I can't wait for tomorrow night when I see The Hollies at Kilworth House! It's been well over a year since I last saw them in April 2016, in Wimbledon!
I'm looking forward to seeing Kilworth House as well, as I kept missing out whenever The Hollies have been there before.
I'll let you know how it all goes Smile

Another excellent concert last night at Kilworth.

A great night!

Hi John, it certainly was an excellent show at Kilworth. It was the first time I had been there, what a lovely venue! Thank you for giving the set list. I downsized my handbag and didn't have a pen or paper! You confirmed for me that King Midas was first, I thought I had imagined it. Peter sang the lead and I was wondering why Steve wasn't doing that. Wasn't the song cut short?
I liked the new arrangement of I Can't Tell the Bottom from the Top. Peter started the song on his own on stage, as if it was the solo/acoustic version, then the other lads came back to accompany him. Fantastic, brought a tear to my eye!
Another highlight was The Air that I Breathe, apart from the usual reasons, before the song Peter asked the audience to get out their mobile phones and shine the light from them. Everyone was waving their arms to the song with the lights, must have looked quite good from the stage. I saw Rob Haywood taking photos, look forward to seeing them.
I always enjoy the 'back to basic' versions of Just One Look and Stay, where poor Ian on the keyboards is not needed!
I bought a new t-shirt before the show, with fluorescent pink print. I wore it to breakfast this morning at Kilworth, if you saw someone wearing that, it probably was me!
Roll on Guildford in October!!

Hi Dawn. Glad you enjoyed the show and the venue. I think that was the 4th time we've been to Kilworth to see The Hollies. They usually go there every 2 years.

Yes, you are right. It was a shortened version of King Midas. Not sure why.

We travelled back after the show so didn't stay overnight. I saw those T-Shirts on sale before the show. They didn't have my size!!

Hope you enjoy Guildford. We can't make any further concerts this year but the friends we were with at Kilworth, they'll be at Guildford as well. Look forward to receiving a review.

And can't wait to see the 2018 tour dates.

Unfortunately, I won't be going to the show at Guildford tomorrow. I have had a very heavy cold all week that I can't shake off. I don't think anyone sitting near me would appreciate me blowing my nose and coughing all the time.
(I wish I wasn't near me at the moment!)
Very disappointing!
I hope anyone going can let us know about it - particularly if they begin with a short version of 'King Midas' as they did at Kilworth House.

We are back home after a short break in Malvern and another fabulous night with the Hollies. It makes such a difference to the atmosphere in a theatre when it is obvious that the band on stage are having a good time too. From my scrambled notes I believe that the set list was the same as the one posted from Kilworth, beginning with the short version of King Midas. If my memory is correct Steve did have a big part to play joining in with this song.
Two comments I made notes of - Bobby said the book is finished - he has "legal guys reading it" in case he has to take some things out!!
The other great news came from Peter - he said the Hollies will continue touring (health permitting) as long as people want to see them. I guess that will mean many more tours.
We bought yet another Live Hits Cd to give away, this time to the kind neighbour who gave us a lift to the station to get the train to Malvern. He listens to a lot of "heavier rock" and said he hasn't been to a good concert for years. We may be able to persuade him to come to Nottingham next April to listen to the best.

Thanks for the report Emily. Glad you enjoyed the show and good to hear that Bobby's book is finished!! Fed up, sitting here, typing this, blowing my nose and thinking I should be at Guildford now Sad

Hi Dawn

Peter just before starting Just One Look said we are going to try something different at Tony's suggestion who immediately said don't blame me. They sang around one mike as it was originally recorded. As Tony said it was because we couldn't afford any more. Shame you missed such a good show. We did Malvern and Tunbridge and along with some of our friends we agreed that in our opinion that Guildford was the best we have seen them perform. And we have seen them many times. It all looks good for Norway next week which quite a few of us are going to.

Thank you, Emily and Ails7, for the reports on the show.

Dawn, you have my sympathy for your cold. I have allergies, but the symptoms are the same. Yech.

Hi Ails7, glad Guildford show was good. Have a great time in Norway, I'm so envious!

Thanks Frostina, yes I suffer from allergies too. Such a nuisance, isn't it. I'm fine in the summer when people have hayfever, but I normally start when spring starts here - apparently due to tree pollen!
9th day of this cold now, aarrgh! No idea where I caught it, no one I know has one. If it was nearer Christmas time, I could apply to lead Santa's reindeer Shocked

Hi Dawn don't know if you go on Facebook and are a member of any of the various Hollies group pages but a few of us have been posting some photos from the 4 concerts.
