"With a mix of old and new, I think what made Hugh such a personable experience is that it almost felt as if it wasn’t a concert at all – more of a jam session. It didn’t feel like it was pre-planned or to a set list – it just felt like musicians doing what they do best."

All musicians taking part have been inspired by 18 month old local boy Dominic Halliwell, who recovered from a rare form of cancer. At only 10 weeks old he was diagnosed with a film of malignant tumour cells that cover his brain, and spinal cord and has endured months of surgeries and pioneering chemotherapy treatment.

"Um dos momentos mais esperados do dia era os The Stranglers. O grupo inglês regressou passados 32 anos ao mítico espaço do Vilar de Mouros, o único repetente de 71 foi o José Cid. O concerto cheio de êxitos da banda, foi um dos mais aclamados da noite, revelando que a música é geracional. Os êxitos Golden Brown e Always the Sun foram fortemente entoados, tocados a meio do set o que fortificaram ainda mais o concerto de uma parca hora."
"The Stranglers stand out from Saturday’s main stage line-up for several reasons; they are all decked out from head to toe in black and at least one of them is nearly three times the age of the average T performer."
"What I would really miss is Jean Jacques Burnel’s bass lines and presence and Dave Greenfield’s unique keyboard playing but thankfully they are still very present. It just wouldn’t be The Stranglers without these two."
