My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

15 December 2010

Simply Amazing!

Morning everyone, no card today, just an update from last night when I went to see Simply Red at the NIA for their Farewell Tour.  I have been to everyone of Mick's concerts and he just keeps getting better and last night was no exception - WOW absolutely amazing!

So now I will bore you all with a selection of piccies LOL!  Some are not the best quality I'm afraid.

Macy Gray was the support act and I have to say, although I'm not a fan, she was very good.

This is the crowd at the NIA (National Indoor Arena) Birmingham:

Here's Mick and the band on stage:

And here he is again, a little closer this time:

This was Mick on his guitar doing Holding Back The Years: Just Brilliant!

And waving goodbye to the fans at the end:

I took loads of pics which will be very memorable.  I had the most amazing time and it was worth every penny. Can you tell I'm a big fan!? LOL.

Thanks for popping in.


  1. OMG I am SOOOOOOO very jealous right now, so glad you enjoyed the show, I am wishing I had gone too now, you will be walking on air for days now.

  2. Hi Claire, sounds like you had a fantastic night. Your photos are fab. They're in Sheffield tonight wish I'd have booked to go now.

  3. I saw them last year and way, way back in the 80s and still think are awesome!
    At one time lastyear his little ear-piece stopped working and he continued to sing without it; you couldn't here a difference. That's a true artist in my book!

  4. I've seen him lots of times too and missed out on tickets this time -he sure is awesome.I found you via Sheena's blog :-)

  5. Glad you had a good time hun :o) Concerts always feel more special in the run up to Christmas I think, haven't been able to go to one for ages due to a lack of babysitters - one day! Lisa x

  6. Looks like you had an amazing evening Claire! Yep, I can tell you're a big Mick fan!

    I sometimes wonder what happened to Macy Gray, it's good to hear she's still doing her thing. I saw her at Glastonbury a few years ago and she did a brilliant set.

    I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy 2011 x


Thank you for finding the time to leave me a comment - they make my day!
