Quireboys - Saturday 19th December - O2 Academy, Sheffield

The last gig of 2009 for me and a night away in Sheffield. Richard and I had been seeing Quo in Brighton when the Quireboys played London, so in the absence of any Thunder Christmas shows this year, we took a weekend break to Yorkshire. This meant the (freezing) delights of Leeds United (baaa!) v Southampton at Elland Road earlier in the day and an evening of classic rock in the evening.

We caught the end of Wolfsbane's set and positioned ourselves for the main event. The QB's were on top form, ripping through the whole of their classic 1989/90 debut album "A Bit of What You Fancy" and numerous other fan favourites. This is one band I am happy to see time and time again.

Rather predictably having visited a few bars on the way home and with the best intentions of calling it a night, in true Quireboys fashion we found the hotel bar open. This meant an "early night" of around 3am. Eeek!
