What a nice idea.  I love her compositions.  If they decide to release the recordings of these shows, I would buy it.

That's such a great thing though for them to do. I would love to hear/ see recordings too if they release something from it.
Sooooo wish I could go! Sadly I'll likely never be able to see these artists perform here in the US Cry

The fact that we'll never see this in America is one of the many reasons that America is a cultural backwater of tasteless tripe.  

We have to settle with our Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

UGH!   Angry

But hey, at least it gives us something to happily complain about.

Beiber is Canadian. I know the US is to blame for a lot, but don't try to pin that one on us. BTW, that reminds me when are we going to bomb Canada for sending Beiber here? That's a terrorist attack in my book.
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Wow.
What a brilliant idea - and beautiful gesture. Lindsay is missed.

Come November I genuinely hope I'll be able to swing by London. It's been ages anyway, and I love the city. I imagine it being slightly different from last time, but then again huge cities like that are always changing (which is why they're so interesting to me).
Maybe if I row to England it'll be cheaper...

I have tickets for the Huddersfield gig.  Personally, I can't wait for this.  I was lucky enough to see the Cow twice in 1977 and I never thought I would see them play together again.  Unlike almost another rock band, the concept is a good one - to pay tribute to the late Lindsay Cooper, so its not just a reunion for the sake of it.  News from Babel will perform live for the first time as well!  By 1977, John Greaves had left so I have not seen him with the Cow (although I did see him a year later with National Health, supporting Steve Hillage - a great night).  Dagmar performed in the February but when I saw them again in the October, she had retired from touring due to ill health.  Those two gigs are amongst my most treasured musical memories - I particularly remember them starting the second half of the first gig with 'Beautiful as the moon...' and believe it or not, the place was rocking!
