Sorry, you guys got messed up there.

Its Birmingham, Alabama. Over here in the US.

Yeah, they're in Newcaste on the 25th, then quickly jump a plane and head to Birmingham AL for the signing then jump on the redeye so they can get back to BOURNEMOUTH on the 27th.

Lol, just kidding.

Sorry I'm just bitter Steve isn't in Sunny British Columbia right now. I'll just win the lotto and join you guys over there.

That's pretty sweet :D

I'd imagine that if Steve and Joe would go anywhere in Birmingham to sign stuff, it would be PMT, as it's meant to be the biggest music place in Europe...

Unfortunatley, it's not. The NEC is quite a long way from the city center for a start...the NEC is definatley not within walking distance from the city center. PMT is fairly close to the Birmingham City football club - again, it's not that close but it's the closest landmark to it. Sometimes PMT is under the name 'House of Drums' or something like that. If you get a train to Birmingham International, this actually takes you into the NEC (It's part of the NEC itself), and if you get the train to Birmingham New Street, you are in the city center. If you're getting a train, I'd go to New Street and get a taxi from there. It shouldn't be too much but it might help if you took a map with you, or at least the address. I remember looking for PMT for the first time a few years ago and I had trouble finding it, but you can't miss it when you do find it. It's just off a roundabout.
