Level 42 30th Anniversary Tour

I've got my fingers crossed for the Level 42 30th Anniversary tour gig in Aberdeen in October.
If it comes off, I will be shooting for the major L42 fanzine forevernow.com run by Carl Mueller.

During my bass playing days, Mark King was a major influence and I saw the band a number of times from their original line up with the Goulds through to Mark Kings' solo band before he re-attained rights to the Level 42 name.

Mike Lindup is now back on keyboard duties, so I am looking forward to the gig even more!

I played in a band in the mid eighties called 5th Gear, who covered a number of Level 42 hits including:

Love Games
The Chinese Way
Something About You
Hot Water
Micro Kid

and many more.

The credentials are looking promising, having touched base with their management.
It's all down to the tour manager a few days before the gig and who else will be requesting credentials.

Fanzines are a great way to get a foot in the door when seeking credentials and I have picked the smaller, northern most gig of the Scottish leg of the tour to increase my chances.

If you are a Level 42 fan, visit Carls' site at www.forevernow.com  for tons of great resources.

You will see my banner on the front page too!
