First Gig Anniversary!

  
Happy Anniversary to me…

On this day, one year ago, I was heading off for my first Simple Minds gig :-))

I was in heaven! I’d wanted to catch them in 2014 but came to them just a little too late in the summer to organise going anywhere 😦 But I made sure I was NOT going to miss out in 2015 – even if it was for one gig only! 

I can’t express the joy I felt being there. It was just…wonderful. I was on a high the rest of the night, the next day and days to come.

The highlight for me was Spirited Away. By far my favourite song on Big Music. It had been taken off the setlist for a number of gigs prior to Cambridge. I wasn’t holding out much hope of hearing it, and then…

I was softly singing along, tears falling slowly down my cheeks. 

It was everything ❤️

Gigs Missed And Missed…

One ticket stub I own from a gig I never went to (and never could have possibly gone to, being on the other side of the world and all)…

And the other a flyer for a gig I *was* going to and now can’t go to :-((( I was sssoooo looking forward to my first ever “arena” sized gig too. I’ve only ever seen gigs either outdoors or in smaller venues. Was really looking forward to seeing The Stranglers too. I want to cry 😥

That’s the way the cookie crumbles, I suppose. On Nov 26th, I will be lamenting not being there 😥 Feel for me!
