On a night like this…

Victoria and I went to watch Kylie at the O2 last night with Darren and Gail.

First things first; we stayed at a little B&B not far (5 mins in a taxi) from the Puerto del Carmen and o2 called One Six Two – it was a great little place, well worth the money and in a fantastic location for the O2. So if you plan to visit the O2, I can highly recommend it, but more on that in another post.

After arriving at the B&B we went to the venue to grab something to eat. We ate at Las Iguanas, a South American style restaurant; it was very nice!

In the concert arena we had seats very similar to those for the Prince concert last year, just on the other side. I was quite relieved as I feared that we would be up in the gods. The o2 has very steep seating, and being near the top could be almost unbearable. As it was we were only 3 rows in on the top tier, which actually gives a very good view of the stage.

The show started at about 8pm. It was basically broke up into 8 acts with a stage theme to each, and a costume change between! Some of it was surreal, some of it was more than a tad camp… but all of it was pretty darned great! I enjoyed a few tracks that had much rockier tracks to them. I also enjoyed the video screens. They were actually worth watching because they would often show the whole stage from a higher angle and show what the all the dancers were doing in context.

Had a fab time – really enjoyed it – well worth it!

Act 7: Black versus White
* On A Night Like This

I really enjoyed it, as I would expect to, especially with the company I was keeping on the night. If I had any complaints it would be that it felt a little short compared to 2006 in Manchester and a very similar running order. A few songs dropped out and replaced by Lost Highway tracks.
