Did anyone go this weekend?

To be fair, Brown's singing voice isn't the best and that still showed; he did better than I thought he would though. In any case for the most part the crowd drowned him out so it wasn't all bad(!) The band are a still a very tight unit though.

I went on Saturday and it was carnage. Loads of 40-somethings trying to relive their youth and failing... Bodies everywhere :lol:

Wasn't there just. Reckon about 95% of the crowd had packed the kids off to the grandparents for the weekend and were having a big one. Not many looked capable of still having one and surviving. Had a great time though. Brown's voice didn't sound that bad, its all relative with him, from where we were at the back and have to say that I thought they sounded way better than I was expecting. Did seem to me like there were more than 75,000 people there.

Sounds like a retrobike national ride.

Given the mood on here at the moment, I should probably add that this was a joke, a humerous comment and not to be taken seriously. I have myself been on many retrobike rides and have seen very few 40-somethings, or bodies.
