Just got back from the concert at the nec-my first time seeing mark, got front row tickets right next to the stage which was great. Fantastic musicianship from mark and all the guys , every song was a highlight especially the slightly re-worked ones and the prolonged solos. only down points, not enough new material....could have done with at least another new song and the crowd who were totally appreciative and into it, but until the second encore wouldnt move out there seats. Got some great pictures as was stood in front of Mark for the encore literally 2 feet away which was a great way to finish off my night.cheers guys, will be back next time. took some pictures please find them at the link below!!!!!http://www.flickr.com/photos/26680607@N07
