No, I wasn’t there. This is a tale passed on by a distant acquaintance. Apparently his GLW won tickets to the Dublin show on a weekend Radio Nova phone in. Then, as was the way with them, they had a bit of a family setback so they couldn’t set off for the midweek concert in good time. This resulted in them getting stuck in the traffic snarl-up caused by the mayhem of the massed anti-water charges protests!
OK, so they made it past the pinch-points but didn’t quite know where to park. They found undercover parking but had to walk/jog/canter at a rather stiff pace to get to the arena. Being December the weather was out in full force to get even with the anti-water charges protesters!! I mean, they don’t want to pay for the privilege so Mother Nature must have thought it only correct to give them a little more free! Pity Mother Nature couldn’t quite keep the other good folk from getting lashed as well.
OK… enough of that story. The two darlings made it to their seats just as the great man sang one of their favourite songs!
Come Talk To Me really got them into the mood of things… along with the massed crowds, for the place was packed to almost capacity. Soon they were immersed in the sound and light show extraordinaire!! They testified that they were absolutely thrilled and delighted to have been so fortunate to see the show.
Anyway, my acquaintances have asked me not to reveal their identity because the camera police wagged a big finger at them for having a bit of “professional looking equipment” that breached copyright rules. A BIG NO-NO!! So, after setting off merrily taking photos they toned down their act, only venturing to break copyright on the odd occasion. Needless to say, the fellow only passed on a few photos for me to show you.
I think you’ll have to agree with me… sitting soooo far away from the stage negated any thoughts of the photos being taken by a professional. You may also agree that even though they’re good they’re not quite of a resale quality!!
Anyway… they were even more thrilled the next day when they found out they’d only missed the first song. So, there you have it… a second-hand tale of a first-rate event. To add a little something… I’ll include a link to the set list of the Dublin show… you may even click on the little arrows to view each song!! Now, how’s that for breaking copyright regs??
Friday!! Whooppee… as always, don’t do what I wouldn’t!! Oh, OK… I’ll show you just one more photo… but please, don’t tell anyone!
