McCorkell, Strabane, (16)..........
Well the show kicked off, with the very talented and
Lovely Don Mescall. His very impressive song writing
and his voice had a lovely husky sound to it. I got
to meet him and bought a copy of his E.P. which had
3 tracks, The three which he preformed all very good!!
Really down to earth and a lovely singer!
Then of course, Mr Brian Kennedy came on after a short
interval, running in from the back of the room, in his
satin black suit and pink shirt, getting better looking
in my opinion ;) and in general looking very sexy! I
was there with 3 friends and I have to say, we all had
the hots for Mr Kennedy!
His humour and stage manor was just brilliant,
and he just had everyone eating out of his hand, his
witty comments and his way with the audience was first
class, and it was clearly obvious he enjoyed the audience
as much as they enjoyed him, but who doesn't enjoy a
Donegal audience. His set list was very similar to that
on the 15th in the other review, with his classics,
but the ones we love! and of course many from 'On Song'
and 'On Song 2. He also gave us a little rendition
of some other favourites, such as 'For The Good Times'
and 'Dry Your Eyes Mate.'
He made a joke about his encore and how he would normally
go and chill out in the dressing room, but as it was
so far away so he said that he would just hide in behind
the speakers at the side of the stage and we were to
pretend he was away for half an hour, and he then reappeared
apologising for taking so long! He then ended the show
with a breath taking acapella version of "You Raise
Me Up", you could have heard a pin drop during
that performance and the audiences response was phenominal!
I also must take the opportunity to praise the wonderful
band, I'm not sure of there names, but they were fabulous,
and it all worked wonderfully. The night in all was
a fantastic night! Enjoyed by everyone, and I can't
wait until the next show!!
My Friends and I had the pleasure of meeting Brian afterward,
our first time, we were so nervous, but he was lovely,
made us even more in love, he called us Charlie's Angels
and did a fantastic pose in the picture, which hopefully
is in the pictures with fans! We are 15 and 16 but crazy
about the one and only Mr Brian Kennedy, He really is
a star! A voice so Pure and wonderful, and his range
and vocal ability amazing, I believe I could even hear
a snare drum effect toward the end, a task which is
very hard to master by even the most talented of vocalists.
I hope he remembers us. A wonderful night!!
**WE LOVE YOU BRIAN, YOUR ANGELS**
