It was standing room only at the Market pub on New Square with fans crammed in to see them bow out in style after 25 years.

The band played two sets, with the Stones’ Honky Tonk Women and Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark just two of the standout tracks.

The night ended with an emotional rendition of the Beatles’ Hey Jude.

“We’re really going to miss these guys, is to early to mention reunions?”

From everyone at the Derbyshire Times, thanks for an amazing night and for 25 years of memories.
