Topic: Greetings from Poole, Dorset

Good Evening all,

This is my first post on this Bonamassa forum.

I've been a fan of Joe's since 2012 and then after seeing him 'Live' in 2013 I've have been hooked ever since. I'm also a huge Mark Knopfler fan too having followed MK since 1985 and have seen him Live numerous times and have been lucky enough to meet him too..

I'm now looking forward to watching Joe on the 20th September having bought the VIP package.

Of note is that where I live here in Poole, Dorset UK was the home of Mr Kyps where Joe played his first ever UK gig in May 2005!
Incidentally Mr Kyps was actually my old middle school so my claim to fame is that Joe played my old School hall!!!

Hello fellow UK fan! I’ll be watching the 20th September show too and looking out for myself in the audience ha ha :-)

That’s interesting about Mr Kyps being your old school hall! I never knew that’s what it used to be.

Hi Ross,

Great concert last night and I found my 'cut out' in the audience!! Did you find yours?

St Peter's school which became Mr Kyps was founded in 1833. I attended there in the early to mid eighties and yes have very fond memories. Alas Mr Kyps is now gone and the place has turned into a residential establishment...
Best Wishes
Steve
