NIK KERSHAW IN MANCHESTER
21st June 2005 - Review by Debs "CrazyKershawCollector"
Well that was amazing.
After being there most of the day and chatting to the rodies(only doing that gig) and the Century FM crew we were firstly informed that Nik was doing a press interview at Century and would then be coming straight over.
Me and Kathleen(hi) were already there and Sara,Daragh and Giles joined us.
The Century girl caught my eye and pointed to the door.I said Niks here and(sorry Sara) pushed my way past her to see! Leo walked in and i shouted 'hiya Leo',Nik walked in and everyone said to wait.On seeing Nik the second time i shouted 'hiya Nik want a beer?' He looked up smiled and said 'oh my god'.
As me and Kathleen had agreed to meet the others we left,and missed the sound check(1 song which Sara could't remember!
(Ed. It wasn't actually 1 song only and the one I could listen to was "Faces". Sara)
When we got back Nik was stood talking to Daragh,Giles and Sara.
He kindly answered questions and signed some stuff. I asked him if he realises what he does to us? and he said he's just a singer 'tell me where you want me to play and i'll play'.So i told him my address!
God bless him he was draged away by some woman who acted like his mother!
The gig was excellent.I've been to a lot and this was in the top 2.
He laughed and joked all the way through.I was at the front and i noticed he had the words to certain songs typed out.I said 'Nik do you really need the words?'His reply down the mike was 'Yes i need the f**king words, it's been a long f**king time!'
He met us for photos after the gig but not for long.His mother was there again!
I followed him outside and when they'd all got in the car i dutifully threw myself in front of it waving my arms like a mad looney!
That is one day i will Never forget.I can go to heaven happy now!
Yes he is doing a gig in Liverpool tonight but no details.
