Tempus Fugit – 2017

Fanfare / 31st December, 2017


Difficult to find the time sadly to report on musical /special watching events. So just a quick posthumous summary of 2017
In Feb J enjoyed her role being part of the supporting cast in Cats and to our great surprise sung the last stanza with the crew on stage
In April Kasabian rocked up at Southend gig – to promote new album – it became a little wild on the main floor, but we both enjoyed the gig as well as the musical Jazz treat in local prior to K.
In May Hadleigh Show came and went with the cossacks adding some sparkle











Later in May– Paul Rodgers stood up for Free running through his catalogue of hits



In June Anastacia came to town and was revelation – J and I both delighted with powerful and charismatic singer generating a warmth and empathy with the audience.



More in June – Queens – quarter finals day super line up sadly had to leave before the end of last match, so please Lopez hung in and won against Berydych – 7-5 in the third and then went on to take the title in an amazing final against Cilic with 2 gripping tie breakers.


July – Wimbledon – No 1 Court Men’s singles – Thiem stood out on our first visit we went back for the Men’s finals – sadly Cilic injured with badly cut and blistered foot -meant from the start the battle was never fully joined with Federer. But still a good day.










U2- Joshua Tree Tour – at Twickenham – huge screen and a setting sun – the spectacle had begun.










November – Future Islands at Norwich UEA – and yes we experienced the sudden crab like movements and (must be) knee inducing cramp due to the swift ducking and diving from Samuel T Herring as he swept through his repertoire.

Plus Alison Moyet All Cried Out and seeking more than Resurrection.

A good haul.
