Can anyone tell me the song Steve sang in what would have been the interval? Just him, Bill Wickens and keyboard ! It gave me goosebumps. Thank you

With guitar??

Jolly roger, thank you so much; i’ve just listened and that is definitely the one although I think he sang it better on the night! It was a wonderful concert, he was on top form despite having to sit throughout. I think there were a couple of times he wanted to get up and rock it out hahahaha. I’ve been a fan for 40 years and still love his music today as much as back then. Quality will always win the day. long may he continue

Travelled up from Essex for this concert. What a beautiful part of the world and I can see why Steve likes coming here. Got to admire Steve for making this concert following his broken hip. He must have been in some pain but sounded superb on the night.

The only disappointment for me was the noisy crowd on the balcony (or VIP section as it was described on the night). I was told this section was hired for a private party. They were apparently there for someone's 60th and not to see Steve. If this is true, I think it is totally disrespectful to Steve or any artist who may be performing under those conditions.

Would love to know where Robbie is, Paul is good, but Robbie takes some beating in my opinion!!!

We travelled from Northants, had my tickets for months, he was fabulous despite not being able to move around.
You’re right about the noise, so ignorant and disrespectful - who has a party at a concert!!!
I lived in Holmfirth for several years and so love coming back, I would definitely go to that venue again.
