    Can’t wait for the Shepherds Bush gig! Last time out I was at the Metropolis and I stayed in a very borderline B&B in Chiswick. This time I decided to push the boat out and stay in a very borderline B&B in Shephers Bush. Where but for Caravan would I tolerate bed-bugs and a free breakfast available too late to catch my train back to Bournemouth the next morning?

    It was an amazing concert. Sadly I had to leave early to catch a train back to Worthing so I missed the encore. I was so pleased they opened with Memory Lain as I think that track is a great opener for a gig. I pre ordered the cd and I sincerely hope that the live cd captured the great sound and atmosphere. Hopefully the guys will do another tour real soon.

    Just returned from the Holmfirth gig. Absolutely brilliant. The place was packed out. And as usual Caravan did not disapoint.This is the 57th time I’ve seen Caravan and they are just as refreshing now as when I seen them first in 1969. Ever…yone goes on about the early incarnation of Caravan. But then they had mediocre p.a. systems and poor amplification. I think today they have a fuller and more solid sound. So a good night was had by all. so keep up the great work lads and I’ll see you in Edinburgh.

    Just like to say how brilliant Caravan were at Empire O2 on 8th Oct I took my son and son in law they were probably the youngest there! but were blown away by Caravans performance as well.Having been a lifelong fan of Caravan since their humble beginnings I can only say that after many many times of seeing them live they are as good as ever. Looking forward to the next time in the land of grey and pink.
    Long live Caravan.
