On Thursday night after work Mark, Michael and I headed to Alexandra Palace (affectionately known as "Ally Pally") to see the English band Keane.
The venue was great, Ally Pally is a big old elabourate former palace which has been converted to a nicely suited entertainment venue. It is set on one of the highest points in London (its near Hampstead Heath) with fabulous city views to boot.
ALLY PALLY VIEW......
Some of you back home may have heard of Keane, as they did have a huge hit with "Somewhere only we know" just last year. Their newest album "Under the Iron Sea" is quite good and my favourite songs are "Is it any wonder" and "Crystal Ball".
They were great to hear live and we being in only a tiny crowd of 8,000 people managed to get quite a good spot near the front.
