This week saw the penultimate gig on The Works tour at the Everyman in Liverpool. The first thing I noticed on entering the City was that the Scousers had taken their European City of Culture 2008 win and started tearing up the streets of Liverpool. Such is the disruption that even locals can’t find their way around. We were all booked into the famous Adelphi Hotel (click on image on the right) but I simply could not find it. I found out later that I was actually driving round and round it but for now I had determined that if the road out of Liverpool presented itself on the next circuit I would take it. As it happened, the road out of Liverpool proved to be more elusive than the hotel and we kind of accidentally arrived there almost on time.
