I just won two tickets from a NY radio station to see Mick Hucknall and the band playing for a small audience (100 people) in a Manhattan club.

You guys don't know how exciting this is. I've never won anything in my life, and I was very dissapointed that Simply Red wasn't touring the States to promote their the latest album 'Stay'.
The funny thing is that me and my girlfriend were thinking of making the trip to Toronto just to see the band, but looks like we won't have to spend a single penny.

I hope he gets to play a normal set list of songs, but considering that is a free show it might be shorter.

Congrats, Jingles! I hope you'll have the time of your life. A very priviliged gig indeed. It's not my kind of music, but I can see what you like about it. Enjoy!

EDIT: Oh, and what club would that be, btw?

No idea. I'm thinking that it might be a sort of studio rather than a club.

i could do but i wont.if you use your imagination you wont be wrong :-]
what i will say is the girlfriend looked like a young helen hunt and we were young and adventurous,which helped when there was 70,000 watching us :-]
mind you someone kept hitting me on the head with a plastic bottle trying to stop us
and for that alone Stars remains one of my fave albums

LOL! I personally don't go past foggy windows in a car when it comes to Public Displays of Affection.

Now 70,000 people!! I bow down to you!!

Congrats Mr Jingles hope you have a great time, personally I think they are terrible on the ears and I would rather sandpaper my eyelids off than go to see Mick the prick but well done it is nice to win a competition.

Hehe! I know Mick can be a twat. I mean, when someone wastes so much money having a ruby incrusted on his teeth, you realize that they're run out of ideas on what to spend their money on.

I still enjoy the music though.

I love Simply Red, in fact i think its my second favourite after Queen, but the Mick guy is and always was giving me the creeps :S
Anyway, congrats and have fun!

It all went downhill from Stars, which was an amazing album but theyve never been the same since.

I always thought 'Stars' was overated. Great hit singles, but as an overall album I find it lacking what the previous ones had.
