This was my first Travis gig, and due to being a Travis virgin when booking the tickets (which were a birthday present xoD) we foolishly thought we would get seated tickets.
Dispite this minor error, the whole gig was fantastic, I'd been a Travis fan for many a year before hand and was awestruck. The guys were unbelieveable. Doves supporting were a great act, but I just couldn't listen due to being so excited about seeing "my boys" next.The lads came on, Fran was sporting a red and black stripey top (close to my heart being a member of the dennis family!) and dungarees, very gooood! With the arena being so big i couldnt see much of the other guys but what the hey, I could certainly hear them!! By the end of the night I was speechless and not just because I had sung along non stop, but because I was so amazed by seeing my all time favourite band live for the first time!
The Nottingham daily paper wasnt so impressed, the review wasnt great, but the way it was written made obvious the fact that the reporter never was and never had any intention of being a Travis fan, his loss eh?!?
An amazing night which I will remember for the rest of my life, WOW!
