Sydney by Anne Bryant (20/03/2004)
Am now home, eagerly awaiting his arrival in Melbourne.
Lat night was the most incredible experience I have EVER had. It was the most awesome concert that I have ever witnessed.
It was a sell-out concert, and Michael was in brilliant form, to say the least!!!!!
At the end of the show, the WHOLE audience were on their feet giving him a standing ovation. EVERYONE!!!!! They even turned the house lights on, so that Michael could see, and he was stunned. He was so overcome, he just had his hands to his face in shock. The goose-bumps were everywhere!!!! He just kept saying over and over thank you, thank you.
I have got to know the backing singers, and they are lovely young couple (as well as Annie, of course). I call the guy sexy No.2, and I think secretly he loves it.
A funny incident last night - the opening of the second half was Evita, and as he was walking down the stairs all serious, he slipped on the last step, caught his balance, started to giggle, then started to sing - What were the first words - Oh what a circus. He turned around and looked at the step and laughed and pointed. Then 'falling over themselves to get all' - he pointed over his shoulder again at the step, and had everyone in stitches. It was so funny.
More of the songs I remember are
Something inside so strong
This is the moment,
From here to eternity
Boy from nowhere
Dancing in the Dark
Help yourself - wish we could lol
Wonder of you to finish
Not in that order of course.
I had a lovely photo taken with Michael, and have heaps of stage door and concert photos, although some of the concert ones aren't as sharp as the others.
Thats all I can think of at the moment, because I am so tired after the huge weekend, and meeting everyone again was so lovely.
