So I lied

I said I wasn’t booking any more concerts for 2018 THEN it was announced Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are doing a farewell tour, well I couldn’t say no, could I?

AI became a fan of Frankie Valli from the film Grease when he sang Grease is the Word and just in case you need any reminders here are a couple of YouTube Videos

Work

Things have happened are happening with work that I can’t really talk about and that will be a massive posting in itself when things eventually get sorted

I could do without all the stress but having said that I have to stand up for myself and other people who might find themselves in the same situation as me

Trip to Birmingham

Our trip to see Neil Diamond was an overnight one, we left our home at 12.30 and we were in Birmingham by 3pm. We got a taxi from Birmingham International Station to the hotel ………………so ripped off, this man drove us about half a mile dropped us at a gate and charged us £5 said the hotel is there, we had such a long walk all around the hotel, not good for someone like me that can’t walk 😦

The hotel was okay dated and was in view of the Arena BUT you couldn’t walk there easily thankfully the hotel used it’s own taxi service and we found the next couple of taxis to be very friendly and reasonable, we will know if we ever return again

The hotel was packed out and the concert was packed out. I probably wouldn’t stay in the same hotel if I went there again, although we did manage to get a bar snack at 11pm which was delicious and not a bad price

Neil Diamond

We went to see Neil Diamond on Sunday at the Genting Arena Birmingham it was absolutely fabulous, amazing and all other words like that. If someone had told me a 76 year old man could perform on the stage for over 2 hours and sound the same as he did back in the 70’s and 80’s I would never have believed it , he was AMAZING

this isn’t my video but somebody else took this on Sunday night and this is my all time favourite song ….the first one I ever heard Neil Diamond sing and I fell in love with his voice
