Leonard is older than Elvis

This isn't 'news' but it was to me. We are all amazed at Leonard's constitution for his age. However it puts it in perspective to note that he is older than Elvis! There's hope for all the late bloomers of the world. People born around the same time (sort of sequentially): James Brown Yuri Gagarin ...

Re: O2 Arena London Thursday 13 November 2008 - A Great 3 Hours

You miss the point. When Hallelujah was performed last night there was a ripple through the arena which was a joy to behold. At the end of the song (importantly at the end and not during) the moment was left hanging in the air - that would be the time for audience participation. It only struck me at...

Re: O2 Arena London Thursday 13 November 2008 - A Great 3 Hours

Agree with the reticence of the British. Probably even more so down in the expensive seats. How about the forum organising /prompting an audience singalong of Hallelujah by the crowd at the end of the song? It felt like we all wanted to do it but no-one had the voice to start it up. It would make th...

CONCERT REPORT: London, O2 Arena, November 13-14

Just returned from the O2 Arena on London Thursday 13 November 2008. A great way to spend 3 hours. Leonard jogged on and delivered a superb performance.
