As Woody declared when he was given a special “Aylesbury hero” award (I’m not sure that was the correct title of the award, but it was something along those lines). He, Tony Visconti, and the rest of Holy Holy were awarded it.
It was a fabulous night. It wasn’t without a hitch, but that’s live music for you. I absolutely loved it. Sang my heart out to every song…danced and stomped my feet away in my seat.
The OH wasn’t best pleased when they started with Width Of A Circle. Lol. She can’t stand the song. I think it’s a heavy prog rock epic! And it was a stunning version.
They then proceeded to perform all of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, from start to finish, track by track. Glenn Gregory fluffed the lines on Star, so they stopped completely and started the song again.
There were then songs from Hunky Dory and other tracks from The Man Who Sold The World performed. And the final song was Heroes.
I just sang and sang. I was in heaven. Didn’t want it to end!
Woody gave a little speech at the end, and then was surprised by his award. It was so lovely. It felt really special. The crowd were great, really feeding off the band. There was a lot of love in the room.
Wonderful. A wonderful time.
