Black and Blue tour- a fan's perspective

Black and Blue in Brighton

Saturday the 26th saw the final gig on the band's Black and Blue tour at Manchester Academy. It had been a very successful tour all round. There had been larger audiences, an energetic and enthusiastic band and a radical change of set with many old classics unearthed for the first time in years.

Familiar face, Colin Mace, was lucky enough to go to every date and has kindly provided us with a day-to-day diary of the seventeen gig jaunt around England and Scotland.

The Nice affair revisited

Jet has been working for the past few years researching Seven days in Niceand writing his new book Seven Days In Nice in which he now discloses the more sinister elements to his original piece on the subject back in the summer of 1980. We feel that, in light of the new information, much of it obtained with great difficulty, this completely revised and re-written account of the Nice affair, is likely to go down in Rock lore as one of the most sensational stories in musical history, Rock or otherwise.

It is hoped that the book will be on sale at some point during the UK tour and we will be interviewing Jet about this infamous chain of events very soon...
