Show Day: Arnhem - Gelredome, Show Two
Party night. A joint effort on the part of the catering and wardrobe departments resulted in the long anticipated "Dog's Bollix" wig party after the show. Did someone say "wig"? Why yes indeed. The wearing of them was far from compulsory, but there was a great turn out from the sublime (Tanya's knee length 'Lady Godiva' number) to the ridiculous (Scratch's rubber Mohawk) on to the inventively improvised (Susan's "Cleopatra" number made entirely out of backstage pass lanyards) ending at the disturbingly surreal (Stuart tying a small stuffed hedgehog to his head).

There was drinking, there was dancing and much fun was had. The highlight? Probably when Kellis's band took the floor and did this 20 minute 'Soul Train' spectacular. You go girls.
