So an update on the concert. It was absolutely ace! Even if you weren’t a fan it was such a great show and unlike Britney every song was sung live! Regarding the show- I don’t like the circus, in fact I hate clowns (really) but these were different clowns, hence the pic. If I could go again right now I’d be gone like a shot.
This was the second time I’d seen them, the last time in Manchester was great but this was a different experience altogether. They played all the old classics, including a rain sequence for Back for Good. They mixed in tracks from The Circus album which I’d already downloaded so I could sing along. The atmosphere was wonderful- the audience was 95% screaming women so we fitted right in. The best song was of course Never Forget which without sounding like a sap made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. My favourite, Howard was also looking great very easy on the eye…..
The Script were also great, I kind of liked them before but now I am a confirmed fan and have been listening to them non-stop the last few days. I even let out a little squeal when I saw them on BNTM on Monday.
The only slight bummers were that the sun was so strong at the start of the night that even though I had suncream on I ended up with a slight farmer tan (fetching!)and also when we left the stadium we asked a Guard for directions and he sent us totally the wrong way, thank God we were able to flag down a cab to get us back to the hotel-otherwise we’d still be walking.
I went with my friend C and her two work friends which was fine, I get on with these girls and we had a great time. The only thing that irritated me was that they talked pretty much non-stop about work and people they worked with. Ah hello-remember me???
One of C’s other friends was staying at the same hotel but we were separated at the concert. I don’t dislike this girl but we just don’t click, I find it very hard to have a conversation with her. It’s been like this ever since we were in school and I can’t see it improving. I just think you can’t be friends with everyone, I’m polite to her when I see her but I’m glad I don’t have to mix with her all the time.
Anyway we headed back early on Sunday- there was no point in hanging around as we weren’t shopping or anything. I was home in Costa by about 1:30 and flopped for the rest of the day.
There are some pictures on my Flickr link so feel free to have a look. I’ll try and post some more but it just takes so flipping long!
