    :nod: That is close up!

    Strangely enough, that makes me think of the people sitting all the way in the back, who can't see because the people in front are too tall or didn't take their coats off so they take up more space, so they can't see the musicians, and the seats aren't comfortable... what a nightmare!

    O lucky gals ;)

    thank you Bennyb ! ! I didn't know how to do for posting and you did it for me very well !
    Even if the main element is missing it's a nice "souvenir", isn't it ?

    I am short so I should always be allowed to sit in front. :nod:

    I always sit in the front row! I would be most upset if
    I didn't get a front seat :D

    Good pic Celia :thumbup:

    I wonder what kind of a row-audience I'd make... up til now 'shows' have been the ones in the streets!
    Though when I booked the two tickets in advance for the Edmonton gig, the man on the phone got me seats four rows from the front... :cool:

    That's great Benny. I was really hoping to get there but as you know I am not fit enough at the moment.

    Have a great time and I look forward to hearing all about it

    The show was excellent, but let me begin with the beginning.
    As I explained the first time we went to the Bull's Head, you cannot book your seats in advance. People queue up in a corridor that is open to the outdoors and are let in one by one about 30' before the show starts. We were first on the steps and as we were waiting, lo and behold! The maestro himself walked by. He recognized us as the people from Brussels (sorry, Fabienne) and told us not to stand out in the cold, to go into the pub and he would reserve four seats for us.
    He did. And the best ones.
    As usual, Alan began the evening all by himself on the keyboards. He announced he was dedicating the show to Maureen Elizabeth Price, his ex-wife and mother of his daughter Elizabeth, who had passed away and who they had buried on Nov. 1st. And he sang Bob Dylan's "It's all over, Baby Blue". We tried very hard to stay dry-eyed, but couldn't. It was a powerful and moving performance of a treasure of a song. What a communicator Alan is.
    After that, things got more cheerful and we had a lot of fun. We had a sing-along ("In Times like these") preceded by a funny story involving her Majesty the Queen, Simon Smith revisited + explanation, "Say it isn't True", the O Lucky Man medley, "Stand by me", "We gotta get out of this Place", solos by the other musicians, more stories from Alan. A great night out.

    Thank you so much for that lovely account of the show Benny.

    The tribute to his ex-wife Maureen must have been very moving
    and he reserved seats for you! - he is a real treasure.

    Sounds like it was a great night.

    Have you any plans to go to the Bulls Hwad again :D
