Had a wonderful time seeing Anthony tonight that man never ceases to amaze me.
My friend Laura (another Laura!) and I got there at about 5:30 (took us two hours!) and got lost. That place is TOO BIG!!!
We eventually found ACOF Laura... Anthony said he was performing at the front of David Jones so we waited.. and waited.. then realised hey, it's 6:15 and nobody has set up a stage. We asked the ABC shop where it was happening and Anthony was wrong! It was in the midst of Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Coach, Burberry.. He'd have felt right at home! A few people joined us at the stage, sat down & had a chat.
Then Tim came out, introduced himself, explained the concept of a CD ( ) and had a competition to win Anthony's CD! Our very own Laura won, woo!
Anthony was introduced, he spoke about the album THIRTY, made a few jokes.. then performed. Oh that voice He sung Go The Distance, My All and Leave Right Now. I was very happy - My All and Leave Right Now are two of my favourites! Would love to have heard I'll Be The One.. doesn't matter, 59 days till the THIRTY tour kicks off.. I can wait!
Everybody lined up and we all had the chance to go up and talk to Anthony, get our CD signed and get a photo. I got CDs signed for my mum, my nonna & I. Anthony said he wished it was July 13 already.. me too
After everybody got their autographs, he came down for a forum photo with Lina, Laura, Dante, Elyse, Lori and I I had such a great time surrounded by my favourite people. What a night! I didn't do any shopping though oops. Was too excited to see Anth, haha!
I didn't take many photos, sorry. The lighting was pretty terrible so I used my good camera for a video of the whole set instead. Will upload it later tonight, should be up tomorrow! ..but here are a couple of photos!
