Aftershow News: 21st December 2014

11.20pm to 12.30pm... The Cure live at Hammersmith Apollo,London. Over 100 folks here in the balcony bar. There are dj sounds in the background. Despite three sold out shows at this venue it is still a pay bar. Members of The Cure turn up here but Robert Smith stayed in the dressing room area while I was there. A nice party atmosphere vibe as we had a few celebs here including Professor Brian Cox who presents those BBC Science programmes.He had his own show here on Dec 18 and 19 and The Cure played four songs each night. Also here was Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran. Celeb make-up artist and mascara supporter Charlotte Tilbury who owns www.charlottetilbury.com. Also a couple of comedy folks who were Dom Joly from tv programme Trigger Happy and Karl Pilkington who had that tv series with his mate Ricky Gervais. A decent party that was due to finish at 1am but I departed at 12.30pm.
