I remember being very happy that Wigan did not book Tavares.Russ reckons it was because the group didn't want to stay up halfway through the night to do a show. The Casino must have regretted missing out as we had 1700 plus in the Ritz that day..

How can you have an authentic celebration of that great club when the music that featured at that time will be played in the lesser of the two rooms?
