12 years ago Nathan and I had bought tickets to what was going to be one of the most epic concerts of all time - Robbie Williams at Knebworth. We ended up selling those tickets on as Nathan's command training clashed with the concert; plus I got pregnant and didn't think a concert field was the best place to be with a big belly... (Reputedly, this was the biggest UK pop concert ever. Robbie Williams performed over a three-day period and drew crowds of over 375,000 people!)
We have the concert on DVD though, and it was always a staple piece of entertainment very late in the night, every time we had parties at ours in Brunei. We've enjoyed it and sung along to it, over and over many, many times!
Last night, we got to experience Robbie live as he took stage at
Du Arena at Yas. It was an amazing concert, the man is a fantastic entertainer. The two hours flew by and the energy was absolutely pumping.
Martin and Pia came as well, and Hilary and Karl had driven up from Dubai. Excellent concert crew!
My favourite moments were when he invited his father up to sing with
him, when he did a beautiful cover of the Lorde's song 'Royals' - and
'Let me entertain you', of course! It was a great, great concert all together! GREAT!
