Mal Holmes OMDs drummer suffered a heart attack while playing in Canada last year, he is still recovering and can't play, therefore he was substituted by the very old but reliable tape machine "Winston"
Had no clue where you went or really why, so I went searching. Found a site telling of the concert. This led me to finding more about the museum. Beautiful building's. Then photos of the “Three Graces” made themselves known. Then had to look those up! The Royal Liver Building, Port of Liverpool Building and Cunard Building. Don't want to show you up, but I thought you might be interested in this photo. I would have loved seeing all this. Look at that museum!
Your shot of the Royal Liver Building shows how massive it must be!
Lovely pics, what a great spot for your hotel too, HW.
I've only been once, to see Muse in the Echo Arena which is right by there. The drive towards it along the waterfront with the iconic buildings right next to you is amazing. I'd love to go back one day and see it all during proper daylight. I'm with BSJ (situation normal there), I love a good buiding too.
And a nice intimate OMD gig, you lucky dab. Was the sound OK? Did you get a question answered?
I shall always remember that Echo Arena gig fondly, one of the few times I've actually been on the barrier, nearly killed me, nearly lost my top in the melee, should really be married to the guy behind me - we were welded together in the crush, it was brutally loud and dazzling, it was AMAZING!
So Liverpool gets a big thumbs up from me, thanks for sharing
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
The buildings and architecture along that whole piece of water front is lovely, just past the Museum is the Albert Dock which is a great place to visit, we had a nice meal in there. I was surprised, Liverpool would make a great place to visit for a long weekend even without a concert to go too
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
