I'm not entirely sure I'd like to go and watch someone knowing they'll likely not be alive next year. :-(

Yes, those are my thoughts, but also, although I like his stuff, I`m not a major fan and probably wouldn`t have been going to see him on any other tour - unless he was supporting someone that I was into, like The Stranglers a couple of years ago - so I`m not going to go to this one, just because he`s dying. I`ll leave the tickets to those that are really into his work.

Well said Lozz, I'd only be going to see Norman if I went. I'll still be sorry to see him go though. A legend.

They need to find out exactly what Wilko is made of and use it for making tanks and battleships, because it's obviously indestructible.

Saw him at last years Bingley festival & me & my son danced to his energy.

I'm so glad that's not the last time I will see him. I'm well chuffed for him & his family

Astonishing isn't it? Fair play to that man - what an extraordinary story. I only hope that he's correct and the cancer doesn't return etc. As for now it's certainly an outcome none of us expected. Amazing!
