I just got in at 3am this morning and I'll be relaying the story of the entire "Wholigans Madness" tour over the next few days along with photographs (be sure to send me some photo's of the shows you came to) theband@thewholigans.com

It's best if you upload them to a site such as http://smg.photobucket.com/ and then send them as to avoid filling my mailbox.

The collage photo from the convention was sent to me from Louise Göransson who came over from Sweden..

Barry;

I am sending the pictures I have to you. Most are from somewhat of a distance since I was watching your set from the balcony. I also have a photo of you side stage just prior to Roger approaching you also at a distance as I was in front of the stage directly in front of Bruce Foxton's mike stand. Not the greatest but at least you will have it.

Just wanted to let you know I thought you guys were great, thanks for making my first time so special! ha ha ha

Barry,
The picture of the Wholigans with Simon wrapped in the flag is priceless. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time and tour.
