Blues Brothers On Tour

I know it’s a few weeks away and the way we are playing, it’s more likely to be a funeral than a festival fancy dress away day at Preston … but the lads from MIB/KRO/SHA/J&S etc have picked a theme for the Preston game. If you don’t mind us being so bold!
It’s great to see the inventiveness and variety of Bluenoses at our traditional last away game fancy dress. Who can forget the Gorillas/Batmans and Robins/Elvis impersonators/Nurses outfits/Ninja Turtles etc but in the words of Martin Luther King … I have a dream!
As it stands we have about 2,000 tickets allocated to us at Preston North End. How good would it look if we all turned up in the same gear?
Dig out your black funeral suit and tie (we might need it the way the team are playing) get a pair of dark glasses and a black trilby from any charity shop and we will be ready for the biggest Blues Brothers party ever. Get the only suit you will ever need, get ready to do the silly John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd dance, get your old soul records and CD’s out.
We are the ‘real’ Blues Brothers, come rain, hail, sleet, snow, thick and thin we support ‘our’ team – The Blues.
‘It’s 109 miles to Preston, we’ve got a full tank of gas, four cans of beer, it’s dark and we are wearing sunglasses. HIT IT!’
