Steve Hackett at the Sage Gateshead, 17 May 2017

So here we are in Gateshead - last gig in the tour for me.

It's really very beautiful here at the Sage. "The grime on the Tyne is mine all mine..."

It is very noticeable not only that Steve has toned down his anti-Brexit, pro-immigration speech introducing songs from his new album (due to the negative reaction that he got from the Manchester audience), but it's also very noticeable that we are in a quite different country - in contrast to the Glasgow audience, the good people of Gateshead are firmly sat on their bahookies.
So off we go again - here's Steve, a few more of Nad (because of the angle of my seat, I could see more of him), and sorry, but there's lots of Nick.  Lots.  Oh dear.
