Club chairman Chris Hough said: “It is so lovely to see live music again. There just is not any substitute. You can listen on the best HiFi. But you just miss the real spark of the music, the real sense of live performance, the fact that it’s happening now. There is a lot more that is going on that you are not aware of if you are just listening on a HiFi, things that you have to be there to actually see and appreciate. You can get great sound at home, but it just cannot be the same. But it is also that great shared experience with other people in the same room at the same time and also the great relationship that the whole thing creates between the audience and the artist. It is something that is happening in the room and that you are all sharing together, and that’s what makes it so special – whether you are listening to Schumann or you are lucky enough to be listening to Bruce Springsteen! There is just something about being together that creates such a thrill.”
