An Evening With Luke Haines Tickets
AN EVENING WITH LUKE HAINES
Brighton Railway Club, Brighton
Rated 5 out of 5 by StevieMitch from The wonderful Mr Luke Haines - not there? You don't know what you missed!! A great, intimate gig with just 30 people or so in attendance. There was room for plenty more, so what a missed opportunity to see a superb performance from Luke Haines, dipping into his catalogue of superb songs from the Auteurs, Black Box Recorder, Baader Meinhoff Gang and his more recent solo material. Superb guitar playing and singing throughout, very engaging conversations with the audience. And a reading from Chapter 24 of his autobiography, describing the perils of potential libel when relaying an encounter with Chris Evans on TFI Friday, the invitation of bar small talk with a "Drink..?" and later the suggestion, excitedly delivered by his manager, that if a certain single were released then they'd be welcome back. "Drink?" The temptation to sell his soul deftly navigated with a sneering "F### Off , you ####" The glee with which this was read!!!! Hysterical!! And then, after a little light refreshment from the glass of red on hand, back to that superb catalogue of songs. Such is his talent that he really deserved to seen and heard by more tonight, but I'm not sure he cares too much about that... We were not troubled by a merchandise stall at any stage of the proceedings.
