Michael Ball and Alfie Boe – Together Tour (Newcastle)

Date: Thursday 1st December 2016

Venue: Metro Radio Arena (Newcastle, UK)

In November Michael Ball and Alfie Boe released an album together with a collection of songs mainly from Musical Theatre. They have both had incredible careers on stage and it is brilliant that they decided to work together to create the album and a tour to go alongside it.

I had certainly had the tickets for quite a long time, which is always a shame when it comes to any concert, show or performance. But it did allow me to be able to listen to the album over and over and over again. Really appreciating how the pair bring out great things in each other the way they have arranged the lyrics in the songs.

59 Year old Daniel Blake has recently had a serious heart attack and has been told by his Doctor that it is still not save for him to go back to work. He must then try to be at the right level on the benefits system which shows it has no heart at all. Meeting single mother Katie will give him hope as they both fight to survive.

Inside View: No Man’s Land

img_0067_zpsoypzrvoo

This year I signed up to become a Friend of the Theatre Royal which means you get discounts for the Theatre tickets, priority booking and other perks. Such as Inside View events, I had no idea about these until getting my first newsletter ahead of the new season going on sale. When I read about them thought it sounded very interesting getting an insight into a show and possible appearance by cast members. As soon as I saw that one was down for No Man’s Land and £2 more expensive than normal I just had to go for it and hope Ian McKellen and/or Patrick Stewart would be involved.

Stage Door – Patrick Stewart

The queue from the stage door down the side of the Theatre reached the other street, incredible! It actually worked out very well that everyone did that as the actors just worked down the line signing everything (to do with the production) in sight!

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Day!

mobile_zpsoa4oeier

Today is eventually the day when I am going to see these two legends on stage! I haven’t even had to travel to London as they have been so kind to do a small tour of the play and come up to Newcastle. It feels like I have been waiting forever to see it after having the tickets for months and months, I am sure it will be worth the wait (and missing the Newcastle United match).

I think I will even attempt the stage door to see if I can catch a glimpse of them leaving, possible autograph/photos!

August 17th = Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Day
