Pepsi and Shirlie

By Andrew_Hurley
The Here and Now Tour is in its 10th Year. The line up this year wasn't too bad; A Flock of Seagulls (well Mike Score), Pepsi and Shirlie (pictured above), Midge Ure, Belinda Carlisle, Jimmy Somerville, Jason Donoan and Boy George.

I was on the second row so it gave me a great vantage point (absolutely essential for good concert photography). I just used my compact Canon G11, which gave me good results for the internet but they don't tend to print very well due to the pixelation and lack of detail, something I may need to work on.

As you are probably aware, SLR cameras are usually not allowed at concerts, but judging by the security that was on that night (Saturday 25 June), I'd have probably got away with it. Never mind. The results were not bad as you can see. Look out for my Boy George Photos; I was particularly pleased with those.

Here are the Tour dates if you are interested:-

I can't believe you have just admitted to that! LOL! They sang Goodbye Stranger, Alright Now (The Free Cover) and Heartache. They are 49 and 52 respectively. Not bad at all. Heartache was a massive hit for the girls reaching number 2 in the hit parade!

Thanks Tony, I am very well. If you want to meet up anytime to do some photography just let me know. We could invite Anthony but somehow I don't think he would come!
