Sunday 8 February 2015, I found myself amongst thousands in anticipation to see The Script and Phillip Phillips perform live at the Grand west Arena. They were absolutely amazing (in my irish accent). Everyone was singing along word for word with full belief that they were reaching the notes. From start to finish the Irish trio captivated the audience with their charm, epic guitar chords and lyrics that have you believing each song was written for you.
It was my second time seeing The Script as they were in South Africa in 2011. Their live performances never disappoint, so it was a done deal that I would go again for their No Sound Without Silence Tour. Amongst their classics, For the first time and Breakeven, they sang Superheroes, Man on a wire and No Good in Goodbye to mention a few of which they then finished off with Hall of Fame. One of the highlights was when Danny, the lead singer phoned this guy’s ex girlfriend from the audience, making it clear that she now meant Nothing to him as he sang another one of their famous hits, Nothing! The thought remains however, was that ex-girlfriend flattered that she received a phone call from the hot Danny or humiliated further by the idea that she meant nothing to her ex!
The real treat for me though was seeing Phillip Phillips perform live. Many people are not familiar with him, but he won the eleventh season of American Idols. I watched him from his first audition until he claimed the title as the American Idol but my love for his music came with his rendition of Volcano. Do yourself a favour and listen to it sometime on a chilled Sunday afternoon. Phillip Phillips’s vocals leaves you wanting more with the ease and husky rawness, not to mention his guitar skills, I’m sure he had to replace some strings. But in all, his performance was amazing. He also dedicated his Gone, gone gone hit to Simba Mhere, the Top billing presenter who passed away tragically.
Up to now I still reminisce of being at the concert and it being second time around was even better. But what is a concert without a killer outfit? I wore a black sleeveless top, paired with patterned asymmetric shorts and black strapped heels. I added a bold red lipstick to break the contrast of the black and white.
P.S. I have a confession, the shorts worn in this post was bought at the kiddies section by Edgars. Sometimes it scares me to think I still fit into 11-12 year old clothes, but eventually I will have to ‘grow up’, I think not lol!
I hope you enjoyed this post
