NWE; Hello Mica. So…..Liverpool on Saturday….
MP; I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be wicked
NWE; When was the last time you played in Liverpool?
MP; I was only there last year with the ‘Love Me Tender’ tour. We stayed there for two weeks in the Liverpool Empire. I was on tour for 6 months, so you’re running around to different parts of the UK and it becomes a bit of a blur where you were. When I was in Liverpool with that show, the love we got there for that show was insane.
