#024: Aftershow passes for Luna's farewell show in London in 2005

Luna - Aftershow passes (2005-01-17)

Fifteen years ago tonight Luna played their last London show and today’s artefacts are mine and Hazel’s aftershow passes. Mine’s the better condition one as Hazel’s lived stuck inside her jacket for months - not for any close-to-her-heart-fan stuff but because it just was.

It was a perfect farewell: met up with a bunch of other fans; hung out (briefly) in the aftershow squash court; got interviewed for Tell Me Do You Miss Me (that thankfully ended up on the cutting room floor); and the show ended with Indian Summer which I’d seen the band play when they first came through London in 1992.

Off course most farewells aren’t farewells any more and Luna were back in London just over ten years later.

You can download the full show, and see pictures (including fat me ligging with the band), over here.

I thought I’d just go through some of the stuff I’ve acquired over the years and post about it here… how interesting the posts (and artefacts) are will undoubtedly vary!
