Hi from Biff

Did the last show of Call To Arms world tour on Tuesday. Last Night went to see Rock of Ages in London. Fantastic show. All of the cast were on top form – the singing was spot on. Hats off to them all, every night plus matinees is hard-core. Went backstage to meet the cast and got to meet up with Justin Lee Collins. I didn't know he could sing and dance so well.

Anyway a good night was had and you should go and see the show - it puts you right back in the eighties and I should know - I was there!



Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
