18.Mar.1999 Heaven 17 at the Sound Republic in Leicester Square, London

Some remarks from Claire:
...They did all the old stuff, Temptation, Let Me Go, Come Live With Me, Facist Grove Thing (or was that thang?), Let's Make a Bomb and a really funky Play to Win. Some stuff I didn't know (but liked anyway) cos I STILL haven't bought to latest album. They closed (after Glen had a costume change) with Being Boiled and a surreal You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ which the audience murdered, karaoke style.
It was a great evening. Not quite as good as the Heaven gig in April 1997, but by far my best gig this year...

Concert review in German by Volker Büttner with a lot of photos included !!!

Stephen Budd:
The Sound Republic gig was filmed by the National Film and Television School and we expect the rough cut back in the next few weeks. This may be for a live video release.

10.Mar.1999 Appearance on the British National Lottery Show on BBC1 20.30 GMT

They did the remix of Temptation and they were (of course) excellent.

01.Mar.1999 Martyn Ware helped opening the Sheffield Music Centre

The Centre was opened officially on 1st March and there was an official opening track with apparently Phil Oakey and Babybird doing a duo type thing - old(er) Sheffield meets the new type of thing.

Help me to collect information about future plans of the band
