Ronan Keating Live

Posted on

Here’s some photo’s that I took at the London O2 arena on Saturday 26th January. Ronan went on the road with his ‘Fires’ tour (named after his new album). His fellow band mate Shane Lynch from Boyzone joined him on stage at the end to duet and announce that Boyzone tickets for their 20th anniversary tour later this year will be going on sale on Valentines day. He sang a mix of new songs and old including ‘When you say nothing and all’ and ‘ Life is a Rollercoaster’. Going back to his roots with a bit of pop music has proved to be popular and I completely agree with his decision to do so. I had a fantastic time with fellow fans and now look forward to the long-awaited Boyzone tour.

This afternoon I enjoyed a visit to The Stag theatre in Sevenoaks, Kent where Shane Lynch from Boyzone played Abanazar in the pantomime Aladdin. I’ve been a Boyzone fan from the very beginning and I try to support the lads individually whenever possible. I’d never been to this theatre before but thought it was a pleasant venue which catered well for lunch which was much-needed by the time my friends and I arrived. We then went on to wait for Shane at stage door who is always very polite when we see him. After a few quick photo’s we went inside to find our seats and warm up again. We were 3 rows back from the stage and had a brilliant view.

Hats off to the producers who made this such a fantastic show and even managed to drop in a Boyzone number. The whole show was extremely funny and full of adult humour, I felt like a big kid. I thought Shane did a fantastic job at playing a bad guy which seemed to suit him better than his good guy roles in the past. I must give credit to the rest of the cast who were extremely entertaining. Andrew Stone played the chief of police, Tony Haygarth played the emperor of China, Jasette Amos played the genie, Robert Pearce played the Widow Twankey, Ant Payne played Silly (Wishee) Billy (Washee), Drew-Levi Huntsman played Aladdin and Lucy Reed played Princess Jasmine.

Dancers big and small also deserve a mention. There was one very little girl who tried her best to keep up with the others, she was so cute bless her. definitely well worth grabbing tickets if you are in the area… I’m even thinking about going again!

A Look Back On My 2011

Posted on

As I took a short walk earlier I started to think about all the things that I have done this year and what a great year its been overall. The most memorable moments started with a trip to Dublin in March during St Patrick’s week. In that time we saw Boyzone at the Dublin O2 arena and went to Dublin zoo. There was never a dull moment, even back at the hotel while getting ready for nights out we would listen to music and have a glass or two of rose. The St Patrick’s day parade was crazy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people attend such an event all at once. It certainly was an incredible experience.

I attended a few Boyzone Concerts this year, a couple of Westlife and one Take That which was an amazing birthday present from my brother and his fiancĂ©e. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rock chick at heart but 90’s boy bands are my guilty pleasure.

This year has definitely been the year of the musical for me, I’ve clocked up an impressive 42 shows which include:

Jersey Boys x25

Ghost x3

Betty Blue Eyes x1

Legally Blonde x6

Lend me a Tenor x1

Grease x1

Mamma Mia x1

Rock of Ages x1

Priscilla x1

Wizard of Oz x1

I call it dedication… my parents call it a waste of money!

Another great moment was when I met my favourite YouTubers Katers17 and Cory Williams of SMP Films and Mean Kitty. They set up a fan meet up in Trafalgar Square, London back in September and caused quite a stir as they spent the whole day mingling with the crowd.

I’m hoping that 2012 will have lots more great things in store for me, I already have a few things in mind anyway. My new motto is to ‘live each day as if it’s you’re last’ – especially if this “end of the world” thing is true and we may not live to see 2013.
