Is anyone going to see Liza at the RFH on Friday?

I am really looking forward to seeing her again.
I have been lucky enough to see her every time she has been in London since 1977.
I know she is not as she was all those years ago but still an absolute legend and every time I go I kind of think "this is the last time I will get to see her"
Lets hope it wont be.

We'll be there worshipping at the altar of Liza as usual. Claire Teal supporting too, has the makings of an evening to remember. See you in the bar alec_e10 :)

What an amazing night! Liza was pure entertainment as always. I wasn't aware of Clare Teal before tonight either, she's incredible! My blogged memories here: http://dealj.wordpre...l-1-march-2013/

Fantastic review, far more eloquent that I could ever write. I was going to blog about it too, but there's no point because you have done it so beautifully. Thanks so much Deal J.

Yes great review in the Guardian.
It was an amazing night from a true legend. The audience reaction was fantastic and just would not let her get off the stage at the end.
I have seen Liza live many times over the years and she is my all time favourite performer.

I did know Clare Teal's work having heard some of her stuff and also seen her at the John Wilson Orchestra concert at the Proms. She has a great voice. You could tell at the beginning that a lot of the audience were not familiar and were only half paying attention but by a couple of songs into her set they started to listen and she got a great reception at the end.

Moan coming up now.
I could not believe the "bad behaviour" my many people in the audience.
Now if this was a pop concert at the 02 I could almost expect it but the RFH at £120 a ticket....................
People constantly talking during the show, lighting up the hall with the glow from their smartphones whilst they took pictures, sent texts etc and a woman near me even on the phone to her babysitter during Liza's set!!!! I must have also been sitting in the weak bladder section as there was a constant flow of people going to the loo.
Am I turning into a Victor Meldrew in my old age or are people getting worse when they go to the theatre?

That's very kind of you, thanks - although you do yourself an injustice there! I've left a comment on your blog too.

Why?
Turn up the signal... wipe out the noise

I love Liza - more for her sense of humour than voice nowadays, but there's no denying she's a brilliant performer!
If I stay awake, it must be good.
