A concert review by Sarah Kendall:

Last night was just the BEST night ever!!!! Can you imagine how it feels to have your heros since the innocent age of 14 (?!) sing happy birthday to you?! WOW! There were a lot of tears shed last night as I could not believe my eyes or ears.
To all the SAILOR fans who came along and just made it such a memorable night - thank you! Thanks to everyone for
Sarahdressing up and partying on down - I couldn't have spent my birthday in the company of a nicer group of people! Hope you've all arrived back home safely today.
A number of people were videoing the act so I hope to be able to get hold of copies for people who are interested in replaying this tremendous occasion!
It's going to take me a long time to come down off this high! I couldn't sleep at all last night as my head was just still buzzing with it all!
Thanks to everyone for their birthday wishes, cards and gifts too - I'm still working my way through them all.
And also special thanks to the mystery "2BRUFS" - you know who you are and what you did!!! Both the band and I are absolutely chuffed to bits with these surprise gifts - tremendous!
Look forward to seeing you all again in High Wycome / Aylesbury in November (no, I won't be wearing that dress, or the boots....!!!!!)
Lots of love to you all,

Concert reviews from the fans:

Hi Gary here, just like to tell everyone how brilliant SAILOR were last night down in Newbury. I'm going to make sure it's not another 25 years before I see them again. They stayed around to talk to fans afterwards and brought back memories from the seventies. It was a joyfull night to remember.
