For concert reports, photos and videos

Please note the guidelines for the posting of photos: We are asking that you limit the number of pictures you post in each thread to 30 pictures. This will make it easier for people to scroll through the threads, plus those with slow connections will surely appreciate it, too. Any pictures over the allotted number will be deleted. So, choose carefully! wink.gif

If you wish to share more of your pictures, you can always post a link to the site where you have them posted (ie photobucket, etc.).

If you wish to share a press review of the night's performance, please post it HERE.

Most of all........ENJOY!!!!! biggrin.gif wink.gif

Oh my goodness, I've just had a handshake (and wink) from Carlos. wub.gif I feel like a dizzy school girl! laugh.gif I do have a couple of pics, but I took an old point and shoot for fear of having it confiscated. I'll be taking one of my better cameras tomorrow!

Hope everybody else enjoyed it!

Just got home from the concert --- FANTASTIC....!!!!
Crowd loved it and the guys really seemed to enjoy it too...lol smile.gif
There was also a note on the entrance to the Arena, saying it was being filmed...!!!yay

My favourite bits..
Impossible Dream
Power of Love
Adagio
Caruso
Loved the new stage, lighting and effects (also the huge chandelier...!!) wink.gif

It was supposed to finish at 21.50 but the guys left the stage at 22.20, to a standing ovation..
One of the best concerts i have been to in the past 4 years.

To everyone going to concerts soon you are going to love it. tongue.gif

Huge thanks to the guys again for a fab night. smile.gif

Hugs Cate

P.S
I have got some pics and a bit of audio, will see what they are like tomorrow before posting.
But i do know Taibhse has some fab pics and video.

I've been home from the concert for an hour but started to read the thread first!!! Boy you are a chatty crowd!!! (it takes one to know one!)

It was a wonderful evening for an Il Divo virgin. Yes Alex I'm not a virgin any longer. Your turn next weekend!!

I cannot remember them singing Nella...it's actually one of my favourites...they sang NIWS!!! most definately!!!

Seb was not the first person to go wrong. Are you listening Suzanne!!! it was the big guy DAVID who went to the wrong side of the stage near the beginning after they had their walk/run about...it will sure keep them fit!! A gauzy curtain came down and Seb found himself in the middle of it instead of the audience side of it!!! Then David entered by peeping around the other side of it....a lovely moment!!!

They definately sang Passera as I can still here Carlos ....'in Banca.'..

Sebbie appeared in the white jacket on the left and Urs then appeared on the right wearing a white waistcoat after they changed from the suits they wore in the opening set. I love Seb in that jacket but URS really suited the white waistcoat!! David looked a real American Boy in his and Carlos looked like Carlos...smart and suave in black!!

Don't worry about not seeing them. they really move around on this set so we all get to see everyone!!! For people whose dates are still to come I would suggest you get seats near the apron stage, the guys come down there quite a lot and you are really near them then. By the Way when they sang Amazing Grace in the final Encores there was no Bagpipes...obviously not cost effective to have a piper with them just for one number!!

EILAY was sung like the last tour version and Seb remembered to come in on time!!! They sat in a different order this time also. Good to see they are not sticking in a rut!! Tails were worn at the end!!!

Enough for now!! I'm off to bed..not slept much this last week... I'm there again tomorrow!!! Will fill in the gaps after that!!

I must thank Josie who sat next to me for including me in her party prior to the show in the View. Really enjoyed your company ladies.

Until tomorrow. Night Night

Irene
