For the Brits

I'm guessing he's not well known outside the UK, but couldn't help chuckle at this comparison from The Scotsman review of the Glasgow gig: ... -1-4613412

"Cooper has been peddling the same shtick for decades, but it’s never grown stale because his urge to entertain is so endearing. He’s an inveterate showman, the Ken Dodd of rock".

It was good to say hello to a few of the Sickthings in Leeds before I got to chuck the balloons. Me and my wife were lucky enough to get a private meet n'greet with Alice post show and Sheryl was still changing when we were taken in. It’s a huge credit to her that she seemed completely chilled about us invading her downtime. Thank god Alice isn’t married to Mariah Carey- we reckon we’d still be waiting to see him now!

Alice was, of course, his usual charming self. I feel very lucky that he's been my musical hero for 45 years,and not Gary Glitter or some grumpy sod like Van Morrison!

I liked this review, but they incorrectly claimed that nothing was played from Paranormal as we did get PP!

That's a polite request not an order
