The Hall Brothers; Terry & Albert

Yesterday's beautifully timed day off meant I was able to be at the Albert Hall to watch The Specials.

They were amazing. It's a big, happy sound and it properly fills a big venue like that.

Quite brilliant.

It was one of the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs. It's a really great cause. You can find out more about what they do and why it's important via their website. You can also donate. Obviously.

For the last few weeks, I've had Mondays and Tuesdays off - they've been my alternative weekends - but this week it was just the Monday. I'm off to Leicester tonight and finishing the tour in Llandudno tomorrow. There is the possibility that a few more dates will emerge later in the year - although nothing's certain - so all those people kindly guarding secrets... please continue to do so!

I'll spend Thursday travelling back to London from Llandudno. Then I'll have Friday off. We'll be back with the radio show on Sunday morning - and I won't be all wiped out by a late night after a Saturday gig - and then I'll be in the office at Genius HQ on Monday to start work on Series 2.

Excellent show, Dave. Would have liked to stop and say hello, but there was a big queue by the time we got downstairs. Much respect for everything that I've seen you do (from Are you Dave Gorman? onwards).

Have to say, the numbers were perfect!

Hi Dave

First saw you at Cheltenham on the Googlewhack Tour. Loved tonight in Leicester too.
It's such a change to have someone doing a full two hour show with such wit and intelligence, mind you a bit of Frankie Boyle is also great fun.
Thanks again Dave comedy gold

The Specials! Lucky you. I saw them on a ska tour in the early 80s. Fabulous. Did you see Jerry Dammers in the audience? I heard a very interesting interview with him on Front Row a few weeks ago. Bitter? Yes, very.
