Default The Streets, live at Barasti

I'm sure everyone who saw Stevie Wonder had a great time, some of my mates even met him.

But tell you what, The Streets were ****ing BRILLIANT! So much fun, jumping around on teh sand having fun, singing along and loads of good banter - I wish there was more gigs like this.

What a night.

I love the streets, if I wasn't on a tea total crusade to self destruction, I would have been for sure.

cold, was it outside then...? reckon they were a bit ambitious thinking they'd get 4,000 people, the corrs as a whole wouldn't pull that, they haven't done anything for years, have they...?

You would have loved it, it was brilliant - they're a 7 piece band now, all live smaples, guitars, drums etc, they were superb.

One of the best gigs I've seen here in 6 years.

Funny, relevant and irreverent, on the beach and brilliant music.

Loved it.
