to go to the O2 and see Neil Diamond.

Going to eat first. We did a trial run last week and the car parks were busy even with no concert.So we are aiming to get there a bit earlier.

Can't wait

Hi Linda, I went there the other week to see The Osmonds (brilliant). There was lots of parking so don't worry - cost £20 gulp!!! - and there are lots of restaurants so book quickly when you arrive as they were very busy. Have a lovely time.

He was great...what energy for a man of his age. Two hours of feelgood music

02 was full.....20,000 people,

Slightly off putting was the huge amount of people wandering about during the whole show.....and appearing with trays of beer from the was constant. Never had that before in a concert...

Still had a great time though.

that constant stream of people carrying tays of beer goes on in the CIA here in Cardiff - very off-putting indeed - saw Elton John there a year or so back and whilst he was great [with Lulu] people going back and forth was a real pain - I wondered why they went in the first place, tickets were minimum £50 each!! Will never go to CIA again. Neil was in the Millennium Stadium - different kettle of fish altogether!!
