Will be playing at the open air theatre in Paloma park Benalmadena on monday 28th August at 10 pm, admission costs just 12 euros, we went last year and I can recomend it for a good night out, they play all kinds of music, take a cushion to sit on as its hard on the bum.

We went last year and this year too. Both nights were terrific, although the first 15 minutes this year were accompanied by the applause from the Dolphin Show. Next year is booked for the main RAF band - should be even better - tickets from RAFA in Benalmadena. If anyone needs contact info, please post.

We have been the last two years and it is a superb concert. Book early as it has been full both years. PS Curato: I don't think you are allowed to write bum on this forum, I am surprised admain missed it. Perhaps it is now considered innocuous, and so it should be. You can also book with RAFA who have a stall at Mijas Pueblo on Mijas International Day on Saturday. The whole day is worth a visit - food, drinks, and entertainers from all over the world.

Just had a call from RAFA chairman- concert cancelled as band marooned in Gibraltar, with no hope of entry. Chairman is trying to contact all ticket holders for full refund. D**n - it would have been a great night. :cry:

I was told that someone at the MOD in London did not apply to the spanish authorities for clearance to allow the band to enter Spain as they are a military force, there will be an enquiry into it in London, sadly the concert will not be until next year, seems a c--k up to me, it wonders me how they run the country, or do they ???
