TOUR DIARY – November 21st, 2012

 

I have been spreading rumours that Rachel and I would be premiering our orchestral version of Quadrophenia at the Royal Albert Hall Teenage Cancer concert in March 2013. Now we have decided that because the Who tour extends into March and probably beyond into April in the UK that it would be too much for me personally. Rachel’s score sounds wonderful, and will certainly be premiered some time in 2013 or 2014. More on this later.

 

Meanwhile The Who are now in Canada. Montreal was great. Ottawa tonight. Looking forward to it.

Toronto was superb, and a delight to have it preceded by the book signing (I’m the nerdy middle aged woman in a clerical collar). Thank you for your graciousness, for the honesty and reflective wisdom of your book (hatchet job on to soul as it might have been, sometimes that’s the best way to let the light in and the necessary blood out! Thank you.

Just to be fair and non-sexist:
When females lose their concert tix, not very often because most of us carry them in our handbags,
I say:
“Park them in your bra, where they will be safe (and moist and warm.)”

I,personally, have parked concert tickets in my bloomers.

The motto of this story is:
Do whatever it takes to avoid losing your concert tickets!

Special evening for myself and my youngest son Joe(10)!!
Story is too good to be made up. Picked up Joe early from swimming practice, while running to the van our tickets fell out of my pocket. I didn’t notice until we had parked in downtown. Called my wife- Suzie who was to pick up our daughter-Georgie at practice while we haggled with the scalpers, but didn’t have enough $ to get any new. They found the tix, so we headed back to St.Paul to get them now @ 7:45 with the 7:30 start time. Made it back to our spot that had remained open in the lot around 8:15- no speediing tickets.The ticket scanner said we needed to go to Guest services where they gave us LL seats for Joe’s first real concert!As we took our seats the concert started. Thank you so much for waiting!!!!
Missed talking/photos with Simon before the show. Couldn’t stay late for any chance to see you or Roger and the rest of the band after heartfelt show with school this morning. All the Best!! James
