At the end of last year I went to see the Levellers at Rock City with Amanda from the Ana Mum Diary, her husband Tall Dad and his friend. As Tall Dad listed all the gigs they had been to I realised how long it was since Mr A and I went to a gig.
Mr A loves rock and I am more of an Indie/Folk girl so although we both enjoy bits of each other’s music, Pop is where we tend to compromise and a guilty pleasure. I remember we went to see Take That in Manchester just after Mr G was born. It was an incredible show, really theatrical and had stunning effects. So when I heard there were Robbie Williams tickets available on Stub Hub I thought that might be perfect. So many classic tunes, guaranteed to be a good laugh I think.
Thinking a bit harder I think the last gig might have been the Foo Fighters last Spring. I even made a video it was such a rare event.
Now it is coming back to me, we did gig at Camp Bestival last Summer, but that was with kids in tow, literally, they were tucked up happily in sleeping bags and ear defenders in a trolley while we slept. But when you have to rack your brains so hard to recall your last gig or night out together it is a sign don’t you think?
Dad gave us some money for a night out and a babysitting voucher for Christmas. I am thinking a gig rather than a posh meal might be the way forward.
