I Got Soul

Wow, what a night!

The arena was packed to the rafters, we had great seats and the Killers were fabulous! Brandon Flowers' was on brilliant form, he totally owned the stage and sang my favourites "Human", "Somebody Told Me" and "All These Things That I've Done".

Definitely one of the best gigs I've ever been to and Boom agreed it was in his top five.

My cold had subsided but not totally gone away but that didn't spoil my enjoyment one bit - I was buzzing! Am looking forward to catching them again at the V Festival.

Before we went to the gig, we caught the first half of Liverpool vs Real Madrid in Champions League action. Boom of course wanted the Scousers to lose but we decimated the Spanish giants, the final score being 4-0 (5-0 agg).

Not confident about the weekend clash against Man U but hey, who knows? (I just hope we don't get thrashed...)

Top gig, top result, top night! :-)


  1. I prefer Bill Bailey's version of the Killers song...

    "I've got ham but I'm not a hamster"

    Which makes as much sense :-P

  5. I think I've said this before on your blog, but "seats? At a concert? HOw can you enjoy yourself in a seat?!"

    Seats are for jumping up and down on.

    Lucky you. I am so envious. I get to see bloody Coldplay and you get The Killers. Grrrhhhh!

  7. Eoz - thanks!
    Mosh - my height, seats are a must at concerts...but everyone stands up anyway!
    RB - Yep! I was jumping up and down! Am so glad I was quick enough to get these tickets!

  8. I'm glad I had a standing ticket for Metallica at the SEC many years ago (just before they became *really* shit). Seats were for sitting in. End of.

    "Security" staff were throwing people out if they stood up. Not "on" the seats, just stood up. Seated ticket = seat = sit down.

    Sounds like a Premiership football game these days.
