Old Vic postponement announced...but listen to this...
« on: April 16, 2020, 11:11:22 am »
Just had an email confirming postponement (not cancellation) of Local Hero - no new dates at this stage. But there’s a link to a recording of one of the songs with Mark and his band performing (though not singing!). Definitely worth a listen:-

Strange to hear the new MK song sung by not him, but so cool! Thanks for the link.

Those who were (or listened to the audience recording) know that this song was sung at the stage by Stella, this recording feautures Mac singing instead...

This could mean two things, this recording is a demo previous to the Edinburgh perfomances and they changed who sings it to the stage, or this recording is new, and this is one of the changes Guy mentioned for the London run...

However, is great that the recording features MK and the band!
You might get lucky, now and then

Intriguingly, this song was sung by the girl in Edinburgh.

Love it, from the melody, to the guitar playing.

First snippet is just Every Heart In The Room.

Is this the usual MK band we're hearing (maybe minus the US folks)? The drummer sounds like Ianto?
