Aftershow News: 23rd June 2018

Billy Idol + The Professionals live at Brixton Academy. After-show party from 10.45pm to 11.30pm. Around 70 or 80 guests are here in the backstage bar. It is a pay bar here. All The Professionals are here. Sex Pistols/Professionals drummer Paul Cook told me they were driving straight down to Isle of Wight Festival after as they were due on stage Sunday afternoon. Also here was Tony James who was in Generation X with Billy Idol. Billy Idol & band were doing meet & greet stuff in the dressing rooms area so not sure if they made it here...my sore throat & chesty cough were playing up so headed off home...
