Hi Alan,

  Well, we were mistaken about the booking origins of the concert but due to 
the fact that it occured a day after Tonic closed permanently and was listed 
as a "Tonic presents" show I think it was a leap that was understandably 
made. Our apologies. As far as referring to the "group", "project", 
"singer-song-writer" or "representative" is concerned, they are clearly all 
euphemisms for one man's artistic venture. Corwood's publicity "team" is no 
stranger to the curve-ball am I right?
Either way, nice work booking that show and we look forward to your future 
bookings and hope Tonic finds a new home asap.
