Adele Sees André in Insbrook

Olympic Hall in Innsbruck

Right on time the music started with the countdown clocks on the big screens and 76 Trombones. I just love that tune, and how very fitting. Seventy Six Trombones led the big parade, with a hundred and ten cornets close at hand they were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuoso's …

Of course I know the programme, it will be exactly the same as in Munich 3 weeks ago, but It does not matter to me, I am there in the front row again, and I'm loving it. There was no 'high five' for me, I was too close to the centre of the stage.
André is on top form as usual. As he introduced the Tenors, and Gary, I gave a loud 'bravo'.. André looked straight at me. I think he thinks I am Australian! One of the highlights of the first half is Sopranos and tenors with the 'My Fair Lady Medley'... Wonderful stuff.

In the Second half André and the men are on stage, no ladies; they start fooling around and I am doing a bit of video, (if I can stop giggling enough, this might be OK for Youtube). Just then, Cord Peters started taking pictures with a Polaroid of André, who is 'posing'.. André throws the photo down ... it suddenly hits me what is going on.. (I should have remembered from Munich) I leap up from my chair, and I am on it like a bullet.. Its mine! There is nothing on the photo (in Munich I reported that it was a fake Polaroid). No folks, its the real thing! (if they do the same sketch on future tours) be prepared at the beginning of the second half if you are sitting 'on the floor'.. get up the front, André will throw the Polaroid photos down to you!
I missed out on having one of those photos in Munich, so now I am going for gold.. Another photo, I jump up, and André almost hands it down to me..But now others are starting to cotton on.. and are also approaching the stage.. a slightly stern husband says, "Babe, they are not all for you" ...
It was all over.. far too soon. We exited the Olympic hall and it was about -12 Celsius. I go and speak to the driver of the JSO bus, which is around the side. He tells me he thinks they will come out in about one and a half hours. I looked at my husband and he is shivering with cold & fed up that he did not get a nice dinner that evening, due to the concert and I have not got the heart to make him wait for the sought after autograph ....... I’ll try again in Maastricht.

PS ~ I did not know about the ‘hair discussion’ before I went to the concert, otherwise I would have concentrated on ‘hair photos’..! Frankly I find it hilaRIEUus ! OK, I take your point , looking at the photo with Frau Stolba from the Austrian tourist board. Yes, it is maybe a little shorter on the sides, but not excessively so. And from the back, it looks pretty much the same.. lovely curly locks. ~ Adele

Whoa! Adele!
2 real Polariods in a row? He looked soooo cute in the pic. I wondered if the pics were taken right at the concert. Did you see them coming out from the camera?
Thanks for the "Fresh-from-the-Oven report. Yeah, his hair seems to have grown pretty fast!

I think his haircut was not shorter, maybe a little bit, on that certain picture. Couldn't it be that the "shadow" caused the difference?
Well, Adele, thanks for your review, I loved to read it!!

Thanks for your report Adele. You hit the jackpot with two poloroid pictures! One of these days, you'll get that autograph too. ~Kay
