I was down with a cold since last Thursday but finally went to the clinic today as my pleghm had changed colour, sore throat had started and I sounded funny. Had half a day off and for once I'm glad that I'm sick and back home early since I managed to catch Concert for Diana at spanking new Wembley Stadium even though its a repeat.
Elton John started off with Your Song... such a beautiful song especially with the tinkling of the piano.
OMG, Duran Duran performed 2nd in line!!!! They were introduced by Prince Andrew and Prince Harry as one of Diana's favourite band. Arrrggghh they played Rio too!!! OOOoooo, I was on cloud nine but ohhh my, John Taylor and Nick Rhodes did not age gracefully definitely haha... John was like errrmmm just woke up from slumber with his hair all ruffled up. I was absolutely crazy over Duran Duran back in the 80s. Yeah, I lived in the mumbo jumbo era :p Could have been better if both Princes rehearsed their speech rather than reading notes.
Absolutely loved Joss Stone and Nelly Furtado segments!!! They both rock!
Bryan Ferry is playing now and he's good too. Errr by the time I'm typing on, its showing Andrew Lloyd Webber section now!!!! Anastacia looked in the pink of health. Josh Groban and Sarah Brightman are simply brilliant. Andrea Bocelli, no need to say of course was fantabulous. Donny Osmond and Jason Donovan still looked dashing.
I'm waiting for Take That (arrghh) and Rod Stewart (arrrghhhh *pull hair*) now... goshhh I took my meds and not sure how long I can last before I went on slumberland. Thank goodness there is You Tube LOL!!!! I'm watching them now :p Just go on to You Tube and search for Concert of Diana... voila... loads of videos were up by now. Oh my, Rod still looked great as ever!!! Eh... no one threw knickers onto the stage kekeke security is pretty tight I guess.
This is certainly a fitting concert to pay tribute to the late Princess Diana. I'm sure she must be very proud of
Ok I better get this posted and concentrate on the concert. Hope I don't doze off so soon.
Regular programme will resume once I'm no longer on a high.
