My Early Birthday Present to Myself
As you all know I am a huge Elvis fan.
This year I bought myself some tickets to see an Elvis concert at the Newcastle Arena as an early birthday treat.
Of course Im sure you are all aware he died on my 17th Birthday in 1976. I was never lucky enough to see him LIVE but I believe this was the next best thing. Im sure he would never have imagined that after nearly 34 years of being dead, he would still be wowing audiences while touring.
This was his original band, and backing singers who all played live on stage.
The footage of Elvis was from various concerts that he had played with these artists and all of the music and noise was taken from the footage apart from his voice.
This enabled the band to perform for him whilst he sang along to the music they played. He even introduced the band members one at a time to the audience.
It was very moving and so well done , I can only say if that after this concert I cant imagine what it would have been like to be lucky enough to actually experience one of his original performances.
The audience were in awe of the lighting , live music and the presence in the auditorium.
My daughter and I had a brilliant evening which I will always remember, and if this show comes near to where you live, go see it, you wont be dissapointed, it was amazing.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
