Love the duet :wub: Such a nice song.

Also somehow I had no idea Sara Bareilles also wrote that "I'm not gonna write you a love song, cos you asked for it" song :slol:

Anyone a fan of classical music? And, if so, which of the shows on this page would you recommend? Preferably in March if there's anyone recognisable

Got Andre Chenier in May. Tosca in June. Then Nozze Di Figaro in July and Swan lake in August.



Incidentally - if anyone does ever fancy a trip to the opera - I've got early access booking now. 4-6 weeks ahead of general booking for each season. Take a gander at the ROH website and if there's anything you fancy - drop me a pm. I'm allowed upto 9 tickets for each show.

These are at the ROH in Covent Garden.

Get the kite, Beavis.

The Tchaikovsky and Kapustin on march 31st.
Or the violin virtuoso on the 1st April.
The first one sounds nice as well.

They look the most accessible. The others might be a little more niche.

That was strawberry floating unbelievable. I think they're good in the studio but they really take it beyond when playing live, had seen them in a large venue before but to see a tiny hall packed and bouncing with them was crazy. Fantastic.

Lion King is SO strawberry floating good.

I went to see Sundara Karma live recently, and they were amazing, especially Flame. They synced the lights so well to the beat of the song, it looked amazing.

But anyways this band Whenyoung was supporting them and the last song they played was so good, it's one of those songs that doesn't sound too extraordinary with headphones but live it just sounds out of this world.



It's funny how some songs sound better live and some worse.

Just received my members handbook for the new season at the opera House. Once again if anyone fancies seeing an opera or ballet in London - let me know. I can probably get you decent, cheaper seats.

Cost me 100 quid for membership but I've bought about 30 tickets this year for myself and friends. Most at very reasonable prices. Saved me a fortune.

There's some lovely stuff being performed over the next 12 months.

Saw Tame Impala at the 02 on Saturday. I wasn’t a massive fan before but strawberry floating hell, it was one of the best gigs I’ve ever been to! Incredible experience.

I went to see The Book of Mormon at the weekend with my family. I was expecting to enjoy it just not quite as much as I did, it was bloody fantastic and I still have one of the songs stuck in my head.

Oddly enough it’s left me wanting to read the actual Book of Mormon. Considering the creators it really doesn’t take the piss that much, painting Mormons as an odd but ultimately likeable bunch.

I love how well they seem to take it, too. The programme is full of adverts for their church :slol: Can't imagine any other group taking it in such good humour.

It's such a bizarre show. Hoping they announce the proper tour soon. Would be good to get to see it again somewhere close by.
