A Night To Remember.

Extracts from this document...


A Night To Remember It was the day of the concert. The lively atmosphere around the arena was only beginning, being there early before, I saw the transformation of the what seemed to be spacious hall, into a jam packed stadium, mocked with nothing but up for it Geordies and music lover alike. As the lights sparkled above the stage, the huge amplifiers buzzed, vibrating the seat in which I had suddenly risen from. Announcements through the loud speakers were cropping up every minute, adding to the anxiety, whilst the crowds poured in, creating a carnival like atmosphere, despite still being an hour away form the main performance. Market stall like shops were beginning to unfold around the perimeter of the seated area; hats, shirts, jumpers you name it were being sold to the public with the name 'Stereophonics' sprung across them, mean while the more 'intelligent' of us crammed ourselves down to the front where the party was just starting. ...read more.

Pushing harder and harder forward, the band seemed to get louder and louder.. Sweat dripped from the faces of each talented musician and despite the overall immense pressure, each and everyone of them played out a blinder. Still, Richard Jones unlike any other bassist, hung back and looked cool, as again the thousands around pushed forward. The song finally came to an end after seven minutes of well improvised encores and great stage acting. The pulsating crowd displayed a mammoth-like show of appreciation. I myself was grinning like a Cheshire Cat, whilst gleams of joy rode across the face of all who had shown up. Despite the fact there was a burst of the usual Northern rain on the way out, everyone looked pleased and I knew I had got my money's worth. Michael Cookson ...read more.
