Kula Shaker at Alexandra Palace Theatre, Friday, 8th of July 2022

It was July 2022, the first day of a small heat wave, and time to venture back to Alexandra Palace for of the best gigs of the year.

Pet Shop Boys at the O2, Sunday, 22nd of May 2022

Two years had passed since this gig was supposed to take place in May 2020. A whopping two years and 8 months had come and gone since I actually bought the ticket. I am pretty sure that this gig marked the longest COVID delay of my gigging life, and in a particularly happy landmark, it was my final gig that had been booked in pre-COVID times.
