last time we saw 10cc was in June 1993. It was their last major
gig of the tour. We wanted to tell you about this because we would
like to see if anyone else has experienced anything unusual when
they saw 10cc!
had been ten years since we had seen 10cc and first we travelled
was a great concert but the crowd was very "laid back" and very
quiet, it wasn't 10cc's fault however. We think it was due to the
venue. It looked like a "sports hall" and it felt very cold and
the security were very over the top. Towards the end of the concert
things began to warm up, but still the security men would not let
you move at all!
days later, 10cc played in Cardiff at St. David's Hall, which was
a complete sell out. The atmosphere was very different and the security
were calm and laid back and we think 10cc gave a huge response to
the welcome they were given.
highlights of the night were obviously playing their greatest hits
were a few unusual moments of the concert and the first one was
at the start of Dreadlock Holiday. Eric rose from behind his keyboard
and started dancing around the stage. You don't often see him doing
that, do ya?!
came the real 'shock', after finishing "I'm not in love". All the
band left the stage and then Eric returned on his own with guitar
in hand. Eric treated us to a rendition of "I'm Not In Love" in
a strong Lancashire accent and carried it through for a couple of
minutes which everyone found very amusing.
the final song "Slow Down", the support band ran on stage and presented
10cc with two huge pizzas which seemed to be eaten very quickly
within the band. We don't know about you, but it seemed very strange
waiting for the band to finish their pizza and then start the concert
all in all, it was a fantastic concert, unusual, funny and very
end the evening in perfection, we met the band later on that night.
We made a few photos of the band, which is just as well, because
by the time Anne-Marie had met Eric, she was in a state of shock
and couldn't remember anything afterwards!
