Royal Albert Hall

And we are back...... our first big gig since lock down restrictions eased. Postponed from what would have been Sir Cliff's 80th birthday last year, we were really looking forward to this gig.

Seated up in the Gods (Rausing Circle), we had an unrestricted view where the sound was absolutely fantastic as we were pretty much level with the huge sound system.

The set began with "Wired For Sound" and during the best part of 2 hours, we got a bit from just about every one of the 7 decades he has been recording. With his vast back catalogue, how do you choose a set? There is so much choice. What do you leave out? He got around this a little bit by doing a medley of shortened versions of his oldies, which included the audience singing back with The Young One's version of "Living Doll", and a medley of "Carrie" and "Devil Woman".

He looked good, he sounded great and gave us a really enjoyable show.

The highlight was of course, the never aging "Miss You Nights" - always guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye.

It was another "oldie" to tick off, although the way Cliff was moving and sounding, he is not going to be leaving us anytime soon and we might just get the opportunity to see him again. During the show, Cliff gave a nod to Bruce Welch who was in one of the boxes watching the show.
