Seen the show? You also need the DVD !
on 19 December 2010
I saw the show in Swansea (with my wife, son Paul and grandaughter Alice) and was so impressed with Brendan, his dancers and the fantastic band that I bought the DVD the next day on Amazon. It arrived two days later in perfect condition. Not long after, another copy arrived in the post, sent by a dear friend (you know who you are!). We are pleased to have two copies, just in case we wear one out!
The live show was thrilling and the audience were so excited, which enhanced the atmosphere, but of course, you only get one viewpoint. The DVD fixed that, in spades, with several-behind-the-scenes clips, including an interview with Mr Cole that was most revealing!
The band and (especially) the singers almost had their own show, led by the brilliant Barry Robinson and (he is so lucky) one of the highlights (so many) was hearing the gorgeous Julie Maguire sing "I Have Nothing".
Surprisingly, Brendan also sings (he obviously wants to expand his market) and he was good, always in tune and has quite a nice voice. He is a little shy about singing, but I think he should get some lessons from Julie and Iain Mackenzie (also very good).
Highly recommended, whether you are a music or dance fan - go on...
