I was at a rock concert on Saturday.
That’s not a sentence I write very often!
In reality it was a picnic alongside a rock concert.
A Day on the Green -four bands playing in a vineyard. The main act was legendary Australian band Hunters and Collectors. It was a great concert with the crowd dancing and singing along for many of our old favourites.
Like all bands they left the stage with the crowd wanting more. So we clapped and shouted “more, more, more”, knowing they would come back, waiting for classics yet to be played. Some people around us began to pack up, and many, including the people beside us, left the ground.
“How can they leave?” I wondered, “They haven’t played ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’ yet.” The band returned to screams and thundering applause and played another bracket that included the song I’d been waiting for. But the people beside us had missed it. They’d already gone.
