Well, what a weekend! After 2 straight days of rehearsals, at last it was time to get on stage and show you what we had been up to for the past 4 months!
A packed Tiverton Community Arts Theatre crowd didn’t let us down with the warmest of welcomes on a freezing cold night. You knew it was a tour preview show.
A chance for us to run through the set in front of an audience and see how everything fitted and worked.
You were told ‘the wheels may come off’ and when they did you laughed with us and cheered us on.
The reviews today have been amazing, in terms of social media, personal messages, emails and phone calls, and the band dispersed with hugs and massive smiles on their faces. I hope it came across how much fun we are all having.
We laughed a lot in preparation for the night, and were still smiling at the end of it all, which is testament to the outstanding team of musicians and characters And Finally Phil Collins has in it.
We are so proud of the show we have put together for 2018. Those of you who were there will know the massive surprise that our new ‘Phil’ Chris O’Connell got last night from the main man, and we will have a video of that moment soon to share with everyone else who wasn’t there.
Thank you so much from all of us. Keep following the tour, come to see us if and when you can, and keep the music of Mr Collins up where it belongs!
If you have any comments or suggestions re the show, please message us or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do this for you.
See you on the road! Mandy, Tour Manager, And Finally Phil Collins and all the AFPC family xx
