george michael concert – hotel weekend break


My ex work colleague Lorraine lit up my phone this morning before I had even finished my muesli…I have got to see him, I have still got a crush on him after all this time and despite his “history”. I take it you mean George I ventured – with flash back images of her boogieing round the handbags to ” wake me up before you go go”. Absolutely I know he will never be mine but I can still dream. He “George Michael”  has announced his final 2 concerts at Earls Court in August. Now when Lorraine had this crush she was a mere child herself, now almost a gran I did have to wonder about the enduring power of the teenage crush. I presume there will be a gang of you and you will want rail tickets and an overnight in a hotel as well I asked, cereal spoon poised to take down all the details. Have you had a ridiculous teenage crush you still harbour – do let let me know I might even tell you about mine … a clue it involved lots of tartan !

summer concert weekends


My good friends Dave and Sue decided they would like to make the most of the their weekends in summer 2008 by taking in some of the great outdoor concerts on offer.

What do you recommend asked Sue and can you help me with tickets and maybe  somewhere to stay close by?

Well I would say Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday bash – the 44664 Concert has to be an obvious choice on June 27th in Hyde Park, It will be so special and I expect some real celebs will turn up as surprise performances are promised.

Another option is the O2 Wireless Festival again in Hyde Park but in early July. It has some top acts including Fatboy Slim , Morrissey and Sam Sparro. Reply back and let me know of any outdoor concert events for weekends in Summer 08 you recommend
