Saturday 19 June 2021. SKY ARTS 6.45pm - KYLIE MINOGUE live at Earls Court Arena 2005. I went to one of these stunning Kylie shows at this venue. Oddly it was the rest day between the four CREAM re-union shows i went to at The Royal Albert Hall that year. ------------------ Sunday 20 June 2021. Happy Birthday to BRIAN WILSON who is 79 today. I have seen Brian on stage over 20 times. Remember those amazing comeback shows at The Royal Festival Hall in 2002 and 2004? If was at all six shows there in 2002 and three of the six shows in 2004. Multi-night stints with the likes of Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey and many other musicians turning up to see this Beach Boys legend. ---------- Happy Birthday to LIONEL RICHIE who is 72 today. I have seen Lionel on stage several times. ------------------ Monday 21 June 2021. Happy Birthday to RAY DAVIES who is 77 today. I have seen Ray three times with The Kinks since 1978 , and several times as a solo artist. ------------------ Tuesday 22 June 2021. 22 June 2017 - It was four years ago today that i saw KRAFTWERK play The Royal Albert Hall. It was an excellent 3-D visual show where the audience were given 3-D glasses. See my Facebook page for a photo. I first saw them in 1975 at Hammersmith Odeon when I thought they were some kind of German novelty act , as i was into guitar led bands only back then.
