Re: Driving Home For Christmas - Royalties

On Chris Rea's Facebook page there's an announcement about a "series of interviews" regarding his classic songs. In the first video he's providing the background information on how the "Driving Home For Christmas" song came about. https://www.facebook.com/ChrisReaOfficial/ Yeah, "Driving Home For Ch...

In the last couple of days Jan Akkerman played three gigs in Poland. He was at: 07.06.2018. Piekary Śląskie, Andaluzja 08.06.2018. Warszawa, Hybrydy 09.06.2018. Bydgoszcz, Kuźnia It was a real pleasure to see him here. I'm old enough to remember Jan from his "Focus" days. Every once in a while, thou...

Re: Road to Hell Vinyl remaster release

Some news at last! Just keep them coming to us, please.
I second that; "one day a complete anthology with all unreleased tracks", yes.
Continuous regards to all,

Re: Steiger Award 2018

Yeah, I've seen two pictures of him posing at his "police" car at the track on March 26, 2018. He looked to me just fine. I'm happy for him. Thank you Ann for posting the link. But still, I'm disappointed somehow because I would expect his management to issue a statement, or something similar, about...

Re: Steiger Award 2018

Nur Chris Rea hat kurzfristig abgesagt. „Krank“ sei der Mann, bedauert Moderator Werner Hansch. „Sehr krank.“

I'm so sorry to hear that. I was hopping he would be recuperating after his (probably short) stay at the hospital.
Anyway, I wish him all the best.

Re: The Tour 2017

Happy New Year, 2018, to everyone.
I was wondering if there's any information regarding Chris Rea's condition? Especially, whether he was released from the hospital?
I would like to hear he was home for Christmas and is recuperating from his illness just fine.

Sorry to hear that. I just hope it's nothing serious. Perhaps simple exhaustion.

Re: The Tour 2017

Thank you Andrew so much for sharing your impressions and for detailing all songs played. While reading your review I felt as if I was at the gig myself. Well done. I'm listening to the new CD every day and in addition I'm scanning the Youtube for all new videos from his concerts at different places...

Re: The Tour 2017

Yeah, accepting flowers, cheering with a young fan on stage, all these gestures are always well received, everywhere. Especially in Russia but I think in other places, too. Over here if an artist refuses to accept flowers it would be viewed as a rude behavior; at least as "not proper in the circumst...

Re: The Tour 2017

Tomorrow's the day, eh Andrew? I'm waiting for your impressions.
I presume the event was sold out well in advance and the tickets were not cheap either, right?
Have a great time.

Re: The Tour 2017

Thank you Andrew for sharing your insides as well as thought about Chris and his problems. I suspected all along he's in a difficult financial situation. That's why he had scheduled so many gigs in Germany alone. He wasn't ready to play for his fans in other places, I guess, because he had to concen...

Re: The Tour 2017

Hello Ann and all, I'm glad to hear the tour got to a good start in Amsterdam this past Saturday. I also wouldn't mind listening to all his 'old' songs, therefore I'm surprised he included this many new track from his newest album. There are already enough videos on YouTube to give anyone an idea ho...
