The Wheelwright’s Arms, Havant – Friday 30th March 2012

Best gig of the year so far? Good question, quite possibly.

Best gig since The Crush started? Difficult call on that one as we’ve had so many but as Pete said, it’s certainly in the top five.

We had a stonking night at The Wheelwright’s Arms in Havant on Friday 30th March.  The place was packed to start with and just got busier and busier as the night went on. Such a fantastic crowd.

And thank you so, so much to everyone who came up and spoke to us at the end of the night. We always value your opinion and really do use your feedback to make the band that much better.

This gig saw four new songs for us and in response to feedback we’ll now be highlighting those new songs in the gig write-ups (see below). Playing one new song at a gig is always fun, two new songs can be scary, three new songs; unheard of but four!! Four?!?!?!!? We really pushed the boat out and we’re glad we did.

We were asked for two encores so how could we refuse. Sadly time was against us otherwise we could have just kept playing and playing and playing……

For those that couldn’t make it, here’s what you missed:

In the morning
Wishing well
Money for nothing
Smoke on the water
All day and all of the night
Need your love
Long time coming
Midnight hour – New
I can’t explain
Brown eyes girl
The only thing that looks good on me is you – New
Slam the door
Somebody told me – New
The bartender and the thief

La grange
I want to break free
Mamma told me not to come
You really got me
Take me out
Long train running
Crazy little thing called love
Chelsea Dagger
Sex on Fire – New version (for us)
Teenage kicks
Summer of ’69
Mustang Sally
Sweet home Alabama
Can’t take my eyes off of you – Encore
Disco 2000 – Encore
