Can't believe it Colin. You must have the Greenbelt dvd.

If not, I will be selling it to you next time I see you !! 

Say what you like I think you're one in a million.

ATF played the big stage at GB in 2005, when they ran it for one afternoon only as an experiment to see if it would work "like in the olden days". They called it "North Stage".

I know cos I watched it from behind the mixing desk!

They then went over to the Christian Aid tent to play an unplugged set.

Yes I do have the DVD and yes they have played on Greenbelt stages since 1979!

Yes Paul they did play the North Stage and the Christian Aid tent.

As shown on the DVD they played Stage 2.

They also played the Performance Café, if an acoustic stage is called playing

Press Any Key with John and his brother Rob played Main Stage at Castle Ashby and Andy also played on the same stage that year if my memory is correct!

Also Peter and Rob sang The Outlaw on the Centaur Stage, a large indoor acoustic stage.

They were interviewed by Greenbelt Radio; I believe acoustic playing was broadcast!

(As Paul said North Stage was a try out. The Main Stage that year was undercover where there is now the skate park!)

If I have missed out any performances I am sorry and I'm sure I will be informed!

They still have not played as After the Fire on Main Stage since 1979!


Who's going to love you when your old and fat and ugly and everything about you's turning grey?
