Title: Leeds -first UK date: Sat 18th May 2019
Post by: Knopflerfan on November 16, 2018, 02:42:08 pm
I note that there of plenty of AMITers attending the first UK date at Leeds including Mr & Mrs Knopflerfan...
Maybe Superval may know somewhere where we could all meet for a pre-concert drinkie??

I think there's a Wetherspoon just round the corner from the venue.  They have no music so it would be a good place to chat.  Val would know best though (not that I'm saying she frequents public houses often)! ;D

 :lol      There's a place called Town Hall Tavern which is convenient for the arena - I haven't been there myself, but it has a good reputation.

Also Veritas, which I hear is very good:

Both are near the arena.  I will investigate nearer the time!     :wave

After a discussion on Wednesday in Edinburgh before we all went to the Musical, we decided to look for a venue  to meet up and if fellow AMITers wanted food it was available.

How about this one that Superval mentioned 'The Hedley Verity' It is after all 5mins away from the 'First Direct Arena'

Good :) I'm here anywhere anytime. I said this tour I'm gonna meet ALL my friends as many times as possible. Even  the chairman. 

I have have good news today . My three bosses (boss, wife and myself) seem happy with the idea of me adding a UK show.   
I may be heading down to Newcastle as well assuming there's a pre-show meeting full of beeeeeeers

Just in case anyone is interested in the name 'Hedley Verity' which is the name of the pub we are meeting at
As a keen cricket fan, it certainly interests me!!

Might also come, am with some friends who are not that MK geeks so will see what they say :). Anyway I worked hard at restricting myself and not looking at setlists or live videos - if we come, can I expect lots of spoilers?  ;D

Also anyone wants to get something signed by Mark? Do you know when and where is the best bet? I have my guitar and a sharpie  :D

Best of luck getting anything signed. Probably best to head to the arena mid afternoon and see up camp! Not aware any of us are seeking a signature, especially as some of us own one or two!! The Hedley Verity is a nice pub as we are in here having lunch...
