I Don't see a thread on this anywhere???
Anthony is in Ipswich tonight at the Carols by Candlelight and the way I found out is by my ex, Luke's father, sending me a pic of himself standing next to Anthony!!!! aaahhhhhhh!!! am sooo jealous. Of course he will tease me all night now. He is working there as security and failed to let me know this *feel like choking someone* haha

Well I hope it's a great night for you Anthony!


I do love Anthony's new music but reallllly miss him and that voice singing ballads and would really love to be there tonight to hear Anth sing the Carols with that beautiful voice. I got a little taste of it. *sigh*

I went last year and couldn't get to sit anywhere but way back where I could only just see Anth on the screen so I am guessing it would have been the same this year anyway. bummer


I wonder if anyone from here is there, there must be, unless I have missed a thread on tonight somewhere else??

Love you Anth, Tim, wish I was there!!!


Yeah you have fun won't you Darren, no touching!!

Sorry you missed being there Tammy, nothing quite compares to Anthony singing Carols does it. :wub:


Cherie from the forum and her little son Benji were going tonight, so hopefully we will hear a lot more about the night and what he sang.


Hope your ex's dad enjoyed the night even if he was working.

We were there and looked for Cherie and Benji but could not see them. Anthony was amazing as always. You would not believe that he was not able to talk yesterday.

We were there!!! Got there around 6.30ish (Benjamin had a medical appointment to attend, so we had to go home to freshen up, grab some Maccas on the way, and we even got lost going out to Ipswich - ended up on Cunningham Highway, with very little petrol in the car...lol).

I managed to work our way up to the front row, but on the right hand side (Anth's left from where he was standing on stage) - but we were in a bad position, right next to the speakers, so my videos (audio) aren't very good, plus they are a bit all over the place as I was trying to juggle my camera, phone and Benjamin....lol.

Didn't take many photos as I concentrated on video - but bummed out on that, so sorry :'( Did try - but it wasn't to be this time around. Hopefully someone else got some great pics/video that they can post. Again, truly sorry as I know how much everyone appreciates it.

Our highlight of the evening was when Anth dedicated "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" (as he said)...to a very special little boy, named Benni. If only Anth could've seen the smile on this little boy's face, especially after the rough afternoon he had at his medical appointment. That smile alone made everything else that he has had to endure over the past few months, melt away - it was such a moment to treasure.

I am not sure if everyone is aware or not, but Benjamin has been diagnosed with special needs (ADHD, ASD and ODD), so the last few months of constant medical tests, appointments and psych evaluations is slowly taking its toll on him, so for Anth to acknowledge him tonight, meant absolutely the whole world to this little 5 yr old.

Thank you so much Anth - you truly are amazing in so many ways.

To this very day, people knock me for loving/supporting Anthony as much as I do, but tonight he proved to those why he has my continued love and support as a performer and as an individual. You don't find many celebs who care about their loyal supporters as much as Anth does. He has my love and continued support always. To those who knock me, you might think I'm not cool, up with the times or even daggy - I honestly don't care. I prefer to support a true Australian talent who has a heart of gold and a cheeky, wicked sense of humour.

As Benjamin would say...I love you from my heart, to the moon, all the way back to your heart. Anthony - you truly mean the world to me and my little boy. Thank you so much for caring about your loyal ACOFians. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives (even though you don't know many of us personally).

Much love and hugs today, tomorrow and always,

Cherie and Benjamin
xx

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

To our dearest Anth - you are our heartbeat. We love you to the moon and back xx

Thanks Di *sigh*, I really really miss hearing the carols and the ballads as well, 'A new chapter' my fave still! Listen to it in the car again after some time and *sigh* I have to say it is perfection!!

Anyway..
Here is a pic of Anth and Darren (really should have and could have been Anth and me) at the Carols. Darren escorted Anth back to the car after his performance and was so happy to do so (so was I hehehe)
Anth looking gorgeous as ever, even Darren said so and that Anth has a very infectious smile also.
Acutally I think Darren is in love now lmao


Anthony, Darren said to tell you that you are an extremely lovely guy and he said your assistant? was a very lovely guy also. He really enjoyed the night and
said your performance was spectacular, you have a beautiful voice!!!

So there ya go, I can't say as I was not there!! *cries* I don't even know what the set list was??

Oh Darren also said he will now buy your albums lol


But thanks so much again for the "Merry Christmas" made my night!!!! again again, please lol
Even though you don't know who I am!! You should by now, surely! *cries again*

Hope you enjoyed the night also Anth, although very hot!!
take care
And all those that went, am sure you enjoyed yourselves!!

OK...forgot to put up what Anth sang...

First, Anth started with a Lionel Ritchie classic "All Night Long" before going onto a Michael Buble song "Everything".

Then, there was no need to introduce the next song, a Callea classic (I think we all know which one I'm talking about)...The Prayer.

Anth then sat on the stool and sang "Grown Up Christmas List" - must admit, after the beautiful performance of The Prayer (as only Anth can do time and time again), this one pulled at my heart strings a little - there may or may have not been a tear or two as this is my all-time fave Christmas songs :)

Then...the highlight of the night...Anth dedicated the next song, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, to his littlest fan, Benjamin.

The last song was Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

It was all over too fast - could have stayed there much longer listening to Anth sing.

No other performer gives me goosebumps and leaves me wanting more, quite like Anth. I'm pretty sure that Anth is my drug, and I'm addicted already (have been for the past 9 yrs) - so no cure is necessary :)

Again, I'm so sorry my pics/videos didn't turn out this time - hopefully someone will upload something to YouTube and if I happen to see it, I'll post them to the forum.

Much love,
Cherie and Benjamin

Thankyou Cherie for your beautiful review and so lovely that Anthony dedicated a song to Benji :wub: it would have put a big smile on his face. It sounds a wonderful night and love what he sang, a little bit of Buble sounds nice and Grown Up Christmas list is definately one of my favourites. Don't worry about the video's Cherie, you had your hands full. :hugs:

Did Rachael sing after Anthony, how did she go. Glad you had a lovely night.



Thanks for your photo Tammy and Darren's review, that's so good that he is a Callea convert now. :blush:


Sounds like a very special night.

Loved reading your review Cherie, it actually brought tears to my eyes. I can only imagine how excited little Benjamin was, I am so happy that you both could make it despite your detour, lol. I totally agree with your reasons why we love Anthony so much. He really cares for his fans and is constantly making new ones. Don't worry about videos I am just glad that you and Benjamin had a great time.

Tammy thank you for posting the photo of Darren and Anthony. I love hearing that there is another Anthony convert. It sounded like it was a great night. ��

Cherie, sorry to hear about Benjamin. You both must be really stressed out. I'm a teacher and have come across many students with the same special needs. Hopefully Benjamin will get all the support he needs there. Hugs!

Thank You so much Cherie for your beautiful review & I'm so very very happy & excited for you & Benjamin. :wub: Anthony really is such a kind sweetheart & cares so much for his fans right from his littlest fan to his old ones. I can just see Benjamin's eyes light up when Anthony did that for Benjamin. :wub: What a very caring generous loving young man OUR beautiful ANTHONY is. :wub: I'm glad you & Benni had a great night Cherie I know how fabulous ( as do you ) Anthony was last year. :thud: I loved Anthony's song list & " Grown Up Christmas List " is certainly one of my favourites as well.

Cherie I'm really sorry to hear about Benjamin as you know I have two grandchildren with special needs also & I know its really hard. :hugs: I think Benjamin's beautiful little personality wll get him a long way. :hugs:

princessma I'm so glad you were able to go as well. I'm sure you had a fantastic night as well as we always do when Anthony performs.

Thank You so much Tammy for the gorgeous picture of Anthony with Darren. It is a really beautiful picture. I'm so sorry you didn't know about the Carols & weren't able to be there. :( I hope you get to see Anthony perform live in the near future. :xfingers: As we all know there is nothing more fullfilling than seeing & hearing Anthony perform live. :thud:

Thanks for the review Cherie and the photo Tammy. It would have been great to be there. I love that Anthony is so good to his fans and it will keep bringing us back to him, that and his amazing vocals. I am sure Benjamin would have been excited to hear his name mentioned. Don't worry Cherie about your obsession with Anthony we all here are the same.

Thanks Christine, Jaffa and thanks Di for the pic of Anthony and Rachael and Pat, I do hope you are feeling so much better Pat and please stay that way! I do wonder when I will see Anthony again. I seem to keep missing him everywhere. I guess a lot of us are in the same boat.

I know Luke would have love to have been there last night too. He may only be 2 1/2 but he knows who Anthony is and listens to Anth's music on his Ipod ! He kept saying last night where's Anthony lol
Come back Anthony!
Bet its going to be awesome at Luna Park. I would be going with Luke
if I could afford to!

Did anyone else go last night???
