I may well go!  First saw Hillage in 78 (with National Health supporting), then twice in 79 and then he disappeared!  Had to wait until 1991 when I saw he was appearing with The Orb at Brixton Fridge.  Strange night - as you got nearer the stage you saw more and more what appeared to be Hillage fans - his first live appearance in a long time.  Then came System 7 but glad he is doing this again.

i saw him back in 79 then i think he just wanted to be a producer for a bit. Saw him with Gong when they (kind of) reformed and he did a solo set as support which was the first time he'd done any of his old stuff and it went down a storm. Saw him twice before Covid (London & Bristol) and it was stonking! Had tickets for Exeter which was cancelled due to Covid and i thought that would be it but now he's rescheduled i'm over the moon!
