I think it is already on the red button via normal TV.

Overall enjoyed it, could have done without that version of Left To My Own Devices and Being Boring needed to be in there.

Thanks Kiran

Will commandeer the remote tomorrow evening to watch it...kids and Mrs can eye roll me all they want.

Yip that acid drop remix of Devices works better on earphones than in a concert setting I feel

Thanks for the link! Olly looks fabulous. But I think his mic needed more volume. Dreamland is a great pop song!

Levels were too low for sure. Shame.

Oh, I love that version of Devices live.
Generally, the updates are needed to keep things interesting.

We had a really great time. It flowed really well. Only Go West jarred a little for me but the crowd loved it. I don't think Neil likes singing it, and it tells. I thought Beverley was a great choice. Loved Burn and It's a Sin. Olly looked really proud to be up there with them and he looked fab. I think Dreamland really works and it is incredibly catchy. Great time to be a fan.

I don't post on here often so I shouldn't really comment but I was offended by that 'too gay' post earlier. What the? I'm a straight mother of two but I really didn't like it.

I say YUK to you and your comment!

What are you doing on this forum? Go find one that celebrates bigotry... that's where you belong.

Why bother taking offence on someone's behalf, they probably don't care, but you're in tears, poor snowflake.

I think camp is the more appropriate word, and I don't think saying ''too gay'' is offensive. No probs telling a bloke* he's too macho

* bloke is slang for a male, which is a gender that isn't female.

Ha ha! Poor Neil coming in too early for the second verse of Domino Dancing 'I thought that...was pretty good'.

What a great performance! Neil was on fine form, and it was good to see Chris crack a few smiles. I'm jealous of those of you that were there. (I watched it from the comfort of my sofa on BBC4.) Did anyone watch the TOTP PSB performances on BBC4 after the concert? Can't believe their "Can you forgive her?" appearance wasn't in there!

The "too gay" comment is quite absurd, in my opinion. It's just as absurd as stating that Status Quo were "too straight".
