Yesterday we left the sunshine of Mallorca and flew to Newcastle for the first concert of our UK tour. The captain of our Easyjet flight informed us that owing to poor visibility in Newcastle, all our electronic items had to be turned off for final approach. Never heard that one before. Anyway, we were greeted by rain, fog and chilly temperatures, as we hunted for our rental car on the outer limits of the airport. The first concert at Lanchester went really well and tonight we play Newbiggin by the Sea. It might not look quite like the picture, as more rain is due later. But I am sure we will have a great evening.
