Mastertapes is mostly a Q+A with possibility of a few songs. Not a gig.

We're 3 songs in and the GBQs yet to appear.
Guess that means they'll prob only get one song tonight, and maybe another on Fri.
Shame, I thought they (or at least Damon) were big enough to be the main act...

They've just done Merrie Land. Not bad.
Full string section accompaniment.
Only Robin (Swedish pop lady) got to play two songs, expect we'll get another GBQ (maybe two more) on Fri.

Oh, used to be Friday night for the main show but looks like it's Saturday this week (well just after midnight so technically Sunday).
