Cambridge Rock Festival 2014

As a further comment on the ‘alleged’ confusion which Andy Powell reckons the sometimes erroneous billing and even the very existence of ‘Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash’ has caused, we bought tickets to go to see Jack Bruce and his Big Blues Band at Leeds Grand Theatre in March.

We yesterday received their brochure, stating the support to be ‘Nick Lowe’.  On the face of it, an excellent choice but (on investigation) it isn’t ‘Nick’, it is actually ‘Nik’ Lowe. A totally different person.

So would I be entitled to a refund if I bought tickets in good faith as a Nick Lowe fan and found a different musician?  Interesting.
