nod in the direction of a long lost friend and a £5 bet ! and that someone had just come up ( back ) to see him again ! as stella's observations rightly says "a gentle joshing " :-) A fan of 30 years Ruth! wow :-) ( cant quite understand why your boyfriend had never heard of Steve Harley though ! ) have you never play'd his love songs to him ? shared the romance ? I'd of thought you would have known Mr Harley well enough through his music over the years to realise his choice of words are just poetic ! and for me, just to be there and see him in that Symphony Hall playing to all his fans was to me poetic justice ! now theres a great album. and for the record ! I dont recall the upper tear tickets being much cheaper ! if any ! correct me if I'm wronge. still ! glad you enjoyed the concert as much as we all did. it was as you say Fantastic. also wish you and your boyfriend will enjoy many more together .

Thursday, 24 January 2013

Stella Day: To Ruth S

What are you talking about Ruth? Have you lost your sense of humour or did you never have one? Seems to me some people can't tell the difference between a gentle joshing and an insult. and another thing....if you felt so strongly how come it took you three months to creep out of the woodwork to say so? :) Stella.

Ruth S: Hi everybody.

Just registered to post a comment on the B’ham Symphonie hall event in Nov and for Steve to hopefully read it. I don’t need to say what a fantastic night we had, it’s been mentioned by so many others. We flew over from Germany, me being a fan for over 30 years, my boyfriend not having heard of Steve Harley before. As I said, a great night but what made it just that little bit less enjoyable was Steve’s comment on the guy who bought the first ticket. We also were sitting up there and I could see how proud he was at being mentioned, he actually stood up. Maybe he didn’t even realize that he was told off/ put down infront of the whole audience. Not every body is able to buy the really expensive tickets. There are social benefitters. Maybe he couldn’t really afford it but had to be there to see his idol and so, what the heck, he made sure he got his ticket, no matter what the consequences were. Maybe he just is a tight arse but we all don’t know so Steve shouldn’t have made fun of him.

robijo: Australian Tour

So excited about Steve and band coming here to Australia. How do I find out about dates and venues. Rockwiz show on SBS prompted my excitement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRZ6LaL-MNI I was luckly enough to see Steve at The Venue in London late 1981 or early 82, so for me it's been a long time between drinks. So excited!

rebelfreak1: Pocklington continued

....People around me were watching Steve perform for the the first time since the seventies,and some for the first time ever. The feedback I got from them was all positive. Full of surprise and delight,and of course me being me,got quite a few to commit to getting online and booking for Buxton in February,because as I told them,the full rock band show is another experience altogether and not to be missed.Made quite a few very happy with handing out my replenished supply of signed Birmingham flyers,(Thanks Steve once again).All you lucky enough to be at the forum tonight,enjoy and please come back on here or in the forum to post your thoughts. Merry Christmas and a Rebellious New Year, Jimbo. SEE YOU IN BUXTON ABOUT EIGHT WEEKS TIME !
