Well that was exhausting, I’m glad I did the tour but I think I need a long rest now. To answer a few questions-I’d thought I would never film the show and I didn’t this time and I always thought I didn’t like that idea that you threw your entire show away after a year or two but now maybe I will remount this show next year, do maybe ten dates, hopefully including Liverpool, and film it at some point then release a DVD and then start again with a whole different set. We’ll see.
Somebody asked about touring Australia, which I used to do, but I think that this show is so much about UK politics and class that I can’t see that a lot of it would work outside Britain. I don’t know maybe I’ll go through it at some point and see what would work outside the UK and what wouldn’t.
I agree that a DVD can never really capture the experience of attending a gig but perhaps it can go some of the way to evoking the performance on the night.
If I do make one I certainly won't make the mistake that I made with the "Alexei Sayle Pirate Video". My manager at the time, a somewhat wayward character, had the brilliant idea of putting the VHS not in the conventional box but in a paper bag so apparently replicating a pirated vinyl record. In the few shops that chose to stock the video it would constantly fall on the floor due to the paper bag.
