Hi everyone, I thought it might be nice to have a thread for everyone to post their concert reviews in again like we've done in the past. It's such fun hearing about all the shows and everyone's experiences and see their photos. 

 

Anyone attending, please post your review.  Its exciting that Michael and his band are hitting the road again and traveling the world!

 

I hope you all don't mind I started this thread for concert reviews.  I'm looking forward to reading about everyone's experiences!

 

Thanks!!!

Robin :)

 

P.S.  Update-Nov, 2010-I wish them well and cannot wait to see the show again in 2011!!! MB totally rocked it at NJ PAC 11/3/2010!!! Thanks Michael!!!!!

Yes you did and i will be forever grateful.xx
Hi Sharon, what a fabulous night you’ve all had! Glad you appreciated the setlist: you guys were seriously spoiled! It seems meeting up with the girls is one of the best parts of the RAH show, with so many people going. How nice of Juliet to get your pic signed! So when’s your next concert? And did you read Michael’s blog? It does sound like he had as much fun as you all did! Well, thanks for sharing Sharon, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
What did you say? I cant hear you!!
Carol and I were right by the speakers and boy was it loud!! Fantastic, but very loud!!!
Well, you've read all the reviews about the concert from the other guys, so not much for me to add on this except, Michael came right over to where Carol and I were sitting and stood and physically posed for us when we were taking pictures.
He put one leg on the speaker and looked straight at us, smiled, tilted his head, put his hand on his hip and gave us two or three different poses. Guess what??? My camera wouldnt take the picture (realised after that it had switched itself off!!)!!! Doh, doh and flipping DOH!!!!! How angry was I?
Carols camera jammed and we both looked at eachother after and said 'I didnt get that, did you?'
Michael also asked the audience if we liked his hair long or short to which the crowd shouted back in an inaudible scream both long and short, but we couldnt gauage which vote won! I love it with the length he has now personally.
Before the show, Caro land I met up with Mica, Michael Lington, Nelson, Steve Milo and Brian and had a lovely chat with them. They posed for photos with us too. Mica is a really funny lady and very warm and welcoming as is Michael L, Steve, Nelson and Brian.
After the concert, Carol, Juliet and I went backstage and were met by Tim who greeted us with the warmth of an old friend. We were shown into the green room where we got all of the items ready for signing.
We chatted with Brian and Michael L and were introduced to Michael L’s parents and step Mother. I even managed have a small conversation with Michaels Dad in German. They are wonderful people and so obviously and quite rightly very proud of their son.
We were then taken into Michael’s dressing room where Michael had to unlock the other door so that my wheelchair could get through. Michael commented that there was one troublemaker in the group!
He told us how he had enjoyed the night’s performance and how grateful he was to his hard working band. I asked him if there was any chance of him adding another aria to the concert and he said that he wasn’t sure how well it would be received by us all. I told him that we would all love it and this seemed to please him. So you never know do you?
He signed everything that we asked him to including the poster for the winning bidder. He was checking on spellings of names as well.
He posed for photos and when he posed with me he came right down and crouched next to my wheelchair and I couldn’t resist and quick ruffle of his curly locks and a quick touch of his cheek (Face!) His skin is so soft and his hair is very soft and silky. He laughed that I was ruffling his hair.
He spoke to Carol about the photo book that Carol had made using her photos from Hampton Court and he commented that we had met up with Isa.
He also spoke to Juliet about her wonderful marathon running and was impressed by the efforts she is making to raise funds for the UK fan reception charities which also includes Michaels own charity organisation, the MBC.
I told him where we were planning to hold the fan reception next year and gave him the date and asked if he thought he might be able to attend. He replied that he would need to liaise with his schedule manager so it may not be out of the question.
He posed for Carol and Juliet too and even asked Tim to check the photos. He was extremely patient because poor (or lucky?) Carol had to have hers taken 3 times because he eyes were closed!!
As we were leaving, I asked if I could whisper something private in his ear and he leant forward for me to do so. (I will never tell you what I said or what he whispered back so please don’t ask.) He then kissed me on the cheek and told me I was lovely.
We all thanked him very much for allowing us to meet with him again and with that we left his dressing room.
I had forgotten to give him the gift that I had bought for him so Juliet whizzed me back round to his room again. He thought it funny that I had forgotten. He said he loved the gift and said that it was very kind that I had bought it for him. (It was solid silver electric guitar cufflink and tie pin set)
What a truly amazing evening and a night I will never ever forget for the rest of my life.
Thank you to both Carol and to Juliet for helping me to make this a wonderful evening and to all the lovely girls, Sharon , Andrea, Helen, Oz, Abena, Debs, Sophie, Catherine, June and Don, Ivana and to anyone else who I’ve forgotten, I apologise profusely.

I 've got to tell you that Mica was by far the best support act Michael has ever had (not including the soldiers last year) Mica was amazing and has a trulty talented powerful voice for a young lady.
Love Jennifer XX
PS Sorry, it has turned out so long but it was a wonderful night and well worth documenting.
Thanks for sharing Jennifer. I had a feeling all would go well for you ladies... Glad it worked out and MB was in such a great mood. I vote for the shorter hair personally!! I have never hear him ask an audience that question before.. OMG he's posed for pics like that before on the sides here with his leg up on the monitor, bummer you guys neither one got the shot.. Doens't that figure!!

Glad you all had fun, been seeing alot of photo's on FB. Thanks for sharing!!!!!
MB is the BEST!

Hi Jennifer, oh boy, what can we say? Well, I’m glad you’ve had such a fun time at the concert and backstage. Sorry about your camera troubles though: that’s technology for you! Oh Jen, you’re such an opportunist! Lol That was really nice of you to get him that present… Well sweetie, thanks for sharing your special moment, I know you’ll treasure it and I really hope you realize how very fortunate you are. BTW, this report wasn’t half as long as last year’s so don’t worry! Lol Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
I'm sorry about your camera problems Jennifer&perhaps Juliet&Carol got them for you. I'm glad you, of course enjoyed the show&awesome going backstage.

Oh Jennifer....what a delightful story about meeting with Michael! So filled with LOVE!!! It is very touching to see and hear about Michael taking time to meet with his fans. I am also glad that you gave Michael your private message. I know that must have meant a whole lot to you!!! You and your friends are making it mighty tempting to join you all at the next RAH concert....as long as it isn't tomorrow...lol I would love to experience the venue that Michael so enjoys!! Your story really warms my heart Jennifer...thank you for sharing!! I especially loved the running of your fingers through his curls!!! I absolutely LOVED his curls in the photos from RAH. I really like his hair at this length just for the reason you mentioned. WAY TO GO Jen!!!! Next time ask if you could snip off a little!!!!! LOL!
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Yes, Jennifer that sounds like a really lovely experience. I love that he has time for his fans like that. It's always great when youre musical heroes turn out to be wonderful human beings too!
