7.30pm: things may settle down for a while now as a three-course dinner is served. We’ll try and get some pictures of food. Just spotted Zakk Wylde, Eric Idle, Joe Perry, Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne. This could get quite nasty.
7.24pm: we dive inside, and it’s started without us. Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts are live on stage, providing an extremely rocking start to the show.
7.08pm. Holy Crap. Dr Brian May, Greg Allman, Sammy Hagar and Shep Gordon have all arrived at once. Panic stations
