We went to the Manchester Apollo last night to the War Child charity event starring Keane. They were as good as ever but they had to cut it short - the singer had flu and although he started off full of life, by 10.30 he couldn't stand and had to do a couple of numbers sitting down - anyway we all appreciated him being there at all - especially after the disappointment of Sting calling his Manchester gigs off. The compere came on in a Hallowe'en outfit with a large Peter Kay mask in front of his face. He came on again later in the show and removed the mask - it WAS the man himself - what a brilliant surprise. He did a ten-minute stand-up slot which was hillarious even though he was obviously just making it up as he went along.
