Michael’s Travel Diary

MapOkay guys, just a quick one...

Full review to follow soon(ish)

I went to the Jay-Z concert in London last night. Not that suprising on it's own, but it took me over 5 hours to get there (straight from Isle of Wight at 330pm). I hadn't eaten all avo, and wasn't sure how good the seats were, as I bought the ticket late.

Well, I managed to get there before the show started, a miracle. Also, there isn't a bad seat in the place - Royal Albert Hall. But the concert was incredible. 30 piece orchestra, played all night. He had Memphis Bleek doing the side kick thing, and it just kept getting better. Nas (his long time 'beef') showed up and did a few songs now that they have reconciled. Then Chris Martin from Coldplay came out and played piano for a Nas and Jay-Z collaboration (Dead Presidents) and later sang the chorus to Heart of the City. Then Beyonce came out and did Crazy in Love and Deja Vu with Jay-Z. Finally, Gwyneth Paltrow sang the chorus to Song Cry on her birthday... incredible....

Have a great AFL/NRL Grand Final weekend all...
