Thursday 13th July 2006: Brian, thank
you for SHARING your music with us! I cannot remember
when I sang my heart out like that in a concert! I felt
like we, the audience, had come to see and listen to
you, but equally you had come to see us and spend that
evening with us – enjoying it as much as we did.
You were up on the stage … only to enable everybody
to see you properly!
connection! You made that night and my first visit to
Karen, Ruth Green, Bristol UK.....
Well what can we say! Brilliant as usual. We
came over from Bristol, UK and went to three shows,
Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Brian's voice
will always amaze us. He was introduced to the soundtrack
of "Monty Python" which was funny to hear
again as it hasn't been played for a while. It was nice
to hear the songs from his new album "Homebird"
and each night was different. It's a shame some people
found the need to chat during the performance and even
film Brian from a mobile phone. Brian certainly didn't
let this unsettle him and carried on like the true professional
It was very strange
to have people come up to us saying they recognised
us from the Live DVD!!! Maybe we are seeing Brian too
much NO WAY!!!
It was great to see Brian again after the show,
got the new album signed (this is the only CD I have
left to sign!) and had a quick chat, he is just so charming
and friendly. We cannot wait for him to come over to
the UK to tour again. Great support from Don Mescall,
we saw him in Belfast last November supporting Brian
at The Waterfront Hall.
brilliant nights in the Olympia. Each night slightly
different, best entertainment in a long time.
Brian's voice is out on its own.
have played Homebird several times since. I think 'Turn
to Me' and 'Destination' are my favourites at the moment,
sung with such feeling and pitch, just fantastic.
Of course 'You raise me up' will always be very special.
I met Brian on the three nights, he is most
interesting and charming man. I hope to see Brian in
Belfast or Derry, I haven't been to either cities for
some time now. I will save a few holiday days from work
Thank you again for such brilliant concerts, wish I
could sing, I would never stop! All the best. Martha.
Just back from Dublin after seeing Brian in
the Olympia on Saturday night 15th June. I was really
looking forward to it as we haven't seen him for a long
We dropped off the kids and headed up
to Dublin. Got there early and had a great meal in Grafton
street. Headed on down to the Olympia just got there
on time as Don Mescal was just coming on, he was very
good his voice gets more deeper every time I hear him,
he was excellent.
think the best part of a Brian Kennedy gig is the start,
he just walks out on the stage head high, as if to say
here I am, get ready for a great night. It was
fab, good to hear the new ones and the old. He was very
relaxed he just gave his all to each and every song.
Each one was as good as the last one. It was over before
we knew it, but fab as always.
Got my CD Homebird
signed and had a few words. A great night. Hope
to see him soon. Thanks Jane for all your input, we
would be lost without you. Keep up the good work Fred.
My husband Bernie treated us to go to Dublin
for the concert at the Olympia on 15th July and it was
FANTASTIC. What a great show, we lost complete track
The first time we saw Brian was at the Albert
Hall when he supported Clannad. We have since seen him
in Croyden and Milton Keynes. We are now living just
north of Aberdeen, so please please can Brian come to
Aberdeen on his next tour. Once again saturday was Brilliant,
thanks to all who made it such a memorable night. From
Gail..... (14th July)
Having travelled from County Down, picnicking
on the beach in Malahide en-route, I arrived in Dublin
on Friday night in the sweltering heat but full of excitement.
Having checked in to my B and B near the Ha'penny bridge
Imade my way through the throngs to the Olympia full
of anticipation and butterflies at the thought of another
BK experience. The evening kicked off with a great performance
from Don Mescal, peppered with witty anecdotes before
every song. He even managed to get the audience to impersonate
a gospel choir.
a brief interval the band appeared, including James,
and Brian's Monty Python signature tune heralded the
arrival of the great man. It seemed a long time since
I last saw him in November and I couldn't wait much
longer! Eventually on he came dressed in a black
satin jacket, black shirt and jeans and looking gorgeous.
Why do you never see men like him walking around and
available! He sang beautifully and sweetly a mixture
of old and new but luckily all of my favourites were
included, 'Silver Hearts on Chains' from the new album,
'Killaloe', 'Curragh of Kildare' and 'These Days' when
Ronan was sent up as usual.
The night was only marred by my seat
which was next to the toilet and all night a procession
of people felt the need to go and not waiting for the
end of songs to do it. I was also sitting behind the
woman who Brian gave a row to at the beginning for trying
to video him with her phone. I think everyone was surprised
that he was so angry when he is always so nice and it
did make me feel a bit tense from there on in wondering
what he might say next and if he was in a bad mood.
However, after watching the same woman then go to the
toilet 4 times, text with the light on in her phone
and chat to her friend, who was also talking loudly
and taking photos, I would happily have punched her
myself. It is a shame that people can't sit quietly
for an hour and a half and give Brian the respect and
attention he deserves and not spoil it for everyone
Feeling a bit deflated at the end that Brian
hadn't talked as much as usual, I sauntered back out
too shy to line up for an autograph but was pleasantly
surprised to see him come downstairs to the signing.
He really does take your breath away when you see him
up close! Finally having coffee at a pavement café
because it was too hot to go home, who should pass by
but James then Bill on their way home. I would have
hung on for Brian but didn't want to seem like a stalker
even though I have all the tendencies and anyway the
cafe staff were switching the lights out!
in all another great BK gig and I can't wait for the
next one. I definitely have a crush! A big fan, County
Jackie Anderson, (Birmingham UK).......
First time I have seen BK in concert, (although
for 10 years I have bought his music). Certainly wont
be my last, travelled over from Birmingham to Dublin
for the show.
What a fantastic
event, was amazed at how the crowd participated from
the very first song, by the last song I was in tears,
couldn't hold back the emotion his voice demands, they
say he has a voice to charm the angels, they are not
Got to meet him after the show, what a fantastic
way to end a brilliant night. Thanks Dr Brian,
your amazing, would love to see you in Birmingham on
your next tour. Be Happy, Be safe. Love to you as always.
