If anyone going to the concert on Tuesday fancies meeting up beforehand then some of us will be at the Hoop and Toy pub from around 4pm onwards. It is in Thurloe Place, just around the corner from South Kensington tube station.
Yesterday's concert was absolutely fabulous and the girls performed a mixture of tracks from the Fly Away, the Starlight EP, some new repertoire and Sound of Silence thrown in for good measure.
Here is the set list...
I Loves You Porgy/Summertime Starlight Hide & Seek 1234 Sound of Silence Steppin' Out/Hit The Road
Tonight You Belong To Me Black Is The Colour Goodnight My Angel Sixties Medley
Encore 1 - An Angel Cries Encore 2 - Steppin' Out/Hit The Road
We were treated to two encore's, Firstly An Angel Cries and then a repeat of Steppin' Out/Hit The Road. I was very impressed with the new repertoire, particularly Hide & Seek and 1234 which I thought were very good.
The setting of the Elgar Room was stunning. I have been to the Royal Albert Hall a few times now but it was my first time in the Elgar Room and I was very impressed, a small room decorated with pictures of world famous musicians made for a very intimate concert.
I probably took more photo's during this concert than I have before and I think they are some of my best too, the lighting was good and my position in the middle of the front row helped too! The girls did a signing afterwards and I got my ticket signed.
Dazza, many thanks for your report and excellent photos.
Also thanks to you and all of you who were there for your company on the day.
There's not much I can add to Dazza's report that he hasn't already mentioned. The venue was a small, intimate one, and the fact that we were all in the front row meant that we really did have the best seats in the house.
When they came out for their second encore, they asked which song from the night we wanted them to sing again. I took this chance to shout out 1234 as I really enjoyed it, and I know Charlotte heard me as she acknowleged me! However, they sang Steppin' Out / Hit The Road which was just as great.
The meet and greet at the end was just the perfect end to the perfect evening. I took along a couple of photos I took of them, one from the Apple Store show back in December and one from the Classic Brits last month which they kindly signed for me.
It was great seeing everybody at the Elgar Room last Tuesday in what turned out to be a memorable evening. Many thanks to Dazza, Graham and Jim for their photos and girls?? You were amazing. I think i speak for all who attended when i say the new material you showcased last week makes us hunger for a new album. Studies must come first off course. A big thank you also for giving us your time after the show for autographs and photos. I look forward to the next time eagerly.
