Toronto and Kingston gigs  Reply with quote  

Well......... another amazing time seeing the lads Very Happy The lads rocked big time! I am always surprised at what they come up with - always a thrill to hear the ever-changing set-lists. Neat to see them just go with the flow of the crowd and work their magic on the stage. One song comes to mind that was totally rockin' in the middle was I Can See Clearly Now - all 4 of the very lovely talented fellas close together just jammin' away - unbelievable to watch them all play along with each other and it all works! Hard to explain but sure those who are going to see them will know what I mean.
I was treated to a song that I yelled out at the end of the Toronto gig - Feet On the Ground! I was soooooooooooo happy to hear that. One of the most rockin' songs ever! I love the 'people' part. Had the opportunity to tell the lads about both of the above mentioned songs that moved me beyond words. They all play their instruments with such brilliance and very cool style. Liam amazed me on the keyboards both nights........he was pounding out some very cool notes/tunes Very Happy They all were in fine form - even as tired as they were from the 30 hours it took them to get to Toronto from Ireland. And then the long drive to Kingston.
I managed to get a few chats in and of course got a few pics taken with the sweet Irish men. I just got a new computer tonight and now waiting to get the pictures off my camera and will post some at Facebook and Myspace.
Sending a BIG thank you to Liam, Fiachna, Dave and Kieran for making the trip to Canada and making Roger and I light up with your brilliance. You all shine so brightly and ROCK!!!!And have big fat hearts! Hope the tour goes well and safe travels.
Luv YOU!
Hope all those attending the U.S. gigs enjoy your time seeing the lads. Well of course you will!! Very Happy
Best band ever!

LOL Felicity on your post. Yes snuck in one kiss when first meeting up with Liam in front of Hugh's Room in Toronto. I went to give him one on the cheek but thought what the heck I might as well go for the lips Wink
It sure was a fabby night (s) Luv that word Cool
Joe, how sad you can't make it to see the lads. Sad
Hopefully they may make it out closer to you next time round.
I tried to add some pics at Facebook but no luck. Waiting to hear from Annette to find out why.
I did though add some at Myspace. Never thought to copy and paste the link.........will go and find that now and post it.
All those going to the U.S. gigs - have yourselves a very fabby time!
And can't wait to hear all about your adventures.

Thanks Carol for the great review and also the photos.

Loved your comment about the kiss - why go for the cheek when you can go straight for the lip lock. Well done Carol - I'm sure Liam would of been expecting the lip lock anyway Smile Smile Smile

thanx all for the nice comments.
So happy to read all the reviews and feel all the happiness that surrounds those who have the opportunity to catch the lads when they can. It is nice to get that fix or extra fixes (not naming any names like Ray, or Geraldine, nor Barbara, or Laura Wink ) Some great photos too flying about the net as well Smile Smile Smile
Thanx again to the lovely Irish fellas for coming on over across the pond and filling the air with their awesome sweet music! Applause
Can't wait till next time
Very Happy
