Navigation for Matinee Idle

Phil O’Brien and Simon Morris throw toys out of their cots to celebrate Labour Day.

Simon says while nothing’s set in concrete... things are shaping up well for their upcoming gig.

“All I can tell you is we’re featuring a special on the late Clarence Clemons, Bruce Springsteen’s sax-player. And, off the back of that, we’re likely to be playing a lot of tough, East Coast, blue collar Noo Joisey rawk and roll!

“It’ll be sopranos, but no sign of Kiri Te Kanawa…!"
