Billy Joel Concert

On June 16th we went to Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester to see Billy Joel. My husband was so looking forward to this he’s one of his favourite artists

The concert started badly Billy Joel was singing every other artists songs apart from his own. It was all seated but everyone decided to stand up so with my health problems it meant I saw little if any of the concert 😦

The people in front of me should probably have just got a room they were backwards and forwards for drinks and just groping each other the whole time 😦

Some songs were missing. It eventually he did do quite a few of his wonderful hits

The Rolling Stones at Old Trafford

The beginning of June , the 5th to be exact saw us attending The Rolling Stones No Filter Tour at Old Trafford ….. it was AMAZING, I will never ever forget this night , how these guys in their 70’s can have such energy just amazes me, and before anyone says DRUGS nope they have been drug free for 3 decades

In fact Mick works out for 6 hours a day 3 days a week he still has a 30 inch waist and his voice is still amazing!! In fact I believe the gig could be heard up to 8 miles away

Totally totally the best concert I have ever been to

The support to the Rolling Stones was Richard Ashcroft ( I’ll talk about this in another posting )

Gary Barlow Concert

Mid May saw us going to see Gary Barlow in concert, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go and got a few months we had the tickets for sale on Getmein, I am so glad we they didn’t sell, we had an amazing night it was a small venue and Gary Barlow had lost a lot of weight was very fit and the whole show just blasted energy from start to finish 10/10 Gary RED50-AUU1placeholder://placeholder://

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

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

 

Concerts Day 9

We’ve got tickets to see Neil Diamond next month I really can’t wait I seem to have loved him forever I know he’s old now but he still has that good voice.

We’ve seen a few people over the last few years…..but I think this one will be the best although my husband will say Lionel Richie was
