Fan Reviews:

Review by Martin Palmer
Just been to see Eric at Hampton Court on friday 9th June. As always excellent! Saw him also at Albert Hall 25 May. I’ll keep this short as to review the concert and set list is pointless just to say anther flawless performance. My reason for this email is to apologise to Eric and the rest of the band for the audience. I think at least 75% were of the corporate prawn sandwich brigade. The response from them was embarrassing, we had people near us with hands in laps politely applauding after each song and looking as if they had never heard a song by him. If I had been Eric I wouldn’t have bothered with the encore. Even then when he came back out people were sitting down. I suppose if you charge £150 for a ticket this is what you get. So lesson learnt. I look forward to next tour but won’t visit Hampton Court again if Eric is there. I like to sit with people that aren’t dead from the neck up and are true fans!

Where’s Eric!
