I was at this one! really cool setup, basically they rented out the wonder wheel park so all the rides were free all night for the attendees, my date and I made out on the wonder wheel. There were like 3 short instrumental Maus compositions playing from all of the rides like the bumper cars and Himalaya etc. Also in Maus content there was a 10 minute video of John standing in front of various green screen locations playing out of some tvs but the audio was impossible to hear. Joe was kind enough to sell me a CD copy of Addendum and there's also a new t-shirt design. Superstar and Star was a pretty singular performance, really glad I got to see that. John and the band were great as always but we were unfortunately standing in a spot where there was constant foot traffic from behind the scenes people so our feet were constantly being stepped on during the show. Afterward John had to come offstage through the crowd and I heard the great exchange "GREAT SHOW JOHN!!!" "uhhh I hope so." Super cool thing, would love for them to do exactly the same event again.
Thanks Tim sounds great, i wish there were still ATP's in Minehead and that John had been asked to curate a weekend, that would have been terrific, imagine it, Maus curated Groups, TV channels, Cinema, over a whole weekend. Sadly it was all the brainchild of a genius with overly optimistic accounting. The two i managed to get to were brilliant. I hope something like them can come back, they were fun.
