As you may know my wife and I were at Earls Court in London to see the MPH07 show featuring TG's Hammond May and Clarkson.

Well we went and it was fantastic. I got an "I am the stig" T-shirt, sat in a Jaguar XKR convertable (mmmmmmmmmmmmmm) and the live show was both funny and spectacular.

I won't give too much away, but I have some pics if you want me to post them.

That was an absolutely brilliant show.
Rounded off a fabulous day with an absolutely brilliant episode of TG.
The audience participation bit was inspired!

So do you actually get a chance to meet any of them personally this time?

I think the platinum ticket includes backstage privilages.

I just got back from the NEC, hilarious. May kept farting, Jeremy kept swearing and Hammond was hilarious. Cant wait till next year and ROC. (p.s i have some blurry shots that are poor but an ok vid off Swift football?) And they locked a guy in a Peel P50 (cos he didnt see the show) Plus alot more hilarity!!!

EDIT: Also apart from the live show somewere in the classic car show, there was Wheeler Dealers live, were you could meet Edd Chine and Mike Brewer. They are restoring a car everyday and giving it away as a prize. Best thing was you could watch edd work on it as he commentated, he also had a camera on his head so you could see what he was doing. Fans of the show would agree this was really cool.

Brilliant! just downloading shots from yesterday's show using my new D40 (was being very careful with it :lol:). finally i can get some good clear shots. view from row C (seat 89) was great, lots of other people with cameras too. not going to give too much away in writing, but i'll upload some of my pics of the action in a very short while.

didn't see any FG logos but if any one wondered i was the on with the blue shirt, glasses and a D40 round my neck :D

^^ you must have been in the same show as me with May farting. he had something that disagreed with him the night before :lol:

i got some pics of the landies if anyone wants them :)

I got alot of good shots, i would of had more but the battery in my D40x was running out and i wanted to save as much as possible.

i went to the 6:30 show too, where they put the guy in the yellow shirt in the Peel and left him there :roflmao: that will teach him to miss TG

:lol: i'm sure someone will have a video of the whole thing somewhere. maybe we should put out an appeal to release the show on DVD :)

edit: now someone has posted after me i can admit that this was shameless a bump for people who haven't seen my pictures yet :D
