any idea of stage times for the gig... or a pub before hand?

We will be out and about all day, so it could be a dangerous day!

From previous times being in the borderline.
The price of your drinks went up by the hour,Or as the night went on,So if you got in early they sold large pitcher of beer priced ok, and then they seeming pricey or maybe I drunk to much by the end of the night and you could stay on for the club night after the show.Bit of a blur really.
Could be all different now.
I am getting old now.

Plenty of good pubs nearby, and plenty of bad ones too.
I recommend the blue posts (5/10 minute walk, just off oxford street). its a good sam smiths pub, so good and cheap.
Also the Angel is much closer and also a Sam smiths, but is quite small.

Big wetherspoons nearby also if you like curry from a bag and a carling.

As usual The franks did not disappoint! Following an afternoon on the beers in covent garden it was great to get to the venue in time to see The Would be's and also to see lots of familiar faces in the crowd. Fair play to all those who came over from Cork including Simon and Peter. Couple of the usual attendees could not make this gig(you know who you are and you were missed down in the mush pit!).

18 songs on the set-list (see franks facebook page for full setlist) encore of Time we said good night and Tony Cochrane finished 10 mins AFTER the curfew so well done lads for squeezing a couple of extra tunes in.

The lads continue to have a strong Irish and British following in London and it was great to see the merch stall mobbed after the gig!

Bring on 2014 with plenty more gigs hopefully in the pipeline!

Great gig... The boys were on fire!
We had a hell of a day beforehand, lucky to get to the gig at all. Too many good pubs in London!
Great to meet Simon and Rob...And Ash and the lads afterwards.

Venue was similar to The Pav in Cork, probably closer to Sir Henrys to be honest! And my shoes have the 'Sir Henrys' black gunk on them from dancing up the front too...
Home to Cork late last night, still recovering.

First Franks gig for me since the Anson Rooms, Bristol in '92. One of the best I've ever been to and we do a few. What made it for me apart from the band was the crowd. Met some really great people (Keith from Warwick and Dave from Twyford) are two I can remember.

Will make sure it's not 21 years until the next one and now have a back catalogue to catch up with. Can't wait.

Dave/John it's nearly the same name :D Was a fantastic night and we're just waiting for dates now so our paths will cross sooner rather than later. Just been buying up the back catalogue for all the years we missed out on.

Happy new year to you and all Franks fans.
