Seems like there were plenty of others who thought the same way, Lesley. A few years ago, Stackridge used to regularly pull in over 200 at The Robin. Last year was around 140 and last night was about 90. At 12.50, the tickets were cheaper than many tribute band gigs...I'm not sure how much longer they will be playing, with audience numbers this low sad

They still put on a superb performance, including 2 new songs and those present gave them a great reception. Julie and I will be seeing them next Wednesday, at the Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, for 14 each.

I really and truly could not afford to go, Steve! I have spent two weeks living on next to no money and I have a busy May coming up gig wise, not to mention a car MoT! Still owe for my MK two nighter too!

There are other gigs I'd love to go to too, such as Roger Hodgson and that Made in Brum thing that's on tonight but I have to cut the cloth accordingly! Hey ho! undecided

Sorry Lesley,

I definitely wasn't criticising you for not going. Of course, we're all free to attend whatever gigs we choose to or can afford to. I just quoted your post to highlight that many more people who had seen them last year and the year before had not done so this time.

I think the problem with their gigs at The Robin is that they do very little promotion, beside their gig guide, website and flyers at the venue. When Stackridge play at theatres they tend to draw more people, possibly because it's advertised more widely, in the local press and posters in the town etc. Will be interesting to see how many are there in Shrewsbury, on Wednesday; so far they've already sold more than were at The Robin!

At least you thought about going and would have liked to wink

Sorry Steve! If I'd have known my car would get through the MoT for just 29.95 for the cost of the test, I'd might have considered going. Never mind! Just happy about the car at the moment!

It is such a shame that such a great band with so many great songs, don't draw a bigger crowd. They certainly deserve better acclaim than they get. There's no justice is there! undecided I really do hope to see Stackridge again at some point. smiley

Will do. cool

We have a blast at these shows, and she really rocks out to MMJ, and Jim solo. The only downside to rocking next to her on the rail is when she gets going that long hair could take an eye out! grin
