Geoff Diggs's Comments
"I was surprised that the concert seemed to be going to proceed after Jimmy's accident - any head injury can't be taken lightly - so, unfortunately, the cancellation hasn't come as a huge surprise. All we can hope is that the injury isn't too serious and Jimmy makes a full recovery so he can return at a later date and hopefully include other venues. First Keith Richards leaves NZ after the Stones final concert in 2006 then falls out of a tree giving himself a head injury - now Jimmy isn't able to make it from his last Aussie show due to a head injury. Maybe Jimmy needs to bring the Jolly Mon out with him to help get rid of this curse to make it safe for everyone else who follows. (Parrotheads, if you don't know what I'm talking about get a copy of the CD/DVD set of Jimmy at Fenway Park, Boston.)"
"Hi Heyliskiwi - thanks for that - wear a grass skirt so I will recognise you."
"Hi Parrotheads - My wife and I are coming up for the concert (and party) from the South Island and have been trying to find out some info on Te Wero Island. Can any Parrothead out there please tell me if it is an indoor or outdoor venue. Appreciate the help."
"My wife & I (from the Christchurch area) would love to meet Jimmy & the Coral Reefers to thank them for being able to rock a venue better than our 7.1 quake. Finally after watching the DVD's and listening to the albums it's time to dress up and experience it all for ourselves."
