What a few hectic and busy few days that have been had!
As a present for the wife’s birthday, I purchased tickets for O2 to see her favourite band. This later developed into a couple of nights stay in the city of London for us, with no kids. Heaven!
Anyway, we headed up on the Thursday having booked into a hotel in Canning Town, at what is our view from the room window? Yes, the docks. But behind that was the O2 itself and Canary Wharf off to the right. Perfect placement.
The rest of Thursday was spent at Westfields in Stratford and relaxing in front of the telly, without the need for any childrens channels…
Friday, we headed out to Canary Wharf, a part of London we have yet to visit. Instead of using the underground, we decided to try out the Emirates Airline. What’s that, I hear you ask?! Well, I’ll let you off ‘coz I didn’t know they existed ’til a couple of days ago. There is now a new way to get from Canning Town to Greenwich; cable cars!
Yep, there is a set of cable cars that goes straight across the river to the front door of the O2. How convenient! And also, pretty much the same price as normal public transport, even better!
All this leads up to the main attraction that evening. We may be situated in the Gods of the O2, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it might have been. A perfect view for us to see the whole attraction. Granted, I should have taken my camera and not relied on my phone, but still it was a great night.
I should have difficulty in admitting that, but to be honest, I don’t. I’m comfortable in my music tastes. Whilst eclectic, I know my roots are heavy metal and rock, but I don’t mind a BSB boogie every now and again! And come on, who wants to miss the first gig in London for fifteen years of All Saints! Who, by christ, are exactly the same. They sound no different and pretty much look the same too. A few words were forgotten but that can be excused.
BSB themselves once again put on a good show. Filled with some classics as well as material from the new album, plenty of stage covering dances and also an acapella set just to show their maturity. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s the second time I’ve seen them, and both shows were good entertainment and a bloody good sing song!
Despite me being ill throughout the whole duration, it was still a good show and good time.
Back to work now….
