……. Nigel and I treated Darrell to indulge in his guilty pleasure, to wit one ticket to see Gary Barlow at the LG Arena in Birmingham.
……. judging by from the heart-rending phone call I received from Darrell shortly afterwards, Gary obviously did not disappoint, well, ….. except perhaps one tiny weeny let down ……
…… when he failed to pluck Darrell from the audience to sing “A Million Loves Songs” to! However, it was understandable, despite Darrell pleading, with all vigour his heart and soul possessed, (at the top of his voice), Darrell sadly reasoned that his being sat in Block 9. Row Q, it would have been hard for Gary to pick him out his plaintiff calls and anyway, it was also a long way for Darrell to run to the stage to be with his hero…… and Gary would have had to sing another song while waiting for him, thus spoiling a beautiful moment!!!
…… where Darrell said he felt he could almost touched Gary…… what is he like?
So all in all for Darrell had a most wonderful night ……. and a million love songs later Darrell was a very happy if emotional bunny!!!
