André's First Concert in Australia ~ Nov. 13th in Melbourne!
Al (Girard) has traveled to Australia to see André and all in their World Tour! He has sent us some pictures of the first concert in Melbourne Thursday night by meeting with our friend Jann from the Aussie Fansite and sending them through her computer. André again makes our world so much smaller. :)
Below is a little of what Jann wrote about the First Concert on the Tour and her VERY FIRST LIVE CONCERT with André!
It was a brilliant opening night at Telstra Dome last night, started the night off meeting up with friends from Interstate and Overseas and matching faces to names. André and the Orchestra were in great spirit and treated us to their full ensemble of talents. Mirusia knocked us out in a magnificent red sparkling gown and was given a resounding "welcome home" applause for which we were rewarded with a raucous AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE - OI OI OI - the audience loved it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Mirusia loved it even more. To be on tour in her homeland for the first time and be so enthusiastically applauded would have been a tremendous emotional "high" for her. It was trieully fantastic to see the audience enthusiastically join in, there were so many couples up waltzing and down the front for the encores, it was like looking at a traffic jam, can you imagine what Saturday night is going to be like !!!! I have to admit however to being traumatised, "Banana's in Pyjama's" was fun BUT when they played the theme to "Neighbours" - well I fell off my perch !!! and sorry folks - no balloons, they will be there tonight and Saturday night. After the concert, our charming journalist from Channel 9 News ambushed me again by the fountain and again I found myself looking into a camera and microphone, how did I enjoy the concert? did I have a favourite during the concert? - still on a high, I blubbered between "everything" then "Bolero", back to "everything" and back to "Bolero". I have my fingers crossed I end up on the "cutting floor". Now it's time to get ready for Saturday ... Cheers, Jann
