But of course we're confident we will somehow get a hold of some tickets.
Actually even David English from RSO couldn't help us get some tickets.
But he gave us some information about the soundcheck for this concert which would take place in the afternoon of the 19th.
We were advised to go down to the Festival Hall very early because there might be some one who could help us.
So, with a positive attitude we got on the tube and to our amazement
there's this guy in the same carriage as us with a cello.
"I'll bet he's one of the musicians from the Orchestra" Louis remarks.
Of course no one of could see the humor in this.
But when "mister Cello" got off the tube at the stop for Festival Hall we rushed after him and found out
he wás one of the musicians, he was on his way to the soundcheck and certainly we could walk with him to enter the Hall.
Very pleased and as quiet as mice we took our seats in the Hall.
This was the moment we'd been waiting for
there they were: Barry, Robin, Maurice, Linda, Hugh, Andy, Dick Ashby, Alan Kendall, Geoff Bridgeford and Tom Kennedy.
We enjoyed every minute of this two hour private concert!
Afterwards, in a bold moment, we walked over to the Gibbs, who actually didn't think it at all strange for us to just appear out of the blue.
They were very friendly and we were allowed to take pictures as well.
We told Tom we hadn't been able to get tickets for the concert, he laughed and advised us to stay in the ladiesroom till the beginning of the concert!
This proved to be a golden tip.
