#646: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Unfortunately, it has just been announced that the Nick Owen In Conversation With Roy Wood event at Birmingham Town Hall on Friday 31st January 2014 has been cancelled due to "unforeseen health issues" [an acute inner ear infection]. On the other hand, Nick Owen has confirmed to Yours Truly KJS this evening that his other Conversation with Roy Wood event at the Garrick Theatre, Lichfield on Wednesday 26th February is still going ahead, at the time of writing, thus:
Wednesday 26th February
Nick Owen In Conversation With Roy Wood, Lichfield Garrick Theatre
Tickets: £15.00 each [*plus booking fee]
"Roy Wood is one of the best known performers to emerge from the prodigious number of prolific musicians who've illuminated popular culture in the Midlands. Roy will be talking to broadcaster Nick Owen in this fascinating evening of stories, from performing at the Royal Albert Hall in front of Her Majesty the Queen to why he's never received a penny in royalties from one of his best known hits, "Flowers In The Rain". His anecdotes are compelling and what's more, he plays enough instruments to be able to create an orchestra almost on his own!"
