The Neil Innes Concert

Yes! I finally got to see Neil Innes! And, as promised, I took tons of pictures. I also took some videos. Irealized that being able to be breathing the same air as Neil is quite an honor, and one that I wanted to share with all of you.
PS: If you ever get a chance to go and meet him, Neil Innes is a real sweetheart in person!
Here he is singing "Imitation Song":
Here he is singing "Stealing Time":
Here he is singing "One of those people":
Here he is singing "Another Day":
Here he is singing "How Sweet it is to be an idiot":
Here's him singing "Cheese and onions":
And, yes. That is me singing along.

what was it that made the sound in the end that almost made him loose his concentation and start giggeling? haha.

Lvndr HppE at 4:18 pm April 24

One of the waitors dropped a glass. I guess it threw his concentration off, so he laughed. lol

the_thina at 4:52 pm April 24

Lvndr HppE at 5:18 pm April 23

Oh, thank you. Thank you both. There are two more I have to put up. I don't know the names of the songs. One of them, it's completely incoherent to hear what he's singing, because the audience is laughing so hard.

mrsCutout at 2:41 pm April 24

thewastelandr: Love the videos you put on facebook!

Lvndr HppE: Here he is singing "One of those people" Just posted it to youtube, because I wasn't completely sure about the name of the song.

Holly: that's fantastic! you got some really great pics!

Kasmira: Thank you for this amazing post :) <3 I love it... Nice glasses he had btw... ;)

Lvndr HppE at 8:28 am April 22

The glasses were for his song "Godfrey Daniel". lol. Gosh, I wish I had recorded that one. It really is every Elton John song.

the_thina at 11:59 am April 22

Kasmira at 3:47 pm April 21

Paute at 4:22 pm April 21

Yes! He looks amazing!

upperclasstwit: Thanks for sharing!!! can't believe he was that close to home, and I was that far away!!! *sighs*

the_thina: watched the vids now.
hes still got it, whatever "it" is. :)

Lvndr HppE at 3:22 pm April 21

I know! And he has a lot of energy for an old man. I brought my dad to the concert, and he fell asleep. Meanwhile, Neil was still signing autographs and chatting with fans when we left.

Lvndr HppE at 3:46 pm April 21

By the way, my dad is younger than Neil.

the_thina at 3:50 pm April 21

so is mine... but only about 6 months younger. :P

Lvndr HppE at 8:27 am April 22

My dad is 57. He's a lot younger than Neil.

the_thina at 4:25 pm April 22

7 years... not that much. no. at least I dont think so... thats the difference between me and my brother

the_thina at 4:25 pm April 22

the age-difference between me and my brother I ment to say

the_thina at 3:30 pm April 21

I dont think he is THAT old. when he is 95 he is old, but now... 65? only a baby! :P
hahaha, your dad has bad taste it rude to fall asleep on a concert!

Lvndr HppE at 8:24 pm April 22

My dad is just like that. When it comes to that time he usually falls asleep, he falls asleep. I once saw my dad fall asleep standing up, after drinking a large coffee.

the_thina at 8:29 pm April 22

hahahaha. thats brutal.

Kasmira at 3:50 pm April 21

Yeah, I agree. Neil is just a boy ;)

Paute: Wow! nice pictures! I so happy for you!

Lvndr HppE at 10:26 am April 21
