Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott

Cannock Chase Forest, Staffordshire

Beautiful South have been my all-time favourite band for a long time. I just love Paul’s lyrics, melody and mixed with Jacqui voice it is just sublime

They played absolutely all the classics and their new brilliant songs. They just packed in the music on what was a damp evening, but one that did not dampen the spirits.

They truly are a band for everyone, and have a real personnel affiliation with their fans - we are all best friends at a Paul and Jacqui concert.

Rain, what rain :-)
