Might be easier to go to the Leeds gig? Quite a few cheapish hotels nearby and the train fare ok if you book in advance, like now. Or try the Megabus?
Sounds daft, I know. But worth considering.

Fair enough, you gotta do what you're comfortable with

Why stay overnight? Why not just get another Private Taxi home after the gig? You would be using one the next day anyway.

Not if it is booked from that side originally, Miss Sparks said Private Taxi not Black Cab. If they did up the price still cheaper than a Hotel. Good point though Alex

Great record. Not normally a Sparks fan although I completely understand why people have liked them for so long but Hippo is pretty fantastic. I wish I had been a little more proactive and caught them on this tour, they look absolutely brilliant, great energy that you just don't see that often lately. I can't get the album out of my head, it has a certain sound about it that's infectious. One of the best of the year for sure. If they do record the show, count me in for a copy.
regards Topazy.
