Although this was the first night, before the music started I just could not get excited. My mood was completely and utterly flat. I was even thinking that I may have wasted a hell of a lot of money on tickets, hotels, train fares and flights.
Luckily as soon as the lights went off, the music started and Carlos started singing, I was back on track and I loved every single second. My seat was level with the little stage (although at the other end of the aisle) and was brilliant! Sonia kept me entertained from the beginning and my arms were already developing bruises by the time Somewhere finished as she kept grabbing me!
I have to admit the concert passed by in a blur as we tried to guess which song was coming next, although I do admit to breathing a sigh of relief when Passera started - I can't help it, it is still one of my favourites. I remember being completely stunned by Hallelujah and then doubly so after Adagio. Simply magnificent! The audience's reaction to those two songs was incredible and I don't think the guys were expecting it.
Of course there was the PQTME incident! You know when you can see something is going to happen but you can do absolutely nothing about it?? Well I was watching Seb (I'm a Siren, I can't help it) and I could see he hadn't seen the screen. If I'd have been closer I would have shouted at him! So funny, bless him!
I adore BOTW and TID - fantastic! And Amazing Grace!
It was a wonderful night and left me convinced that all the money I've spent was well worth it!
Few photos now. There aren't many of David, sorry, but I'd forgotten that he doesn't keep still for long so he's a blur in most of them!Please don't crop my name off them or use them outside of this forum.
