Cliff Richard and the Shadows Newcastle Arena October 12

Cliff Richard and the Shadows Newcastle Arena October 12th 2009
Watching Cliff’s TV show every week. Going to see Summer Holiday at the pictures. Wanting a strat like Hank’s. Spending hours learning how to play “Apache” and “Wonderful Land” and still never being able to play them properly. Buying an old 78 of “Travelling Light” and playing it again and again. Watching Cliff on Eurovision and willing “Congratulations” to win (it didn’t ; of course). Cliff and the Shadows bring back lots of memories for me. They may not exactly be cool these days, but back in their day they meant something to lots of us.
So I collected all those memories together in my head and went along to Newcastle Arena to see Cliff and the Shads for one more (and probably the last) time.
And there they were; just three rows away form me ; on the stage playing all my favourites: In the Country; Apache; FBI; Summer Holiday; Don’t Talk to Him; On the Beach; Bachelor Boy, Atlantis, Travelling Light, Time drags by. Finished with the Young Ones. Lots of references to “The Toon”;a great homecoming for Hank and Bruce.
Great show; great memories; Cliff and Hank look great; Cliff’s voice is great (and its his 69th birthday the next day!); Hank plays great!
