luinalda: (Hugh Laurie)

Okay, I really start feeling like spamming you with this... *lol* Sorry. ;-)

But yesterday Hugh was a guest at the German TV show "Wetten, dass...?" (which I kinda hate, but bravely endured watching just for him :p *gg*). I have recorded his performance of "You Don't Know My Mind" and just uploaded it to YouTube, for anyone who's interested to take a look. :-) 


Every time I hear this song I love it even more. <3

I bought his album yesterday, btw. Haven't listened to it properly yet, but will do so later today. :-)
Too bad one of my favourite songs from the concert ("Hallelujah, I Love Her So") isn't on it, though. *sniffles*

I noticed several people filming during the concert, so I checked out youtube today and sure found a couple of short videos. They are quite good quality and give a little impression of the gig. :-)
Thanks to the filmers/uploaders! I saved them all as they are a great reminder of a wonderful evening. <3 
 
Check them out! )

So, Hugh Laurie concert in Hamburg last night. :D And it was awesome!!! \o/ Not that I expected anything else, of course. *gg* I'm quite bad at writing reports, but I'll give it a go. ;-) *lol*

We met up at about 5 p.m. (we were 6 people) and then went to a Thai restaurant on the Reeperbahn. I have no idea anymore what my dish was called (something with chicken *g*), but it was very yummy. :-) We ate and talked and had a nice time. At about 7.30 p.m. we left the restaurant and went over to the concert's location, the Café Keese. Doors had already opened at 7 p.m. and there was still quite a long queue waiting outside. But we got inside comparatively quick nevertheless.
The Café Keese isn't that big really and it was already very crowded. We made our way to about the middle of the room on the right side and stayed there. The stage was pretty low and frankly we couldn't really see anything. A bit of the microphone at the most, if we were lucky. ;-) *g* And it was really hot!
At 8 p.m. the band came on stage and started playing, and at some point Hugh must've joined them because the crowd started cheering some more. *gg* I didn't really see him at first, but caught some glimpses eventually.
He greeted us with some German sentences. :D Don't remember them exactly, but something along the lines of "Guten Abend" (good evening), "Willkommen..." (welcome) and "Mädchen und Jungen" (girls and boys). He also said then that that was actually all he knew in German. *g* And asked how many of us understood English. :D  

My view actually got much better after about half of the concert and I could see Hugh quite without problems when he was standing at the microphone in the middle of the stage. *yay* I still had some problems when he was sitting at the piano on the left side, but at least I could see most of his head for most of the time then. *lol*

At the end, they got off the stage and when they came back on once more, Hugh said that that was actually all they had but they could just start all over again. *lol* We sure wouldn't have minded. :D They played one more song and then it was over (~ 9.30 p.m.).

I really enjoyed the music (even though I don't normally listen to Blues tbh) and I'm definitely going to buy his album! :-) [BTW, can somebody tell me why the German Amazon lists it twice? Both with different prices and release dates? *is confused*]. I think I liked 3 songs in particular. One of them was "Let them talk". I don't remember the titles of the other ones, so I'll have to try and find them on the CD. *g*

I thought the audience was in a pretty good mood too. :-) Altogether nice atmosphere.
Several people wore House shirts (who'd have thought, right? :p) which I didn't really find that appropriate, but ok... There was also one guy in a complete House outfit. He was standing a bit in front of me during the concert and kept waving his cane around every now and then, and afterwards, when we were still standing outside talking, we saw him "limping by" (seriously!). *lol* IDEK.

Happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] haruechan!!! *hugs* Hope you had a wonderful day! :-)
Sorry I'm late. I meant to post yesterday but then... forgot. *fails*

And a Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] arielen! Hope you're having a nice day too. :-)


In other news:

- Just finished watching last Friday's Graham Norton Show. Guests were David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Josh Groban and Jon Richardson (no idea who he is really *sorry*). It really was very entertaining! I laughed so much!! :D Loved David's stories about the "autograph under the shower" and his spleen with the socks ("David, you crazy?" *lol*).LMAO And I quite liked the song Josh Groban performed. :-)

- Looks like I'll get my new laptop back this weekend. \o/ FINALLY!!!! About bloody time, really! *lol* All in all it's been, um, I don't know... about 5-6 weeks?! *eek*

- Just one more week until Hugh Laurie now! *yay* I'm really getting quite excited. :D Apparently I'm going to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 and [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict before the gig. :-)

- Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] corpsebride05 I now have a Dreamwidth account, here. If anyone of you is over there too, please link me to your accounts so I can add you. :-) I'm not sure yet if I'm actually going to use it, though... I'm building up my profile at the moment, just in case. *gg*
And while we're at it... is anyone of you on Facebook, who I haven't friended yet? Please let me know as well!

- I have 2 episodes left of Supernatural's season 5, so hopefully I'll finish it today. *yay*

Mhh, I think there was something else that I wanted to post, but can't remember anymore... So that was it for now. ;-)

The weather was so beautiful today that I spent 4 hours outside. :-) Taking a random walk through the city, taking lots of photographs (seriously, more than 100!), having a little snack while sitting in the sun, and in between it all buying a couple of things that I needed.

photographic evidence ;-) )




In other news: I'm going to see Hugh Laurie live on 27 April!! *squee* He'll be presenting his new album, which will be released at the end of April. I'm looking very much forward to it. \o/ I'm pretty much broke as it is, but this is a one-time opportunity to get even remotely close to him, so I just had to take it. :D
Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 for letting me know about this! *hugs* I would have totally missed it otherwise. It would be really nice if we could meet up there too. :-)

I ended up really loving the series! ♥

My Sherlock DVD arrived today!! \o/ *squeee* That was pretty quick, only 3 days. :-) So guess what I'll be doing this evening (and the rest of the weekend). ♥♥ :D

Also started watching "Fortysomething" yesterday. It seems to be a bit... weird. *gg* But it's very enjoyable and quite funny sometimes. :D Looking forward to the rest of the episodes. Hadn't seen anything with Hugh Laurie for a long time, so it's nice having him back. <3 And Benedict is adorable as well. <3<3

Yay!!
