The Searchers may be on holiday, but Sam and myself decided not to go away, having already been away in March and looking to go away in September.
That meant we had time to load ourselves up with other activities.
On 9th June, Sam, her brother Dan and myself did a 10k walk round London for Crones & Colitis. We raised over £400 between us.
Sam sadly picked up a hamstring injury a week before, but was determined to complete the walk, which she did
Thank you to everyone who sponsored us!
On 10th June, our good friends Tony Bourke and Christine Stitson finally tied the knot after 20 years together. Tony does not rush into things
The whole day was filled with their love for each other and specially their love for music.
The tables were named after famous albums and the drummer on that album. Sam and myself were on the Roger Taylor (Night at the opera) table. Don't tell him, but I stole the pic of Roger...
The evening was capped off with the brilliant Phil Holbourne band. Phil was the guitarist on We will Rock You. Tony was eventually convinced to get up and bash a Queen tune out.
On Monday 2nd July, Sam, Her brother Daniel, my mum and myself all met up with Tony, chris and a few of his friends to see Queen + Adam Lambert at the O2
Another great night was had (we may have stolen Rogers sticks, don't tell him...) and Adam, Brian and Roger were on fine form rattling through their hits in 2hrs. The night flew past. On this occasion I took a few pics, but decided I actually wanted to take the concert in old school rather than through a camera.
On 22nd June, Sam and myself went to the London Stadium to see The Foo Fighters. While I had seen them before (Sam hadn't) it was my first time at the London Stadium. Being a West Ham fan, that is sad. My first impressions of the stadium are good. I liked it. Ok I've not seen a game there, but for concerts, its one of the best. Even the Foos commented it was better than Wembley.
The concert its self is definitely one of the best Ive ever seen. The band don't stop for over 2.5hrs and clearly then, they wanted to carry on.
