Just back from GREAT night in Manchester! To start with Gabrielle was First Class, just a pity she didn't do a song with Michael! We fell lucky with our seats, isle ones as well, so we were up dancing, till over zealous stewards came round! ( Not that we sat down for long) Michael came out to usual rapturous applause, and was at his best, though have to say maybe did look a little tired! All the old favourites, and as an old timer was happy to hear and would have been disappointed not to hear them! Sam Fry certainly complimented him although audience did a great job helping them out! Band too were superb! Only complaint I have is not being allowed to front stage after WAMLAW especially when we were in pole position to be right there! And also maybe another 10 mins!!! Also great he encores with Steel Bars! My friend would have been so disappointed if he hadn't sung this one! Great friendly crowd, and couldn't believe we ended up sat with couple from our home town of Morecambe! And had a retweet of f someone else sat near us who recognised me!! I must have one of those faces!!!
So can't wait for the RAH now, Manchester certainlly was buzzing!
