London 1997

(Me and Sharleen, London, Royal Albert Hall, 06/05/97)

I discovered the hit "I Don't Want A Lover" in a fast-food during holidays in Paris
a day of April 1989, and it was a shock !
Then I got the chance to go to see them live at the New Morning, 22/05/89
(it was their first concert outside UK).

So I came back in Paris in December for the gigs at La Cigale. I had to wait for 8 months when they played at the Eurockéennes Festival in Belfort in July 90 (I still have the T-Shirt), the show was excellent !

Since the Mothers Heaven Tour in 1992 I was at almost all the concerts in France, sometimes alone, sometimes with other fans.
In 1997 I had the chance to meet other cool French fans to follow the band everywhere !
The result of my Texasmania is 52 Texas concerts since 1989, a lot of beers, some nights sleeping in stations or in hotel halls, long hours of queueing, but always the same pleasure !!!
