Best London Gig Story

Met so many lovely people before the gig, did a lot of photos, one cheeky fan got two kisses.

After the gig, found a couple I had met earlier. Turns out that she had passed out from, uh, over-excitement I guess. Flat out on the floor. Two fans immediately whisked her out to the patio to resuscitate her, and then one went back in to tell her boyfriend that his girlfriend had passed out.

Of course, he was too busy dancing and hadn’t noticed! It wasn’t until the song finished that they were finally able to get his attention and let him know that his sweetheart was outside…

  1. Just got back to Donegal after last nights show, what a show! great to chat to you at the bar prior to the gig Steve (I’m the guy who postponed his honeymoon to see your final show in ’94)
    Great to chat to Ciaran after the gig too, a warm welcome awaits next time you visit Ballybofey Ciaran (shopping in McElhinneys eh?, not very rock n roll is it?) Honarary membership of the Irish Scunthorpe Utd supporters club is yours!

    Ray and Ciaran…you guys should seriously look into doing an acoustic show or two next time you’re back home.

    Keep on burning brightly Petrols, there’s gotta be more shows in the future.
    Blow that Electric Picnic away!!

    all the best
