I agree, though I think most of the gigs I've been to at the Purple Turtle have run over. It often puts me off going to shows there if I think I may have a problem getting home. Strangest was Sabaton in 2008 (link to review below). I understand they hadn't been told Intense had been added to the line-up locally so in order that they could make their ferry they made Intense go on last after they'd packed up the back line.

Ah, best I stick to my memories from 1988 then!
