Trevor Horn @ Royal Festival Hall..


Last night Stuart, Jo, Dave and I went to see Trevor Horn and crew perform at the Royal Festival Hall on London's glitzy South Bank.

All the hits, all the covers, and all the (unnecessary) reinterpretations you could hope for. As ever with a Trevor Horn gig, the sound was amazing. He recreates his studio on stage - complete with computers, eight-piece string orchestra, backing vocalists, and all the sound engineers you could throw a stick at.

We sang, we jiggled about a bit, he laughed, we sang some more.

Great fun. And nostalgia by the bucket load.
