Enjoyable, but spoiled by a few niggles.
Niggle 1, event ticket advertised doors open 7 pm but kept waiting until 7.45.
Niggle 2, security searches banned us from taking a plastic bottle of water in to the event. Really? The average age of this particular audience must have been approximately 50 so we were unlikely to start rioting and throwing our water bottles around!!
Hue and Cry were excellent, seasoned professionals and very pleasant to meet & greet at the merch desk after their performance.
I don't think The Christians will be coming back to ULU anytime soon though.
Niggle 3, They put on the best show they possibly could but were plagued by poor sound, namely a really annoying whistle/hum through Gary Christian's mic, which the beleaguered sound technician was unable to correct
Well done to Gary and the band for carrying on in the face of adversity to give your best shot at satisfying your faithful fans, even though it was eminently clear that it was not that much fun for you. Even to the point of coming back on for your 'Harvest For The World' encore.

hue and cry
I grew up listening to the melodic, soulful and punchy music of Pat and Greg Kane aka Hue and Cry. I got the opportunity to see them 2 years ago supporting a woeful, past his sell by date, Paul Young. They were magnificent. I wish I'd left after their performance because, after them, Paul young didn't stand a chance. So when they to Wrexham again, I wasn't going to miss the chance to see them again. Once again, they were the support act, which I found bemusing? I cannot comment or review the Christians because I am not a fan and did not stay to watch them perform.
Hue and Cry deserve to be top billing and to bring their band along with them.
