This concert was part of a FM birthday bash held to raise funds for The Mercury Phoenix Trust. As this was unfortunately an event for the "C-lebrities", we don't know much about the performance and there are no audio or video recordings either which is a shame because the setlist was highly interesting! Please note Brian and Roger may not have played in ALL those tracks - this was just my assumption. All I know is that Brian and Roger played in *most* tracks, Spike was on keyboards and Neil Fairclough on bass...
