This was the first time Noel was to play with the band since he walked out in May.
The excitment levels were high and on my way to the gig I was driving though Howth (a little village in north Dublin) and I looked to my right hand side and saw someone who was the image of Noel but didn't think it was him. I looked again and realized that it was him. I could not believe it. I had a feeling that I may never get to see the band again after this gig and I have just seen Noel! I pulled in at the side of the road and got a pen and a tape cover of the tape I was listening to at the time and went over to him and asked him if I could trouble him for an autograph. He signed my tape cover (Philadelphia 9th March 1996) and I asked hime if he was looking forward to the gig tonight seeing as it could be the last in Dublin. He said he was really excited and it should be great. What a great start to the day!
The gig itself was amazing. The visuals were really well thought out. The seltist was as follows.....
